Glasgow Prestwick Airport was purchased by the Scottish Government in November 2013 to protect jobs and safeguard a strategic infrastructure asset. The airport operates as a commercial business at an arms length from the Government.
A Group Structure was put in place following the purchase of the airport. This structure includes Prestwick Aviation Holdings Limited Board, which is Chaired by Andrew Miller.
Andrew Miller was appointed in November 2014 and since coming on board he has brought together a knowledgeable group of Non-Executive Directors.
In addition to the new Non-Executive Directors, the airport has also been through a reshaping exercise that saw the creation of a new Executive team.
This team lead the day-to-day running of the airport, the delivery of a strategic plan and the implementation of this plan – with the view of returning the airport to a position of profit and long term sustainability.
This team is supported by approximately 320 staff who work across areas including business support, passenger handling, cargo, air traffic control, compliance, fire services and a number of other areas.
