Edinburgh Airport prepares for latest milestone

Edinburgh Airport in Scotland has said it expects to welcome its ten millionth passenger of the year later.

This is will make the airport the first in the country to pass the milestone in a single calendar year.

Both short-haul and long-haul routes have grown at the airport this year, with more than 1.1 million people travelling through the location in July alone.

Thomson Airways was the latest airline to confirm new flights, saying it would fly new routes next year from Edinburgh to Cyprus and Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands.

Scotland minister for transport Derek Mackay said: “This is a fantastic milestone for Edinburgh Airport and for Scotland.


“It rounds off an incredible year for Edinburgh which saw the airport play its role in 2014’s exciting programme of events, including the Commonwealth Games, the Ryder Cup and a second Year of Homecoming.”
