Plane Stupid brands Glasgow Airport Terminal 2 as unethical
Airport. Giant letters read “T2 closed” and “Closed for Ethical Rethink”, pointing
to the increasingly struggling airport.
It was closed over the winter as a cost saving measure after passenger numbers
fell by 11.3% to 7.2 million. Glasgow airport operates a huge number of short
haul and domestic flights.
and the airport’s emissions have also reduced from the 618,539 tonnes of Co2 it
emitted in 2008 (although unsurprisingly BAA won’t tell us by how much). This
trend must continue if we’re to meet our emissions targets, or the “world’s greatest Climate Change Bill” (copyright Scottish Parliament) will become the world’s biggest embarrassment.
