edinburgh airport logoEdinburgh Airport has today welcomed new figures showing that it is officially the UK’s fastest growing airport in terms of international passengers.

The 21% growth in international passengers from 2015 – 2016 at Edinburgh pipped the Luton for top spot in the table of UK airports above 1m international passengers.

This successful expansion has been reinforced by the fact Edinburgh Airport now, for the first time ever, has over 200 routes on sale.

Welcoming this Edinburgh Airport’s Chief Executive Gordon Dewar, said:

“This expansion of routes in and out of Edinburgh Airport generates more growth for Scotland’s economy and creates work and leisure opportunities for people and businesses.

“Growth also continues to expand the opportunity for people from overseas to come and visit Scotland.

“We have a healthy equilibrium of inbound and outbound passengers with the most balanced mix of any UK airport outside London.

“The blend of increasing long haul routes, the enhanced choice to destinations across Europe and an unrivalled range of services to London and domestic locations has proved to be a winning combination.

“This growth reinforces the strength and appeal of Edinburgh as a destination and the global draw of Scotland, giving us greater confidence as we look to the future.”
