Spending the night at the airport

Glasgow airport operates many flights and connections. As a result, it is often busy, even at night. Have headphones or earplugs ready. It's also important to note that waiting times at the airport can vary depending on flights and the season, so be prepared for any contingencies.

Where to rest: On the second floor of the Main Terminal, there is a food court with comfortable benches, as well as next to the security checkpoint.
