Your Scottish Airport to the World
Ryanair launch new direct flights from Glasgow to Krakow and Madrid
03 November 2017
Glasgow Airport has welcomed the launch of its latest new routes as Ryanair commence direct flights from Scotland's largest city to Krakow and Madrid.
The inaugural flights departed from Glasgow Airport on 29 October 2017 with direct flights to Krakow now operating every Wednesday and Sunday while direct flights to Madrid are available every Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.
The new routes between Scotland's largest city and Krakow and Madrid are already proving popular with thousands of Polish and Spanish tourists using the services to visit Glasgow and other major tourist draws in Western Scotland including Argyll & Bute, Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park and many of the country’s top whisky distilleries and golf courses.
The new services are proving equally popular with Scottish travellers.
Krakow is recognised as Poland's second city and the tourist capital. It has everything that you want in an historic European city - a beautiful old town and main square, with sophisticated cafes for people watching, unique and eccentric bars, museums and galleries. Krakow's old fashioned charm is what really sets it apart from other cities in Poland. To feel like you've stepped back in time, look out for the guard in the tower on the central square who blows a trumpet every hour on the hour to let the people of the city know all is well.
Madrid is a capital that truly feels alive. Streets that buzz with energy, restaurants filled with poetic chatter and an infectious city-wide atmosphere. Madrid is a wonderful city that truly inspires a casual stroll around the green areas. People are happy and there are impressive buildings, lush parks and picturesque streets in abundance. Culture is ever present here and you don't have to be a history buff to appreciate the architecture and reminders of history.
The new routes from Glasgow and Krakow and Madrid further cements Glasgow Airport’s position as Scotland's gateway to both Poland and Spain with direct flights to 9 Polish cities including Gdansk, Krakow and Warsaw, and 16 Spanish destinations including Barcelona, Madrid and Valencia. Glasgow Airports multi-award winning customer service, unrivalled choice of worldwide destinations and its central location with direct motorway access ensures the airport is the preferred choice for travellers from across Scotland including those in Ayrshire, Edinburgh, Stirling, Perth, Dundee, Aberdeen and beyond.
