Petition Tag - prestwick airport
Circa 1992 Prestwick Airport was sold to a group of local investors, who by running the airport as a multi skilled operation turned the airport around and brought millions of visitors to Scotland and the Ayrshire region.
It is time that the same happened again, with a vibrant team brought into motivate the staff, energise the airport and bring back growth.
The Welsh Assembly has bought Cardiff Airport to ensure its long term future and provide profits for the public purse. It is time Holyrood worked either on its own or with investors to change ownership NOW!
Only the public voices kept prestwick flying in 1992- Help make sure it happens again in 2012!
The 250th anniversary of Robert Burns' birth it seemed the perfect time to change the name of "Glasgow Prestwick International Airport" in Scotland to "The Robert Burns International, Prestwick Airport".
The airport's position should be known internationally, as it is situated near Robert Burns' birth place, in what is known as Burns Country; in the south west of Scotland.
The airport sits about halfway between Glasgow and Turnberry (where the Open golf tournament is was held in 2009). The owners say that the word Glasgow is included so that businesses know where abouts in Scotland the airport is situated. In other words no-one knows where Burns Country is situated. Then isn't it time people did know where Burns Country is?
