Glasgow Airport Disabled Access Guide

A guide to facilities at Glasgow Airport for disabled passengers


  • Accessible toilets and lifts throughout the airport.
  • Induction loops for amplification of announcements.
  • A dedicated assistance area located within the main check-in area.
  • Help Points throughout – located in the Drop Off areas, Coach areas, Car Parks 1, 2 and 3, the central bus stands, Long Stay Car Park 4, and in Terminal 2.

Assistance is available free of charge at Glasgow Airport, and they will assist you from your arrival (including arrival at Car Parks 1 and 2, and drop off points or bus stands), through to your plane. Similarly support is available from disembarking your plane at Glasgow through to your point of onward travel.

Although Glasgow endeavour to assist anyone requiring special assistance at the airport, if you have not requested this in advance there may well be longer waits involved. It is best to contact the airport in advance of your travel.

Once you arrive at the airport you can request assistance from any of the Help Points or once you arrive at check-in you can request assistance.

It is advisable to arrive at least 2 hours before your flight as there are some rather long walks between areas in the airport!

It is advisable to contact your airline as far in advance as possible to ensure you can get the right assistance for your journey, but a minimum of 48 hours in advance is required.

Electric mobility aids

When booking your assistance with the airline if you use an electric mobility aid, you will need to inform them of the make and model so that they can make sure that the airport can make it safe for travel.
