AN airline is calling for an apology from Glasgow airport after their staff were thrown out for refusing to strip before a flight.

Management at the airport acted after the Ryanair staff refused to disrobe before being allowed to enter the terminal ahead of their flight to Belfast.

The staff, who had been promoting flights at Glasgow Prestwick, were travelling from Glasgow International to Belfast when they were instructed to leave the terminal and not allowed re-enter until they removed their promotional t-shirts – which advised passengers of Ryanair’s low cost flights from Glasgow Prestwick.

Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said: “BAA Glasgow airport are clearly feeling the pressure as they demanded young Ryanair staff remove their promotional gear before being allowed to even enter Glasgow International.  Ryanair staff, who had been promoting Ryanair’s low fares at Glasgow Prestwick, before travelling to Belfast with high fares easyjet, refused demands to strip off and were asked to leave immediately.

“Ryanair urges passengers to book their flights with Ryanair from Glasgow Prestwick where the only thing that we strip is our fares.”
