The huge space required for an international airport means that they are often constructed a good distance away from the city they are supposed to serve.

You’ll either have to hope there are good public transport links to get into the city centre, to fork out a considerable sum to fund a taxi ride.

But, according to the Telegraph, that is not an issue at Glasgow Airport, where travellers can get into the city centre in just 15 minutes.

While that is not as quick as in Birmingham (12 minutes) it is the same as Manchester, earning both cities a joint second place ranking.
