Glasgow Prestwick Reviews

Glasgow Prestwick Airport (Scottish Gaelic: Port-adhair Ghlaschu Phreastabhaig) (IATA: PIK, ICAO: EGPK) is Glasgow’s second airport.

Glasgow Prestwick Airport also serves the Greater Glasgow urban area, situated 1 NM (1.9 km; 1.2 mi) Northeast of the town of Prestwick in South Ayrshire and 32 mi from the city centre of Glasgow.

In physical terms, Prestwick is Scotland’s largest commercial airfield, although in passenger traffic terms it sits in fourth place after Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International, and Aberdeen Airport. Passenger traffic peaked in 2007 following ten years of rapid growth, driven in part by the boom in no-frills airlines, especially from Ryanair which uses the airport as an operating base. There has been a significant reduction in passenger traffic with just under 1.1 million passengers passing through the airport in 2012, from a peak of more than 2.4 million in 2007
