Whether you’re dropping off a loved one for a trip, or picking up a friend after their holiday, there are various free and paid-for parking options available at Glasgow International Airport.
Glasgow Airport Pick Up & Drop off options
Express Pick Up & Drop Off
Glasgow Airport's Pick up & Drop-off areas are located directly outside the main terminal building in car park 2. So, you can pull up right outside, where you can touch down just long enough to unload luggage. An easy and quick option. This can be a very congested area and is only suited for a conveniently close and quick pick up or drop off.
Pick Up & Drop Off will be charged at £4 to stay for up to 10 minutes from 00:01 on Friday 4th December 2020. Drivers wishing to use parking facilities for more than 10 minutes are advised to use the Short Stay car park.
Passengers with electric vehicles will be able to access the pick-up and drop-off facility directly opposite the terminal free of charge for the first 10 minutes. Electric vehicle users must pre-register for free access for the first 10 minutes here.
A 30-minute free parking option will be available to passengers in the long-stay car park on the airport grounds, which is accessible via a 24-hour on-demand bus service.
Keen to meet your passenger in the arrivals area? Our Short Stay car parks are located just minutes away from the terminal. You can park, meet your friends or family, and help them transport their luggage back to the car.
While you’re waiting, take advantage of our free WiFi and keep an eye on flight information to find out when your passenger is due to land.
We recommend that the Short Stay car park is used for dropping off passengers who require extra assistance. Please see the section below regarding blue badge holders.
If drivers choose to stay in the Express Drop-off for longer than 10 minutes, they will pay a premium charge on exit.
Payment can be made at the forecourt exit barrier using correct change or credit/debit cards, contactless technology is also in place (there is no additional fee for using cards). A change machine is available within the shelter located on the forecourt.
