It's also worth noting that there are two airports in Glasgow, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport, with the Prestwick site tending to offer lower-cost but less frequent flights.

It's typically recommended that you arrive at the airport at least two hours before your departure time if you're embarking on a domestic flight. Even so, you should make sure to check that your chosen airline offers an online check-in option. With an online check-in, you can save a lot of time at the airport and opt for relaxation or a quick bite to eat rather than stressing in queues before your flight.

To make your holiday plan easier, book a hotel or flight + hotel in London or book a hotel or flight + hotel in Glasgow if you have an early flight, a stepover or multi-city flight. If you book your flight + hotel together you can save up to 40% when compared to booking separately and all that's left for you to do is relax and enjoy your trip!

Best airlines for Glasgow to London

As some of the largest cities in the UK, with vast public transport networks supporting the infrastructure, direct flights to London from Glasgow run very regularly. Here are the most popular airlines flying from Glasgow to London, as well as their arrival airports:


easyJet and Ryanair will be your top choices if you’re looking to travel on a budget, as these low-cost airlines offer the cheapest airfares and if you’re looking for just a short trip, you won’t need to worry about their sometimes substantial fees for adding larger cabin baggage or hold luggage.

But if you’ve got a bit more cash to splash you might opt for a British Airways or Iberia flight. Both owned by IAG, these two offer something a little more upmarket so you can arrive in London in style.

Airports in Glasgow

As mentioned earlier, there are two airports to choose from in Glasgow.


The first is Glasgow Airport, also known as Glasgow International Airport, which boasts the advantage of direct motorway access. As Glasgow’s main airport, the site has excellent public transport links from all domestic locations and offers regular, consistent flights to London. Buses to the airport run every 12 minutes from Glasgow central station.

Meanwhile, if you're travelling via car, simply exit the M8 at Junction 28 when travelling from the East, or Junction 29 when travelling from the West. The airport offers long-stay, short-stay, and fast-track parking.


The second option is Glasgow Prestwick Airport, which is renowned as a much smaller site. Glasgow Prestwick is mainly known for managing diversions, which is why it's regarded as ‘Britain’s only fog-free airport’.

Glasgow Prestwick Airport offers several car and coach parks and is accessible by car, bus and train. There's a direct service to the airport by bus via the Stagecoach Western X77 Express Service from Glasgow Buchanan Street Station. Not only this but the airport is also served by its own railway station with 45-minute trains running from Glasgow Central Station. As an additional bonus, all passengers with booked flights can receive a 50% discount on the standard fare to and from the airport, which is a nice little touch.

What are the best times to fly to London?

Since the UK has a temperate climate, if you're looking to make the most of blooming parks, the best time to visit London is between March and May. Besides the weather potentially being on your side, another advantage to booking a trip in the spring months is that April is regarded as one of the cheapest times to travel to London.

It's commonly known that August offers the brightest sun and lowest chances of rainfall, but September also typically offers great weather and the added bonus of cheaper ticket prices. Of course, fare prices are likely to peak in winter, when the Christmas festivities are in full swing with the annual Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park and families make the pilgrimage to spend the holidays together.

Yet the sleepy month of January may offer slightly cheaper fares for those who want to experience London in winter glory, but save a few pennies in the process.

Regardless of when you're planning to travel, if you want to secure the best deals possible, it's recommended that you book at least six months in advance. Alternatively, look out for tickets with the tags ‘cheapest’ or ‘last minute’ on Opodo's website to secure lower-cost flights close to your departure date.

Nowhere near enough seating. people were sat on the floor and in the corridors and many were sitting in the cafes long after they finished eating just to get a seat which stopped others eating. There are not enough places to eat for the volume of people. Security staff were great but LGW has the worst security queues in the UK. It is my least favourite airport in the UK.
