Airtransat and Easyjet same Glasgow Airport?

Hi

Does Airtransat and EasyJet fly out of the same Glasgow airport? We are travelling to Glasgow in June and getting a connecting flight to Berlin. We have 3 hour layover. Will this give us enough time to get our connecting flight? Any advice?

GLA is Glasgow international. Yes AirTransat and Easyjet both fly there.

3 hours should be plenty time to collect bags and check in for the next flight. Glasgow is a small airport.

Glasgow is indeed a simple and easy to navigate airport. But a question. What's your plan if the incoming flight is delayed, remembering that you have to navigate customs, immigration then get to easyjet bagdrop. easyjet check in deadlines are 'hard' deadlines.

As others say, it's the same airport. In relative terms, Glasgow airport is on the smaller side and easy to navigate and not generally prone to major queues at immigration/security etc. You can check-in online for easyjet flights 30 days before your date of travel so doing this may make things slightly easier (indeed I think that by June online checkin will be compulsory on easyJet), but you'll still have to drop your bags of at least 40mins before dep time - easyjet are VERY strict on this.

Given the above, if your inbound flight is ontime then 3 hours is plenty, but I would echo rcspeirs comments that it could be a bit dodgy if there is significant delay on yor inbound flight. I'm sorry to labour the point if you already realise this, but the two flights are not "connecting" in the eyes of either of he airlines in question and hence if your inbound flight is late and you miss your onward one to Berlin, neither airline will be in the least bit understanding or offer to help you out, leaving you having to stay the night and pay upfront for new tickets for the next days flight. It may well be worth the risk for you, and more than likely it'll all work out fine, but it is something to be aware of.
