How early to arrive at Glasgow airport?

In general Glasgow airport advises you to take at least 2 hours for airport security. That means that you should add the time for check in procedure and the time it takes you to park the car. How much time you should add depends on if your flight is domestic or international and the Glasgow airport parking method you have chosen.

Park and Ride 

The most chosen form of parking is “Park and Ride”. Park and Ride operators are located near the airport. Because these locations are mostly not within walking distance of the airport a free shuttle is provided to take you to the airport. The transfer to the airport is usually between 10-20 minutes. Please see the listing page of the parking for information about the shuttle service.

Meet and Greet 

With meet and greet parking there is no transfer time as you’ll drive straight to the airport. When you arrive at Glasgow airport a valet employee will be waiting for you. After a short inspections and paperwork you’ll be able to go directly to the checkin counter,

International flights

Security is often more stricket when traveling internationally. Thus we advise you to take an extra hour for international flights. To ensure you’ll have enough time please be ready to go through security at least 3 hours before boarding time.
