Flying Between Glasgow and Spain

There is a plethora of direct air services that link Glasgow with all corners of Spain. Ryanair, flythomascook and Thomson Flights all fly to the islands of Lanzarote, Ibiza, Gran Canaria and Majorca in about three hours, and also fly to many mainland destinations. Ryanair fly to airports including Barcelona, Reus, Malaga and Alicante in between two and a half and three and a half hours.

Several airlines also offer direct services to Murcia, Fuerteventura and Tenerife, but if the Spanish capital, Madrid, is your final stop, you will need to catch an indirect flight. The fastest of these are generally the Iberia and British Airways routes via Heathrow, which should take about five hours. To find the best route for you, consult our flight search tool.

Alternative Airports

If none of the Glasgow services suit your trip, consider flying from nearby Edinburgh. Low cost airlines such as Jet2, Ryanair and easyJet offer direct service to the destinations mentioned above, and Ryanair also fly direct to Santander, while easyJet offer a direct Madrid flight.

Getting Cheap Flights to Spain

To get the lowest airfares possible when planning a holiday to Spain, try to avoid travelling during the peak summer months of June, July and August, as thousands of UK holidaymakers descend on Spain, pushing prices up.

April is a good time to travel, as the weather is still warm, particularly in the south and on the islands, and the cost of getting there will be much more affordable. And don't forget to book flights well ahead of time, especially if you travel with Ryanair or easyJet who offer very cheap flights to Spain.
