As well as taking people off on their holidays, the airport brings people to the city for tourism, business and conferences essential for the economy of the city.
Despite the excellent work being done in promoting the city abroad and attracting airlines and routes there is much more that could help.
John Swinney revealed his draft budget today and it was in such a statement four years ago that the Finance Secretary scrapped the proposed Airport Rail Link.
Since then many studies have been done and the need to improve the access to and from the airport into the city is yet to be resolved.
Next year more people will be expected to come to Glasgow with the Commonwealth Games and the only method of transporting them into Glasgow is via the M8 Motorway either by car, taxi or bus.
A long-term solution needs to be found to accommodate the expected growth at the airport over the coming years.
The UK Government still refuses to do anything with Air Passenger Duty, a barrier to bringing the additional routes that will improve business opportunities.
With a little more help, the airport can be even better for Glasgow.
