Glasgow (GLA) Airport

Glasgow GLA Airport Overview

Glasgow International Airport GLA is Scotland's leading long-haul airport, and is one of two airports serving the greater Glasgow area. (A secondary Airport, the Glasgow Prestwick Airport, is a low-cost hub for budget airlines with direct rail link to Central Glasgow.) As of the end of January 2014 - Heathrow Airport Holdings has handed over its ownership of GLA to the new consortium Ferrovial/ Macquarie - which will continue to further develop GLA . 
In fall 2014 a passenger survey voted UK Airport as 'best in UK'.

GLA Airport is located near the towns of Paisley and Renfrew in Renfrewshire, and 13 km west of the Glasgow's city center, in Scotland, U.K. The Airport, owned and operated by BAA, can be reached from the adjoining M8 mortorway at Junction 28 within about 20 minute (Postcode PA3 2SW). The Airport is Scotland's long-haul, and second-busiest, airport after Edinburgh.

With one runway and an estimated  yearly passenger count of 7.5M, Glasgow International Airport is hub for Loganair, and is served by many domestic and international airlines offering direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe.  In October 2013 Ryanair officially launched a new base at GLA.

The on-Airport Holiday Inn Hotel is on Caledonie Way, within easy walking distance from the terminal.

The passenger terminal complex at Glasgow Airport consists of two terminals - T1 & T2. 

Present and future Airport developments:  Due to Ryanair & easyJet service expansions, a 2-level, 1,400 meter extension at one of the 3  piers is currently under construction and should be completed by Spring 2015.  The East Pier extension will add a new gate room for departures.
