Thats positive. Do Air France still fly from GLA to CDG? They have the past a few times I know, seem to start.....then stop!

Is there an incentive package being offered for this route? Typical Glasgow, crying out for international flights then is let's all go to the same place! Like waiting for a bus on Argyle Street. 🤭

This looks like AF/KL Group looking to stop Vueling getting established on Paris UK routes. Will be interesting to see if this is repeated on other Vueling France-UK routes.

Nice to see TS back on YYZ-GLA with A321LR Slightly surprising restart given depths of winter and current circumstances but plans already to get back up to 4/wk next year assuming no consolidation with WestJet.

Maybe Christmas charters at this time? With things "open" at least for time being?

Took me an hour tonight to drive from the airport to Robroyston in rush hour traffic. I'd be quicker driving to EDI.

No wonder the airport is screwed.

Air Transit now dropped all flights Jan and Feb? If so did not last long did they?

Always planned to have 5 week break. Flights bookable to mid Jan and then late Feb 22 on A321LR.

Eco Friendly Glasgow

Eco friendly Glasgow -With quite a few negative reports recently on the airport and how it has in some ways deteriorated, it's nice to come across a good positive where new LED floodlights for the airfield will result in 25 percent efficiency.

A project is underway to swap the LED floodlights at Glasgow Airport’s airfield with a more sustainable model that is 25% more energy efficient.

Glasgow became the first airport in the world to upgrade to a fully LED-lit apron in compliance with the requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO). At the time, the move away from high-pressure sodium apron lighting improved energy efficiency by 60%.

How much less bright are they? New road lighting is nowhere near as bright as old school.

Not sure what road you are referring to... but Glasgow is one of the few major airports without LED runway lights.

LED runway/taxiway lights are amazingly bright... the issue being at their lowest setting the LED lights on clear nights are a bit too bright and piercing. The yellow glow of the Glasgow runway lights is quite pleasant on occasion these days. Of course in Low-Viz you want the brighter LED lights shining through the fog. Can't have everything!

One presumes ‘council roads’ where there is a steady transition to LED lighting. Infact my culdesac became so dark after change it needed formal light /lux assessment then further led upgrade.
Given the current rate of traffic at GLA, it might be a case of ‘last one to leave, turn the (filament) lights off’
