Prestwick Airport Railway Station near the town of Prestwick, South Ayrshire, Scotland. The station is 37 miles south west of Glasgow Central, on the Ayrshire Coast Line.

It opened on 5 September 1994. It is currently the only railway station in Scotland that is directly connected to an airport, though railway links have been proposed for Edinburgh Airport and Glasgow Airport. It is also the only railway station in Scotland not managed by ScotRail or Network Rail.


The station is served by three trains an hour in each direction to Glasgow Central and Ayr and occasional services to Kilmarnock and stations beyond Ayr. The journey time to Glasgow is around 46 minutes.
