Response

I enclose the information that you requested in relation to question 1(a). We have provided an extract as it was more appropriate to extract the text within the scope of your request from the document we hold where the rest of the information is outwith the scope. This is detailed below.

Extract from briefing – First Minister meeting with AGS Board Members – 3 July 2017:

1. The airport is in the process of making changes to the road network around the airport to ease congestion. From the end April 2017, a new combined quick pick-up/drop-off area came in to operation. The new fee introduced for dropping off is £2 for 10 minutes. As with other airports which have introduced drop-off fees, we expect the initial negative reaction to be short-lived.

Reasons for not providing information

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the Scottish Government does not have the information you have requested in relation to questions 1(b), 2(a), 2(b), 3(a), 3(b), 4, 5 or 6.
