To ask the Scottish Government how much funding it has provided for Glasgow Prestwick Airport in each year since it assumed ownership.
Answered by: Keith Brown 16 November 2016
By the end of the last financial year (31st March 2016) the Scottish Government had invested £20.8 million in loan support in Glasgow Prestwick Airport. The breakdown of this investment by year is £4.5 million invested in 2013-14, £6.3 million invested in 2014-15, and £10.0 million invested in 2015-16.
We expect all loan funding will be repaid, plus interest.
