To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-03811 by Keith Brown on 16 November 2016, how much funding it expects to provide for Glasgow Prestwick Airport in (a) 2016-17, (b) 2017-18 and (c) future years.
Answered by: Keith Brown 27 January 2017
The budget for 2016-17 approves loan support of £9.3 million for Glasgow Prestwick Airport. The draft budget for 2017-18 allocates loan support of £9.4 million.
We plan to approve the amount of loan funding required in future years through the approval of the airport’s business plan for that year.
