Road Restrictions – The Open Golf Royal Troon (15-21 July)

Passengers travelling to Glasgow Prestwick Airport between 15-21 July 2024, please allow extra time for their journey to ensure you arrive on time for your departing flight.

We would like to inform passengers about several road restrictions that will be in place around the Airport during the Open Golf that is being held at Royal Troon from 15-21 July 2024. Please be aware of the following:

These measures, along with the additional traffic due to the Open, are likely to increase congestion around the Airport.

Park and Ride Facility for the Open Golf
There are planned park and ride facilities for the Open Golf in close proximity to the airport which will add to congestion on the road network. Access to these car parks will involve using the roundabout outside the Airport’s Car Parks to then travel northbound on the A79 to the car park entrance. Further information on the park and ride, including the opening and closing times, can be viewed here: The Open Park and Ride. This will give you an indications on peak times.

Public Transport
Public transport is also expected to be busier than usual. Scotrail will have additional services running throughout the week, with trains starting earlier and an increased number of trains per hour.

Plan Ahead
During this time, please plan your journey ahead and allow additional travel time to the airport to ensure timely arrival.
