There are two direct routes to Edinburgh, one via Glasgow and the M8 is slightly
longer and is considerably busier but depending on the time of day
can be the quicker route. The second, via the A70, goes across country
and is quieter but is likely to be slower.
Prestwick Airport is the only airport in Scotland served by its own railway station.
The station is accessed directly from the airport terminal and the
journey to and from Glasgow Central Station operated by ScotRail takes
just over 40 minutes and operates half-hourly Monday to Saturday and
hourly on Sundays. The last train leaves the airport at 23:07.
The airport is served by Stagecoach Western express coach services which run to and
from Glasgow Buchanan Street Bus Station via Kilmarnock. Buses run
every hour (increasing to every 30 minutes at peak times). The service
operates 7 days a week with a journey time of 50 minutes.
Short and long-term car parking is available on the airport site. Long-term
car parking can be pre-booked by telephoning 0870 0134503. You must
