Getting to Glasgow Airport
Glasgow Airport is the only airport in Scotland with direct motorway access, making it extremely easy and simple to get to. We advise beginning your journey with plenty of time to spare, whether you’re driving, using public transport, or using a local taxi company. This will give you the peace of mind to know that you’ll be checking in on time so you can begin your journey stress-free.
You can find more info and directions here.

Have you checked-in online? If so, don’t forget to print off your boarding pass before heading to the airport. Passengers travelling with just hand luggage can head straight to airport security and begin their duty-free shopping experience. If you’re travelling with hold luggage, you will need to check-in your bags at the appropriate check-in desk for your destination.
Remember – even if your flight has a delay, you must still arrive at the airport and check-in at the original allocated time; unless your airline has contacted you directly stating otherwise.
Take a look at the flight info section for flight updates and subscribe to alerts to receive the most up-do-date information.
