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?
We, the undersigned, ask the owners and shareholders of "Glasgow Prestwick International Airport Scotland" to re-name the said airport "The Robert Burns International, Prestwick Airport, Prestwick, Ayrshire, Scotland".
