How did Glasgow Airport rank?

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.

In other rankings, London City Airport was named the best in Britain, with praise for the perks for customers, the quality of its destinations, and its proximity to the centre of London.

Gatwick, Heathrow and Newcastle rounded off the top four, while Leeds/Bradford and Bristol finished bottom of the pile.
