Edinburgh Airport Information
Edinburgh International Airport is Scotland's fastest growing airport, situated just 12km west of the city centre and easy to reach with reliable bus and taxi services.
Edinburgh International Airport opened in 2001 and now handles over five million passengers serving 56 destinations worldwide. There are more than 30 daily flights to London’s five airports, with regular flights to other major cities in the UK and overseas. There are plans to expand Edinburgh Airport by adding a further runway, although this is unlikely to be required within the next 20 years. BAA has recently made provision for an extension to the current runway, which would allow larger aircraft to serve longer haul destinations, as it is predicted that by 2030 Edinburgh Airport will be Scotland's busiest, handling 26 million passengers every year.
A new departure lounge has just been opened marking the completion of phase I of a wider £40m terminal redevelopment initiative. The new development is designed to cater for an increase in passenger volumes which is expected to reach up to 13 million by 2013.
Phase II of the terminal redevelopment initiative will include constructing a new central search security area on the first level of the building to double the airport's X-ray machines.
