Edinburgh Airport

Edinburgh Airport Edinburgh Airport is Scotland's fastest growing airport, having recently undergone a £100 million redevelopment to extend and upgrade its terminal facilities. Located seven miles the west of the capital, its two runways handle over 6 million passengers each year.

Check-in is located in the middle of the ground-floor concourse. Domestic arrivals is located on the right of the ground-floor concourse and international arrivals is on the left of the ground-floor concourse.

We have installed a state-of- the art information desk in UK arrivals, a business area, more smoking areas and are installing additional catering and shopping outlets in the departure lounge.

There are a variety of transport options for getting to and from the airport.
