A year into his new role as Managing Director of Glasgow Airport, Mark Johnston expresses quiet confidence that his airport is set to reverse its recent fall in passenger numbers.

Johnston, formerly the airport’s Operations Director, was promoted to the top job in May last year just months after Ryanair had announced that it would close its base at the airport and axe all but three of 23 destinations from the airport.

Passenger numbers fell from a peak of 9.9 million in 2017 to a likely 9 million this year, but Johnston is expecting growth to resume next year.
