Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport, Gordon Dewar said:



“New routes have brought further growth to Edinburgh Airport which cements our position as Scotland’s busiest airport.



“We had greater choice last month than compared with May 2017 with 23 new international routes to place like Washington D.C., Florence and Dalaman, while easyJet’s route to Jersey was also served for the first time. It’s that range of choice that is providing excitement and a sense of adventure in our passengers who are eager to see the world and can set off on that trip from Edinburgh.



“The launch of the greatly anticipated Hainan route to China will be another huge boost for tourism and with the busy festival season upon us, it promises to be a great summer for Scotland.”
