FAQs - booking Scotland flights

  • Do I need a visa to travel to Scotland?

    American citizens traveling to Scotland for tourism don’t need a visa if they’re not planning to stay in the country for more than three months. You must, however, have a passport valid for at least six months starting from the date of arrival in Scotland, and enough blank pages for visa stamps.

  • I’m visiting Inverness. Which airport do I fly into?

    There are no nonstop flights from the United States to the Inverness Airport (INV), which only receives flights from other European cities. To fly into Inverness, you need to book a flight to Scotland with a layover in London (Heathrow or Gatwick), Manchester, Dublin, or Amsterdam. Keep in mind that it may require several flights on multiple airlines. Alternatively, you can fly into Glasgow or Edinburgh and travel directly from there by train or bus to Inverness.

  • Are there nonstop flights from the US to Scotland?

    Many airlines offer nonstop flights from the US to Scotland. United flies from Newark, Chicago, and Washington DC to Edinburgh. Delta flies to Edinburgh and Glasgow from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). If you need to fly from Philadelphia to Edinburgh, look for flights to Scotland operated by American Airlines.

  • I’m traveling to Glasgow. Which airport do I fly into?

    Passengers traveling nonstop from the US will land at the Glasgow International Airport, 14m from the city center. The second airport in Glasgow, the Prestwick International Airport, is currently served only by low-cost flights on Ryanair to and from other cities in Europe.

  • High season is considered to be June and July. The cheapest month to fly from the United States is February.
  • Enter your preferred departure airport and travel dates into the search form above to unlock the latest Scotland flight deals.
  • When searching for flights to Scotland from the US, choosing to land at Edinburgh Airport (EDI) or Glasgow Airport (GLA) comes down to personal preference and the airline you’re flying with. The cities are a 1h 30m drive from one another, and both airports are well connected to the two largest cities in Scotland by an efficient network of buses, trains, and taxis.
  • Cities like Aberdeen, Inverness, and Shetland are served by international airports, but those only receive flights from other cities in the UK and Europe. To travel to these cities, American passengers will have to take flights with layovers in Glasgow or Edinburgh.
  • If you’re planning on visiting more than one city in Scotland, consider looking into low-cost flights between cities to optimize your travel time between destinations. Ryanair and easyJet are two of the Europe-based airlines with routes between Scottish cities.
  • If you’re looking for flights to Scotland to celebrate Hogmanay, the country’s particular way of celebrating New Year’s Eve that attracts thousands of tourists every year, make sure you find and book your flights well in advance.
  • Although the official currency in Scotland is the British Pound, as in the rest of the United Kingdom, it’s not unusual for some larger businesses to also take payments in Euros. To avoid confusion, it’s best to withdraw cash in an ATM when you arrive in Scotland or to exchange currency at the airport. At the Edinburgh Airport, you’ll find currency exchange counters near the baggage claim area and on the international arrival’s hall. At Glasgow Airport, Travelex offices are located pre- and post-security.

Airline reviews

The boarding and flight were ok, but there were several painful issues. The flight was 3:20 in the air and almost four hours door to door, but they only had snack packs on the plane. They really need to have food on longer flights or make it clear to everyone that they won’t have food. They also advertise free WiFi, but it did not work for 90% of this flight. Again, almost four hours door to door. If I had known I was flying spirit for JetBlue prices then I would have planned differently.

There was no wheelchair or wheelchair escort at the gate..unacceptable

Delayed 4 hours because of maintenance issue they knew about all day. Get another plane. Time is precious!

Surly, unhelpful ground staff at JFK. There was a complete lack of empathy—a flawed check-in ordeal caused us to miss our flight. All airlines that I have ever flown would have worked to help me solve the ticket problem. Instead, frontline employees shrugged their shoulders and pointed fingers at us for having made an error. I will do anything to avoid EVER flying on Jet Blue again. It well deserves its low rank among airlines.

no wifi and the aircraft was very old with tiny 4” screens.

Did not wait long for wheelchair and attendant to arrive after checking in. Wheeled down to plane Was greeted with a smile when entering the plane Choice of snacks was very limited to 2 items. Seats are uncomfortable. My butt was sore after the 1st hour of flying. Needs better cushioning at seats.

Did not wait long for wheelchair and attendant to arrive after checking in. Wheeled down to plane Was greeted with a smile when entering the plane Choice of snacks was very limited to 2 items.

One hour delayed departure resulted in problems with planned ground transportation at my destination.

Service for food to our seat was a bit slow. Snack choices were just pretzels or baked chips. My seat cushion was not attached. Other than Barbie, video choice were not very good or current.

No WiFi No TV Bag of chips I guess it could be worse.

Good. The wife was not working but then it got resolved.

Missed this flight due to delays from my previous flight

We waited too long to get water while the plane was on the Tarmac awaiting de-icing.

The flight from Ottawa to Chicago took a lot longer due to DC in Ottawa. We got to Chicago and went to our gate to catch our flight. We only had nine minutes I found that very stressful.

Flight was delayed by over an hour and gate checked bags took 15 minutes to be delivered to the jet bridge.

Got automatically assigned a middle seat, unless I fork out extra money for seat assigment.

Got automatically assigned middle seats unless you fork out extra money for a seat assignment, not impressed.

Good boarding. Crew started quick with drinks and food. They came around several times for trash which I really liked. Other than turbulence due to storms in the area, flight was great.

Seats are way too snug for my hip to knee ratio and the recline on the seat in front of me made my experience worst. My legs had no room at all. Not a plane for people 6 ft or over unless you fly first class.

Easy peasy. Crew was great. Take-off and landing nice anc chill (good job by the pilot). Thank you UA!

Always getting updates by email very easy to check in on line. There was plenty of checking in staff to get you all through. It was nice that the flight attendants took time to talk to you and were interested in your holiday.

Flight from Phoenix to London was very quiet. Excellent space available for comfort, couldn't fault

Food was very average. And top up drinks offer was absent. For a 11 hour long flight that should be the minimum. The crew didn't want to be there. I understand it was new year day but given they had signed up for it

It was my fault choosing the seat nearest the entrance but it was ok.

It was good, the staff was friendly and it was a typical flight to Europe.

My flight was a little marred by poorly fuctioning / loose headphone sockets meaning I had to move twice. The meals were good and the staff are always amazing, attentive and friendly. My bag was lost on my previos trip with BA for 15 days of my 18 day trip, however I experienced no such issues this time despite my fears. Overall ok but aircraft need better looking after.

I was placed in a seat assignment that I was unable to change prior to the boarding day. I showed up hours before boarding and prior to boarding I asked if I could be moved to sit next to my children. Without even looking or checking, I was immediately told that it was not possible to move anyone. I went ahead and waited until boarding at which time I sat down next to my children anyways. When the passenger that was supposed to be sitting next to my children showed up, he was very understanding, and immediately asked me if I was sitting next to family, to which I replied “yes,” after which he said “it’s okay” to let me know that I can continue sitting in his seat, while he takes my seat. However, in a very contrasting and rude manner, the very person that I asked earlier, if I could be moved, that was sitting at the gate prior to boarding the airplane, showed up across the other side of the aisle, and started screaming across the airplane, where everyone could hear, to have me move out of the seat I was currently sat in, or else she would remove me from the plane, during which time the other passenger told her (the American Airlines worker in charge) that it was okay, and he doesn’t mind that I was in his seat, making her aware that I was next to family, which is where I belonged. There was no complaint at any given time by anyone, including the passenger whose seat I was in, but my safety and my children’s safety was now in danger because of an American Airlines worker, that has no regard to her surroundings or the situation that she was actually facing. The importance and clarity that was predominant in her mind, was for me not to sit in any other seat, other than the one that I was assigned, not next to my children, even though the flight was booked for all of us at the same time. I understand it isn’t always possible to make certain seat assignments together, but when a passenger with the assigned seat next to my family is OK with me switching out with him, I would think the American Airlines worker in charge should not care, unless she considered a threat, but if I was a threat, I should have been removed from the airplane at the first sign. I was aggressive, I never raised my voice, but I did for a few seconds delay, my calculated response when I was asked to move. The passengers surrounding us were in awe of the way that the American Airlines worker in charge handled this situation, and pointed out that many other passengers in that very same airplane, just prior to our “event” had switched out their seats assigned, but I was singled out, possibly because I had requested this prior to boarding the plane. This made me wonder what kind of company American Airlines really is, and has since altered my newfound opinion of this company as a recent. I am very disappointed with American Airlines due to this event that has happened during boarding and prior to flying out on a trip I booked for my daughter that just turned 16 years of age, and her first time flying at the age of emancipation with her father.

very bad flight , service crew are tired and grumpy… I can forgive the worn seats and bad food as expected but the crew need more energy… old ppl are that way I guess… they shouldn’t be on long haul flights.

British Airways was over 2 hours late. Every time I fly with them the flight is either late or cancelled.

Flight was delayed. Food was horrible. Long waiting for our luggage

The worst customer service that I have ever experienced. They upcharge you for bags and the gate agent shoved my phone in my face. We contacted Spirit customer service and they did not help us. I will never fly spirit again

My experience was better than expected. What I did find not so great was the seats. Very little room, they did not recline and the tray table was the size of a post card. There was no food to try, just standard snacks that you had to pay for and I don’t know of any entertainment. I would fly again even though everything was an upcharge. Flight was on time with little disturbance

Was 2 hours early for my flight they canceled my flight 2 hours before flight took off then told me to get a flight 24 hours later I had to pay $297 for I missed it. I had flight insurance and bc they put I missed my flight I had to wait 2 days to book a new flight. Flight insurance through spirit isn’t worth anything because I ended up paying for my hotel and flight and insurance didn’t cover anything!!

Spirit delayed the late flight then canceled it with no rebooking options given, leaving me stranded in a city at 9pm at night. I ended up renting a car and driving at night in the pouring rain so could make it to my destination.

You get what you pay for. I did and was pleased.

Flight on time, crew gave great service, clean and updated plane.

Flight left very close to original projected time. Paid for checked bag weight overage (my fault). Plane was literally brand new & this was its 2nd flight. Seats were alittle uncomfortable (I'm 5'11 * 175lbs and was alittle cramped, & brand new seats had little cushion). Food options were good. Main thing was flight took off & landed on time.

Bad, my flight was delayed several hours. I was suppose to leave at 6:25pm, did not end up leaving till almost 11:00pm.

Service was awesome 👍🙏 thank you Spirit Airlines...love the Big Seat...😎

The flight was delayed and I had to cancel because I would have missed my connection and there were no other flights for the next two days. They also lost my bag!!

They didn’t bother to restock the plane before we left, so most items on the menu were not available.

they charge too much when you arrive in the air port

The flight was canceled, then delayed twice, we were moved gates twice. Short staff at the counter and check in. We waited for our flight 9 hours. Will never use Frontier ever again, or Spirit.

It’s a cheap airline and I wish if they had better seats.

It’s a cheap airline. I wish they had better seats.

The only issues had were outside of Frontier’s control or weren’t expected. It was a two hour flight they completed fast. We landed almost an hour ahead of schedule. The issues with no entertainment or food weren’t issues since there was no expectations. The issue of the loud or crying babies was outside of frontiers control.

My first time to fly Frontier and loved it! Boarding was super easy as we only had personal items. Crew was helpful and funny and the plane was clean. Pilot was also great at landing the plane smoothly.

The flight was delayed 1 hour. The Seats are the worst most uncomfortable chairs I have ever sat in. I have folding chairs in my Garage that are more comfortable.

Good - Leg spar, cleanliness, and on time performance. Bad - No snacks and entertainment.
