Glasgow Prestwick Airport customer review

The airport is very small three flights at check-in and the place becomes really crowded. Doesn't have the same choice as Glasgow and Edinburgh but for budget airlines is a gem.

Glasgow Prestwick Airport customer review

I have recently used the much underused and underated other International Airport of Glasgow at Prestwick. Although the airport is about 30miles from Glasgow the access is trouble free and reliable in the form of a train service and motorway both leading to Glasgow. It may be a bit of extra hassle getting to airport but while other airports may be suffering ice and snow it is a good bet that the runway at Prestwick will be open due to it's mild micro climate. The airport is mainly used by Ryanair and charter aircraft. The airport is under private ownership and not BAA like most other UK airports. The interior of the airport is old but it is efficient no crowds and every process from checking in to boarding is hassle free. There are bars and restaurants and even an observation balcony. All in all quite pleasant and much under utilsed by the major carriers.

Glasgow Prestwick Airport customer review

Presently enjoying a renaissance thanks to the Ryanair revolution Prestwick has become the rising star of Scotland's four major airports. When it was cast off by the British Airports Authority in 1991 following the big airlines' moving their transatlantic traffic to the more convenient pastures of Glasgow Intl. (GLA) Prestwick looked down and out. Today the airport is thriving thanks to its new found status as Glasgow's low cost hub. Prestwick is located 32 miles to the south west of Glasgow city centre and the good news is that there is a half-hourly train service which gets you there in about 40 minutes. Flash your ticket/itinerary at the ticket office and you will get half price rail travel to /from the airport's own railway station free rail travel to anywhere in Scotland during the first 6 months of a new route. Road links aren't very good as the airport is accessed via the notorious A77 to southern Glasgow although the road is at present being converted to motorway standard. What about the airport itself? Well the bad news is that not much has been invested in the 1964 vintage terminal building since the BAA sell-off. You board the plane from the tarmac - no fancy walkways here! There have been various tweaks over the years but overall the place is in need of a serious revamp. The good news is that things are slowly improving with new restaurants and bars being put in the main concourse but the airside shops and duty free are primitive. You won't complain at the prices though - although the food and drink is slightly dearer in the airport norm it's not exorbitant either. This is a nice airport overall and the choice of scheduled Ryanair flights direct rail link are without a doubt its biggest assets.
