The second busiest terminal in Scotland


glasgow international airportGlasgow airport is the second busiest terminal in Scotland, following Edinburgh, and handles over 5 million passengers every year. This international terminal is located around 6 miles from the city centre and is the eighth busiest in the United Kingdom.

GLA is owned by Heathrow Airport Holdings (formerly British Airport Authority) and was opened in 1966 after it was decided that a new international hall was required to serve the city. The other airport near Glasgow is Prestwick, located 29 miles from central Glasgow in Scotland.

starBook the Best Deals

Ownership passed to what was then the BAA in 1975 and by 1989, they unveiled a huge development plan which included extending the terminal building to create space for an international departure lounge. The terminal now has three piers and can handle a capacity of 9 million passengers every year.

Over the last couple of decades, several more changes have been made to this terminal and its surroundings. This includes cheap hotels and duty free shopping areas being constructed. Plans have been unveiled to build a new runway and it is expected that this terminal will deal with more than 24 million passengers annually by 2030.

This airfield is very accessible by road or rail as there are excellent bus routes and a shuttle service which operates every half an hour. If you are travelling to the city by train, you will arrive at the Paisley Gilmour Street station which is just over a mile from the departure and arrival hall and directly accessible by jumping on the McGill 757 bus from the city centre.

Getting there by car is easy as the M8 goes directly past the Glasgow terminal and there are numerous motorways in the region offering access to this road. There are thousands of long stay parking spaces available, however if you are simply waiting there to pick someone up, car parks 1 and 2 are the best places to go for cheap short stay parking.

There is plenty of overnight accommodation in the area which will situate you on the route of the shuttle service, should you need to arrive the day before your departure. Guest rooms to let can be acquired for as little as 20 pounds and will provide you with all you need before jetting off. Glaswegians are very friendly and a stay at a well priced bed and breakfast or affordable hotel (motel) will enlighten this fact with impeccable style. Many establishments provide free Wifi and car parking. Some have a frequent shuttle transport service. Stay safe and enjoy your trip.
