More than seven million passengers pass through the doors of Glasgow Airport each year, making it the second busiest airport in Scotland and one of the 10 busiest in the UK.
Located in Paisley, in Renfrewshire, the airport is just 10 miles from central Glasgow. The airport’s location, just off the M8, and a handful of airport-city transport connections make getting away a doddle.
Passengers can make use of bus services from the city centre or arrive by train at nearby Paisley Gilmour Street, which is connected to the airport by the 757 bus service.
If you plan to drive and park, book your space in advance to save money on the drive-up cost.
The usual array of airside opportunities for shopping and dining are all present at Glasgow Airport.
Families travelling with young children (aged two to six) can make use of the free soft play area in departures, while puzzle tables at a handful of spots help to while away the time.
The Upperdeck Lounge is the perfect place to relax ahead of flights from Glasgow to Dubai. Children are also welcome in the lounge, where there’s a play area and games consoles to help banish the boredom.
Which terminal do flights to Dubai usually fly from?
There are two terminals at Glasgow Airport: the main departure terminal T1, and T2 – a small terminal for some low-cost carriers. Flights to Dubai from Glasgow take off from T1.
Don’t waste a moment after touching down at Dubai International Airport (DXB).
Private hotel transfers are ideal, especially for first-time visitors to Dubai. If your hotel doesn’t offer one, or you want to go it alone, use taxis, the Dubai Metro or a local bus service to reach your final destination. Taxis are more expensive than public transport options, but they will take you and your luggage door to door. If you plan to use the bus, buy a Nol card (a pass that you can use on all forms of public transport) in advance, as the drivers don’t accept cash.
Car hire in Dubai is another excellent option. Pre-book before you travel for cheap rates and then simply collect upon arrival. There’s more information on our Dubai car hire page.
The hippest destination in the Middle East: dazzling, electrifying, opulent Dubai is the dream ticket. It has more multi-starred hotels than you could shake a gold iPad at (incidentally, an extra at the world’s first seven-star hotel – Dubai’s Burj Al Arab); there’s designer shopping at every turn, especially in the Dubai Mall – one of the world’s largest, of course; and a clutch of attractions that range from religious and traditional to wild and ostentatious.
Spend your days on the golden sands of Dubai’s shoreline or spend your money on gold in the old-style souks. Get wet at the Wild Wadi Water Park with the kids or chill out on the indoor ski slopes of Ski Dubai. Scale the heights of Burj Khalifa or come down to earth with a reverential tour of the Jumeirah Mosque.
One thing is for sure, whether it’s a luxury short break for two, a budget group getaway or a family holiday in the sun, Dubai has the power to captivate even the most seasoned of travellers. When will you go?
