Glasgow International Airport (Scottish Gaelic: Port-adhair Eadar-nàiseanta Ghlaschu) (IATA: GLA, ICAO: EGPF) (formerly Glasgow Abbotsinch Airport)
is an international airport in Scotland, located 6 nautical miles (11 km; 6.9 mi) west of Glasgow city centre, near the towns of Paisley and Renfrew
in Renfrewshire. In 2012 the airport handled over 7.1 million passengers, a 4.0% annual increase, making it the second busiest in Scotland, after Edinburgh
Airport, and the eighth busiest airport in the United Kingdom. It is the primary airport serving the Greater Glasgow conurbation and is also the principal
transatlantic and direct longhaul entry airport into Scotland.
Glasgow International Airport should not be confused with Glasgow Prestwick Airport, which was subsequently relegated as the city's secondary airport catering
for low cost airlines and charter operators.
