Prestwick Airport is situated right on the Ayrshire coast, 32 miles southwest of Glasgow City centre and 37 miles southwest of Glasgow Airport.
It has for many years now been the home of budget airlines such as Ryanair and Easyjet, serving primarily European destinations, it is also very busy handling cargo flights.
Prestwick Airport is also famous for being the only place that Elvis Presley ever set foot on British soil, for on the 3rd March 1960 Elvis was returning to the United States on board a USAF plane after completing his national service when his plane unexpectedly arrived at Prestwick, which in those days was home to the 1631st United States Air Force unit, after two hours at Prestwick Elvis resumed his flight to the states.
Although Prestwick Airport has the convenience of having it's own Train Station, this is great if you are travelling during the day on weekdays, but not so good if your flight is arriving late at night or on public or bank holidays.
If you are travelling as part of a group, and you take into consideration the train fares from Prestwick, and also the taxi fares to get you from the train station to your home, and also the time spent waiting around on a cold, damp and draughty platform after a four hour flight, then the option of having a taxi waiting at Prestwick Airport that will drop you right at your door doesn't look that expensive an option after all!.
