There are links to and from the Airport either by Buses that operate from several routes, and the Glasgow Flyer that runs 24 hours from Glasgow City Centre, or by Rail, the nearest station is Gilmour Street just two miles from the Airport and easily connects with buses and taxis for the short onward journey. For passengers who wish to drive, the roads are well signposted, the Airport is just north of the M8 Motorway at Junction 28. On arrival there is the option of short and long stay car parks, or there is always the choice of park and stay offered by many hotels in the area, or perhaps Valet Parking is the answer……..
