Full Answer

Glasgow Airport has a terminal divided into three piers: West, Central and East. The West Pier services international and long haul departures. Built in 1989, the pier was part of an expansion project and is the newest of the three. The Central Pier is part of the original building and services domestic destinations. The East pier, built in the mid 1970s, is mainly used by EasyJet and Logan Air, though has also serviced international flights.

In 2007, a SkyHub was built to establish one single security screening facility, rather than having one for each terminal pier. The extra space created now features expanded duty-free shopping and added space in the departure lounge. Glasgow Airport is home to the unit base of the Royal Air Force and acts as a training ground for students trying to join RAF.
