Loganair mainly East Pier.
BA Summer charters park at all 3 at the weekend.
Flybe have left a lot of capacity on the central pier.
International arrivals can be on any gate... but if it’s not West pier they are coached to passport control.

Historically up to 5 E190s on the ground in GLA Friday and Saturday night... and obviously all international rotations. Plus LHR and LGW aircraft on regular schedules over the weekend.
As opposed to the regular weekday traffic being all domestic and only 2 LCY night stoppers, plus the LHR and LGW aircraft... usually 2 LHR and 1 LGW overnight.
