Terminal Information – Departing

Glasgow Airport has one terminal with everything you need to get your trip off to a good start. Kids can blow off some steam in the soft play area, while social media addicts can make the most of the 30 minutes free Wi-Fi. There's a good range of shops in the departure lounge. Pick up some electronic goods at Maplin, grab a souvenir for your favourite footie fan from the Celtic store, or treat yourself to a new outfit at The Fashion Place. There are also plenty of places to eat, drink and be merry. Enjoy a tasty sandwich at EAT, grab a beer and a burger at The Sandpiper, or have an Italian-American feast at Frankie & Benny's. If you want a little bit of extra luxury you can book into the UpperDeck lounge, where you can enjoy complimentary snacks and drinks. Try not to drink too heavily: flight staff have the right to refuse service to drunk and disorderly people.

Terminal Information – Arriving

Flights from Glasgow generally land at Terminal 3. Once you come through arrivals you will need to head to the airport travel hub, The Station. This is where public transport (including buses, trams and trains) leave for Manchester city centre. There are also some buses and trains to other parts of the North West. If you prefer to avoid public transport, you'll find the taxi rank just outside Terminal 3. It should cost you around £17.50* for the journey into the city centre. Price will depend on how far you're going. There's a tariff list which you can check to get a good estimate. It's also possible to hire a car at Manchester Airport: compare prices now with Skyscanner.
