UK August 18, 2006....Flyglobespan is to offer the first scheduled flights from Glasgow Airport to Las Vegas and Barbados from early next year.

The airline has announced that it will fly to Las Vegas twice a week (Mondays and Fridays between February 2 and April 16) from £269 including taxes.

The airline will start its Sunday-only Barbados service on January 21. It will continue until April 15. One-way tickets will start at £239 including taxes.

“These are two more exciting routes for Flyglobespan,” said Tom Dalrymple, the airline’s chairman.

“The Caribbean is an ideal winter sun destination and I am sure Scottish holidaymakers will appreciate the fact that they can now fly direct from Glasgow every Sunday.
