Despite facing barriers, such as Air Passenger Duty, which are a deterrent to airlines and travellers coming to the city, new routes have been added and more people are flying from the city airport.
Which presents a problem - as the only way to reach the airport from the city centre is by road, along an already heavily congested M8 motorway.
Since the Glasgow Airport Rail Link plan was scrapped by John Swinney in 2009, amid furious protests, access to the airport has been a recognised issue.
Experts from the airport, Glasgow and Renfrewshire Council along with transport consultants have all investigated the options and still we are no further forward in creating an alternative route whether by road or rail.
This has to be addressed, and if it is decided that a rail link is the best option, then it should be revived.
Politically-motivated intransigence should not be allowed to get in the way.
We cannot have the airport working to provide growth and bring more people to the city only for their first impression of Glasgow to be stuck in a cab or bus on a gridlocked M8 at rush hour.
