Glasgow International Airport (Scottish Gaelic: Port-adhair Eadar-nàiseanta Ghlaschu) (IATA: GLA, ICAO: EGPF) (formerly Glasgow Abbotsinch Airport) is located 6 NM (11 km; 6.9 mi) west of Glasgow city centre, near the towns of Paisley and Renfrew in Renfrewshire.


In 2008 the airport handled 8,178,891 passengers, a 7.0% annual reduction, making it the 2nd busiest in Scotland, and eighth busiest airport in the United Kingdom. In 2009, the airport handled approximately 7.255 million passengers. It was the first airport in Scotland to handle over one million passengers in one month, in July 2004.


There are plans for expansion of the airport, with passenger numbers expected to reach over 24 million per annum by 2030.

The airport is owned and operated by BAA, which also owns and operates five other UK airports, and is itself owned by ADI Limited, an international consortium, which includes Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec and GIC Special Investments, that is led by the Spanish Ferrovial Group.
