“These record breaking passenger figures’ for April underline Edinburgh Airport’s ongoing success and very welcome indeed.

 

“Our expansion of routes and destinations is good news for travellers and it also creates new jobs, opportunities and offers greater international links for people in this city and for all of Scotland.

 

“With growth comes an increase in demand; it is vital that we are able to deliver a successful Airspace Change Programme to modernise the infrastructure in the sky. To this end I thank everyone who responded to the recent public consultation on this matter.”
