Glasgow Prestwick is the only airport in Scotland with its own railway station and it is one of only three airports outside of London with a direct railway connection.

The railway station, which is owned and operated by the airport, is accessed via a covered overpass accessed from within the terminal building.

The station has two platforms with trains going south towards the town of Ayr and north towards Glasgow and onward to Edinburgh.

Trains run in both directions up to every 15 minutes at peak times. The Edinburgh service operates every couple of hours.

The journey time to Glasgow by train is approximately 45 minutes and around 2 hours to Edinburgh.

Free rail travel is available to passengers to/from anywhere in Scotland for the first six months of any new scheduled route.

After the first six months of any new route, passengers benefit from half price rail travel across Scotland with a valid boarding pass.


There are two private marinas in close proximity to the airport for passengers who wish to explore the Scottish coastline and the islands off the west coast.
