Travel by air

Glasgow international airport (code: GLA) has reasonably good international connections and of course there are flights to/from London and Amsterdam. There is an airport bus (every 10-15 minutes?) that drives into the city and stops at major hotels and Buchanan Bus station (1 block north of Queen St train station, 5-minute walk to the University). A taxi will take about 15-20 minutes and should cost about £15.

Prestwick International Airport (code: PIK) is around 30 miles from the city centre and has its own train station with trains running to Glasgow Central Station every half hour and taking approximately 45 minutes.

On this wiki is a list and map of locations with direct service to Glasgow International Airport. Some important ones are London Heathrow (BA, BMI, etc), Amsterdam Schiphol (KLM), Newark (Continental), and Toronto (Zoom). An interesting option is to fly Iceland Air via Reykjavik where you can make a stopover and swim in the Blue Lagoon. Check EasyJet, FlyBE, and RyanAir if you come from Europe.
