Glasgow Airport Guide

Located close to the towns of Renfrew and Paisley and eight miles west of the City Center the Glasgow International Airport is the busiest of the three major airports in Scotland. During the 1980’s the terminal size of the airport was increased by 72% at a cost of 84.71 million dollars. The augmented terminal now has room for 8.8 million passengers yearly and can accommodate over forty tour and airline operators using its two runways to fly to over ninety destinations. Further expansion is expected to add approximately sixteen million passengers.

Glasgow International Airport is situated just off the main highway of Junction 28 of the M8 highway which is about eight miles from the center of the city and, depending on the traffic and the time of day, it takes about twenty minutes to drive from the Glasgow city center to the Glasgow Airport.

Because of recent scares related to security measures drivers may no longer park outside the airport’s main terminal building. A new parking zone where passengers may be dropped off is located in the new car park which faces the main terminal building. For the first ten minutes there is no charge for parking in this area, however it’s wise to double check the cost before parking in that area because times of availability and prices may be changed without notice.

The Glasgow International Airport has two terminal buildings, the main terminal and terminal 2 or T2 which was added in 2004 to take care of the growing number of passengers. The main terminal covers three floors with the check-in desks for both international departures and domestic flights on the ground floor. For the convenience of passengers who might want to make last minute purchases before departing there are also a variety of outlet shops and a duty free shop in the first floor lounge. Passengers can also buy food and drink at bars and restaurants located through the airport.

For those arriving at the Glasgow International Airport the best way to get around is to hire a car and arriving passengers can choose from four major car rental companies located in the airport on the ground floor near the UK baggage claim area. Limousines and chauffeur driven cars are also available at the airport as well as excellent bus service which is located in front of the terminal building.
