Flight Arrivals at Glasgow Airport

Glasgow International Airport handles over 9.6 million passengers per year, and is the second largest airport in Scotland. It is also one of the major gateways to the United Kingdom. The airport is situated only 8 miles, or 13 km from central Glasgow, and is nearby many important towns and cities. Arriving passengers will find all the facilities they need at Glasgow Airport.

Glasgow Airport consists of one main terminal building and a satellite extension. The main building is referred to as Terminal 1, while its extension is T2, and these two areas are connected by a walkway. Domestic and international arrivals are handled in the main terminal, as T2 is only used for low-cost airline check-in procedures. Passengers arriving by aircraft will enter the terminal building on the ground floor. International flight passengers will need to go directly to passport control and Customs. The passport control area is clearly signposted, and there are two separate queuing areas. One queue is dedicated to the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA), British nationals and Swiss nationals, while the second queue is for all other nationalities. Passengers will need to show a passport or travel document, and all other relevant documentation to the UK Border Agency officer. Also ensure that your passport is valid and will not expire during your visit to the United Kingdom.

After you have cleared passport control, you may proceed to the baggage reclaim area to collect your belongings. The information screens will show you which carousel to use. Baggage trolleys are available in the baggage reclaim area, as well as in other areas of the terminal building. No adults or children are allowed to ride on the trolleys for safety reasons. Passengers with items to declare should go to the Customs red point. If you have nothing to declare and you are from a European Union country, your baggage will have a green-edged tag (use the blue exit), and if you are from a country outside of the European Union your baggage with have a plain white tag (use the green exit). Passengers who are transferring between two international flights may have their baggage put straight through to their final destination, with no need to collect it in between flights, however, it is still necessary to declare any items in your hand luggage.

Glasgow Airport has all the necessary facilities available for arriving passengers, including banking and currency exchange services, business services, family entertainment areas and baby changing rooms, a post office, worship rooms, internet connections, and many shopping and dining outlets.

They are open from Monday to Friday between 08:00 to 18:00, and on weekends from 09:30 to 16:00. The lost property office is located in the check-in hall on the ground floor.
