Terminal Information – Departing
From Glasgow-International: Glasgow's main airport only has one terminal, but the departure lounge has a great range of shops and places to eat. All of the usual airport shops are there, such as WHSmith and Boots, but there's also a good range of high street shops too. You don't need to fly on an empty stomach: whether you're in the mood for a beer and a burger or a coffee and a sandwich you'll find something to suit your tastes. The Upper Deck Airport Lounge is perfect if you want a little extra luxury, while kids can blow off some steam in the soft-play area. There's also 30 minutes of free Wi-Fi throughout the terminal.
From Glasgow-Prestwick: With only two shops, one bar, and one restaurant, you would be forgiven for thinking that this Ryanair hub is a boring airport. Actually, it's the only place in the UK ever visited by Elvis Presley. There's a plaque commemorating his short stopover, and the airport bar has been named after the King in tribute. Passengers can also enjoy two hours of free Wi-Fi, and if you're at the airport with kids they'll enjoy the Play Zone.

What to expect in Malaga

Friendly words like hola (hello), adios (goodbye), por favor (please) and gracias (thank you) can make a big difference.
