Hi I’m Dan with Holiday Extras and in this video we’ll be showing you travel better through Glasgow Airport.
Coming up we’re covering departures, security, shops, facilities, arrivals and telling you some of our top tips along the way.
But first, how to get here?
Glasgow Airport is nine and a half miles from the city center and within easy reach by car, bus or train.
The nearest train station is Paisley Gilmour Street, which is about a mile south of the airport. From there you must catch the public bus or take a taxi to the terminal.
The Glasgow Airport Express is the official service that runs from the city centre. A single journey costs £7.50 and takes 15 minutes.
However the best way to get to get here is by car as it’s just off the M8 . It’s junction 28 from the East and junction 29 from the West.
If you do choose to drive to the airport then we have plenty of options to help you out with parking. You can park on-site within walking distance of the terminal or you can save some money and park off-site just a short bus ride away.
And if you have a lift it now costs £2 to be dropped off at Glasgow airport.
And one last tip before we move on. If your flight is in the early hours of the morning you can always stay in an airport hotel. They’re really convenient, and some are even within walking distance.
We’ve got loads of videos about the way we can help you at Glasgow airport, and we’ll link in the description below. And of course you can go to HolidayExtras.com for more information.
There are two departure terminals with check in desks at Terminal 2 for Air Transat, Jet2, Ryanair and Thomas Cook. All other airlines can be found here in the main terminal.
If you need to check in or drop off checked baggage, then there are screens directing you to each airline’s check in desk right in front of the entrance to the main terminal.
Each airline closes its bag drop at different times, so make sure you check your airline’s website to ensure you arrive in plenty of time.
Once you’re done then we recommend going straight through security, there’s far more seating and food options once you get airside.
Security at Glasgow is much like other UK airports, here’s a quick breakdown of everything you need to remember;
Liquids – Containers must not be over 100ml, and all your liquids must fit inside one of the supplied bags. 20cm by 20cm, and 1litre in volume.
Items such as knives and scissors are not allowed.
Take a tray and use it for your bag, phones, tablets, and laptops. Wallets, headphones, keys, belts, coat and anything else metallic. Such as jewelry or watches,.
And the last thing you need to know about security is that it only takes around 10mins.
