Glasgow Airport is one of Scotland’s biggest travel hubs with connections to many destinations around the world, so it’s easy to see why they have a selection of parking options that will suit any vehicle. To help you find the right parking package for you, JetParks have created this guide full of helpful hints and tips.
Pick-up & Drop-off at Glasgow Airport
Glasgow Airport has a fantastic drop-off section with an undercover walkway to the terminal door, however, many visitors incur heavy charges by staying in the drop-off area for longer than 10 minutes. If you want to avoid these charges then it’s a good idea to book a short-stay parking space. Alternatively, Glasgow Airport allows visitors to pick-up and drop-off in the long-stay carparks for 30 minutes completely free of charge.
With three short-stay parking areas at Glasgow Airport, you’ll be able to find many different options to suit your vehicle, including both inside and outdoor parking. Each of the short-stay carparks is close to the airport and regularly patrolled by airport security. If you’re planning on staying for longer than 24 hours you should consider booking long-stay parking.
With regular shuttle buses to and from the terminal doors, the long-stay carparks at Glasgow Airport are a great option for visitors who are planning to leave their vehicle while they’re on holiday. Each carpark is regularly patrolled to ensure the safety of your vehicle.
Glasgow Airport has 2 international terminals, Terminal One and Terminal Two. Both terminals are close together, so you can use any parking option no matter where you’re flying, although it’s still worth knowing where you’re flying from to plan where you want to be in the carpark.

Excellent first time I've used them and by far the most professional airport parking I have used. Friendly staff in office and drivers, the drivers couldn't do anymore for us. 5 stars!
