New Zealand-based airport operator Infratil has posted figures showing that Glasgow Prestwick Airport generated earnings of £3.78 million ($6.95 million) in the year to 31 March, a drop of 17% on the previous total.

Infratil, which also operates Wellington Airport in New Zealand, states that the Scottish airport – which is used by Ryanair and other budget airlines as an alternative to Glasgow International – handled just under 2.2 million passengers.

Aeronautical income for Glasgow Prestwick, which is wholly-owned by Infratil, amounted to £13.3 million, a slight rise on the previous year, although the increase in the airport’s aeronautical costs was greater.
