Cheap Flights to Glasgow International

Glasgow International overview

Glasgow International Airport (GLA) is located 13km (8 miles) southwest of Glasgow's city centre. It is the second-busiest airport in Scotland and one of the busiest in the UK with more than six million passengers using it each year. Almost 30 airlines are based there, a mix of traditional, budget and charter carriers.

The terminal has three piers: West (international), Central (domestic) and East (low-cost, Ireland and Scottish islands). A “Skyhub” was created in 2007, connecting the main terminal and terminal two, which created space for an extended duty-free shopping area.

The airport has seen some improvements in recent years and runs well, with security moving at a reasonable pace and shopping and dining options on the rise. Despite it being an international facility, the airport is still on the small side, so pack a book or charge your mobile if you expect to have a lot of time on your hands.
