History

The terminal was opened by Loch Lomond Seaplanes, in August 2007, to allow the first commercial seaplane service in nearly 50 years[1] to start from the city centre, initially from Glasgow to Oban, flying from the River Clyde Pacific Quay area. A service to Tobermory on the Isle of Mull operated in 2008.

Loch Lomond Seaplanes offer charter services from the terminal - future plans include scheduled services. These would include Arran, Bute, and potentially intercity services between Glasgow and Edinburgh.[2]
