Glasgow Airport, also unofficially Glasgow International Airport (IATA: GLA), formerly Abbotsinch Airport, is an international airport in Scotland, located 8.6 nautical miles (15.9 km; 9.9 mi) west of Glasgow city center. In 2016, the airport handled nearly 9.4 million passengers, a 7% annual increase, making it the second-busiest in Scotland, after Edinburgh Airport, and the eighth-busiest airport in the United Kingdom. It is the primary airport serving the west of Scotland and is the principal transatlantic and direct long-haul entry airport into Scotland.
The airport is owned and operated by AGS Airports which also owns and operates Aberdeen and Southampton Airports. It was previously owned and operated by Heathrow Airport Holdings (formerly known as BAA). The airport’s largest tenants are British Airways and Loganair (currently franchising using Flybe), the latter using it as a hub. Other major airlines using GLA as a base include EasyJet, Jet2, Ryanair, Thomas Cook Airlines and Thomson Airways.
Glasgow Airport was opened in 1966 and originally flights only operated to other places in the United Kingdom and Europe. Glasgow Airport began to offer flights to other places around the world, flights which previously used Glasgow Prestwick Airport, which was subsequently relegated as the city’s secondary airport catering for low-cost airlines, freight and charter operators.
