Madonna’s team made use of Prestwick Airport

Pop queen Madonna sent her travelling circus through PRESTWICK this week.

Madge used the town’s airport to fly her huge stage set back to America following a European tour.

The Like A Prayer singer, who performed in Glasgow on Sunday night, had 285 tonnes of cargo ferried down the M77.

And three giant jets were loaded with 27 truckloads of equipment before leaving for Chicago.

It is understood to be one of the largest ever cargo jobs undertaken by the airport.

A spokesman confirmed: “This was a huge job for us and our employees worked flat out to ensure it was a success.

“Glasgow Prestwick Airport is in a unique position in Scotland to be able to manage cargo jobs of this scale and we are one of very few airports in the UK with these capabilities.

“It was an extremely busy few days we had handling for a number of our regular cargo customer airlines and we also handled additional passenger flights on the run up to Christmas.

“Everyone at the airport pulled together to ensure that we maintained excellent customer service and we successfully saw off all flights safely and on time.

“We hope to secure more major jobs like this in the future and we are continuing to build relationships to generate regular business across all of our aviation services.”
