That this House welcomes Glasgow Airport on becoming the first Scottish airport to welcome the A380, the world's largest commercial aircraft; notes that Emirates operated the one-off A380 flight to celebrate the tenth anniversary of its Glasgow to Dubai service which has carried over 2.4 million passengers since its launch on 10 April 2004; recognises this was a significant milestone in Scottish aviation history; believes the A380 service was yet another example of Emirates' commitment to Scotland following the introduction of a second daily flight in 2012; and welcomes the important contribution of Glasgow Airport to the economic success of Renfrewshire and Scotland.
