Filming and photography at Glasgow Airport

We will do our very best to accommodate your requests. However, filming at a busy international airport such as Glasgow provides logistical and security challenges and there will be times when we will be unable to facilitate any non-essential filming and photography requests.

Please bear in mind that all filming and photography within Glasgow Airport requires a permit so your request must be made at least two working days before the required date. There are exceptions but if you want to guarantee that you meet your deadlines, please contact us well in advance.
