Glasgow Airport front of building

Glasgow Airport is celebrating a record start to its 50th anniversary year after welcoming 551,177 passengers through its doors in January, representing an annual increase of 13.5% and making it the airport’s busiest January on record.

International traffic grew by 17.6% due to strong demand for some of the airport’s new services to European cities such as Milan and Bucharest – both of which launched in December 2015.  Emirates, which offers a double daily service to Dubai, and Aer Lingus, which this year added capacity to Dublin, also reported particularly strong demand.

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.

Unfortunately, we are not able to grant requests for filming or taking photographs at Glasgow Airport to students.
