Getting to and from the airport

Flights departing from London

It comes as no surprise that many people want to visit London. The pulsating city is host to five main international airports, these being: Heathrow, Gatwick, London City, Stansted and Luton. Gatwick Airport is the second busiest and largest airport after the impressive Heathrow Airport. Gatwick has two terminals: North and South, respectively. While eagerly waiting for your chance to mingle with the Scottish in Glasgow, flights from London to Glasgow can be found at the North terminal. While you wait, you could grab a cup of coffee at any of the restaurants, or you could take advantage of the free Wi-Fi service on offer.

Getting to London airport

Located further afield in West Sussex, Gatwick Airport is approximately 45km from central London. Catch the Gatwick Express as it is the most convenient mode of transport. It's not necessarily cheap, but convenience supersedes all else. Trains come in intervals of 15 minutes, so you don't have to worry about potentially missing London Glasgow flights which you will catch in time. Alternatively, you can take the National Express coaches from Victoria Coach Station in Central London. Even though the travel time for these coaches is longer than with the Express trains, if taken in good time, there should be no worries about frantically rushing to the airport. Taxis are another mode of transport to use.

Arriving to Glasgow

Glasgow is a port city of Scotland and is the largest of the country's cities. Start your adventure by touring the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. Delve into the beauty of 20th century eclectic art collections and historical collections that define Glasgow. What better way to learn about a city than knowing its roots? Of course you could just take a tour of the city in the Hop-On Hop-Off tour buses that will give you a spectacular view of Glasgow. Part of being in a different city is in mingling with the locals. Do that by going to Buchanan Street, which is defined by its diversity. From the shops to the restaurants, what is there not to love?

How to get to the city centre

Flights to Glasgow from London touch down at Glasgow Airport. The airport is approximately 11km to the west of Central Glasgow. You can get to the city centre from the airport using official Glasgow Airport taxis. These are located at the front of the main terminal buildings. They operate 24 hours, so no worries about not catching one when you land. Alternatively, catch a bus from the airport to the main station at Buchanan Street. A train is also an option.

I have been an aeroplane traveller for over 50 years using so many different airlines. Flybe’s ground and air staff operate on old fashioned values and customer service making the journeys a pleasure instead of a chore. Cannot fault Flybe in any category. Top notch service.
