Gateway to Glasgow and Scotland

AdvantagesLocal, dont need to fly from English airports. Good road connections

DisadvantagesNo direct rail link

"Glasgow International Airport ( or Abbotsinch for those of us with longer memories ) is visible from the M8 motorway about 8 miles out of Glasgow and a mile or so from Paisley. So is very accessible to reach by car. It is my local airport and I have flown from here many a time on both international and domestic flights. One thing to confirm, if you are using a low cost airline, is which Glasgow Airport you are going to. There is another - Glasgow ..." Read review

The business option

AdvantagesGood links with airlines

DisadvantagesLocal transport facilities

"Its a good airport but with one major drawback - the links into the city centre of Glasgow. If you're in a hurry to get into the centre of town and can't afford a cab then forget it. I have travelled to Glasgow on business on a number of occasions and like it. It is a vibrant city with lots to do when works finished.

Scotlands gateway to the world

Advantagesinternational, national and regional flights

Disadvantagesno direct rail link

"...hurry to proceed. On arriving in Glasgow, directions are clearly marked for luggage collecton, and normally by the time you have walked from the aircraft the first items are ready to be collected from the well signposted carousels. Sadly, the exits are not very well designed and are slightly offset from the taxi rank. However, I now use the direct bus service and although this means waiting in the cold centre island, at least it does provide basic ..." Read review

Needs to brush up its act

AdvantagesClose to City Centre

DisadvantagesCan take ages into the city centre

"Glasgow is Scotland's busiest airport and at times it seems like it can't cope or perhaps doesn't appear interested in coping. There are a good number of destinations although too many through hub airports like Heathrow. More direct services would be useful. It is handy for Glasgow City outside peak traffic times but it can be frustrating waiting in peak hour traffic when trying to get into the city. A train link like they have from Glasgow's other ..."
