About Glasgow Prestwick Airport

Glasgow Prestwick Airport (Prestwick) runs 24/7 cargo operations and has no restrictions or curfews on inbound or outbound flights, offering a fully in-house service, from cargo handling to aircraft fueling.

Our uncongested air and ground paths mean less taxiing, less vectoring, and fewer emissions, and with no slot or gate constraints, we are a natural choice for e-commerce flights.

We average a two hour turn around for a wide-bodied freighter aircraft after arrival, and can deliver a B747 full palletised offload onto trucks to arrive in Manchester within six hours of landing.

We have over 12,000 square meters of warehouse space opening onto cargo apron, new cold storage facilities with a controlled range of -30C to +25C and our dedicated live animal team and on-site stables mean that we can welcome horses.

Our warehouse screening options, which include a new Rapiscan X-ray machine with 7.5mm steel penetration, as well as the option to work with canines, allow us to handle of all types of cargo, including seven classes of Dangerous Goods, with specialised handling for Class1, as well as oversized cargo for the oil and gas, aerospace, and live touring industries.

Prestwick boasts the longest commercial runway north of Manchester, which can accommodate the AN124, and offers direct links to the UK’s motorway network, as well as its own cargo railway siding, and easy access to nearby ferry services to Ireland.

Its west of Scotland location on the Great Circle route, between the Middle East and the USA, makes Prestwick an effective bedrock of any transportation plan.
