Which airlines travel from London to Glasgow?

Most of the Glasgow flights are shared between two airlines, easyJet and British Airways, with the latter sometimes operated by BA CityFlyer. The main distinguishing feature between the two airlines is that easyJet is a budget operator offering much cheaper tickets on every flight. Given that these are also the slightly quicker flights, they’re the most popular, so keep your eyes on Omio to book your tickets as soon as they appear and have them delivered directly to your mobile device. The other difference between the flights is that they depart from different airports. British Airways takes off from Heathrow, London City and Gatwick, while easyJet operates from Luton, Stansted and Gatwick. They’re all direct flights, so you won’t be required to make any plane changes or stopovers en route.

easyJet flights from London to Glasgow

They leave about eight times a day, and you can book flights out of Gatwick, Luton Airport or London City Airport. You’ll be able to catch them from early in the morning till mid-evening, and all planes fly direct. As a budget airline, easyJet also offers the cheapest air tickets to Glasgow from London, often saving up to 75% of the price of flights on BA. This applies no matter which airport you book to fly from.

British Airways flights from London to Glasgow

British Airways to Glasgow flights take from around 1h 20min to about 1h 35min, so the flying time is very similar to that of easyJet. BA airplanes leave also leave from early morning till mid-evening, and they’re the first and last flights servicing this route. BA CityFlyer operates some of them on behalf of BA, but this won’t affect your individual travel experience at all. These are also all direct flights between the cities, and they leave around nine times a day from Heathrow, Gatwick and London City Airport.

Flight London to Glasgow: Services on Board

British Airways is well-known for its world-class on-board services and facilities. You can choose to fly Economy, Premium Economy, Business class or First class. On a short flight like this Economy class will do nicely, unless you really want to spoil yourself. This is part of the airline’s Euro Traveller experience, offering complimentary refreshments, leather seats with moveable head-rests and power sockets.

Priority boarding is available for families with young children and free carriage push cars are provided. Limited mobility and hidden disability assistance is thorough and while you can’t travel with a pet or a bicycle in the cabin, you can take your bike with you in a carrier as hold luggage, and make arrangements for animal travel, either on the same flight or a separate one. You can typically take one hold luggage item limited to 50 lbs (23 kg) and a carry-on item weighing up to 18 lbs (8 kg).

easyJet only has a single class, as it’s a budget airline, which is its major drawcard on this route. You can arrange for the airline’s Special Assistance in advance and on-board facilities include snacks and sweets, sandwiches, hot and cold drinks, and alcohol available for purchase. You can buy up to three luggage “bags”, in easyJet parlance, each of which allows you to take a single hold item weighing up to 70.7 lbs (32 kg). If your foldable bicycle fits the required parameters, you can take that as one of your “bags”. You can also take a small cabin item without a weight limit, as long as you can carry it on your own. Unfortunately you won’t be able to travel with any pets.

How to find cheap flight tickets from London to Glasgow?

The easiest way to find cheap flight tickets to Glasgow from London is to book with easyJet. You can save a large amount if you do, and on a short-haul flight like this you can forego most of the on-board facilities that aren’t available on a budget airline, in any case.

You can also score cheaper tickets on this route by using the Omio timetable to book a good few months in advance – airlines often offer early-bird specials. By the same token, you can take advantage of last-minute specials if you stay flexible about the time and date on which you travel. One again, keep an eye on Omio for these. In the case of a short flight like this you won’t be able to save by choosing a longer flight with more stopovers, but keep that in mind in general when you’re planning other trips.

To Glasgow by plane—travel tips

Glasgow often plays second fiddle to Edinburgh when it comes to tourist allure, but it has just as many attractions. Glasgow Cathedral is one of the most significant in Scotland, built in the 12th century. The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum isn’t as well-known as many others in the UK, but this belies its fine collection of Scottish and European paintings, by artists like Van Gogh and Salvador Dali.

For shopping, coffee shops, artisanal bistros and pubs, head to the Merchant District and George Square. Another uniquely Glaswegian attraction is its Necropolis, a fascinating Victorian garden graveyard with finely sculpted tombstones.

To explore a tall ship from bygone days, visit the Riverside Museum. If you’re looking for something more modern, or you’re travelling with kids, the Glasgow Science Centre has fascinating interactive exhibits and an iMAX theatre. When it comes to natural attractions, Glasgow Botanic Gardens in the grounds of Kibble Palace has one of the largest glasshouses in the UK, built in 1873.
