Glasgow Prestwick Airport has a long track record of having favourable weather conditions – making it one of the most reliable airports in the United Kingdom.
It is famously referred to as the ‘fog free airport’.
Met office data shows that the average annual incidence of cloud base below 1500 ft is at 10.4%.
Prestwick is afforded protection by peripheral land masses and high ground on four quadrants, which strips out moisture at low levels.
This reliability has led to Glasgow Prestwick Airport regularly being utilised as a key diversion airport within the UK.
