Ah the pre-flight pint.

Whether it’s 6am or 6pm, time doesn’t exist once you get through those security gates. The airport beer is a sacred ritual among us Brits – but it’ll cost you.

Pubs and bars in departure lounges just love hiking up those prices, meaning you’ve spent half of your holiday budget before you’ve even boarded the plane.

So if you’re currently searching for flights for that all-important summer getaway, you might want to factor in the cost of your airport pint – and luckily, new research has worked out the UK’s cheapest.

The UK’s cheapest airport beer can be found in Scotland, at Glasgow International Airport, where the average price is £6.06. Yes, that’s still enough to make your wallet groan – but considering how pricey airports can be, it’s not too bad.

The airport is also home to the UK’s cheapest drink at any airport bar, with a pint at Tennent’s Pier Bar, located near Gate 29, costing just £4.79.
