This follows on form- and is on top of – the official opening of the new World Duty Free store at Edinburgh Airport in November which saw the creation of 44 new jobs.
Commenting on the creation of new retail jobs – and on the growth of Edinburgh Airport – Chief Executive Gordon Dewar, said:
“2015 was an incredible year for Edinburgh Airport; the growth in our passenger numbers is thanks to the increased choice of destinations and our commitment to improving the overall passenger experience.

“The expansion of the retail side of the business is a key element of our success. The fact is that Edinburgh Airport’s growth in the non-aero market allows us to be competitive and attract more airlines and more routes in and out of Scotland’s capital.

“Passengers have been taking full advantage of our excellent retail options like never before. And indeed all Edinburgh Airport passengers are benefitting with enhanced choice of destinations, including the 26 new routes between this winter and next summer.

“This strategy has not only seen passenger number grow to record levels, it benefits airlines too. It is good for us, good for our customers and ultimately – with the creation of more jobs and enhanced connectivity from the nation’s capital city – it is good for Scotland.”
