When people discuss their holiday to Edinburgh, they’ like to focus on its rugged charm. An ancient castle perfectly preserved atop a hill, a tartan tattoo blaring bagpipes along the Royal Mile, a wander through the old town where you marvel at the cobblestone pavements and rickety back alleys – these are the kind of memories people hold dear when they visit Scotland’s capital.
And why not? It’s an amazing city with a rich history and a richer culture of the arts. But one area of the city you won’t hear mentioned is vital to its tourist industry – Edinburgh Airport.
While it’s a standard airport in many respects, it’s also teeming with amenities, seating areas and special services (if you’re willing to fork out a little extra).
So let’s take a step inside Scotland’s flight hub and see what awaits you on your travels.
Park and fly
Finding a parking spot in an airport is traditionally about as much fun as eating shortbread laced with arsenic. But you don’t have to get your kilt in a twist when you’re driving around the parking areas of Edinburgh Airport. There, the multi-storey is your oyster.
If your car is having an Edinburgh Airport short stay, why not try a parking service from a third-party provider? A few around the airport will take your car, move it to an allotted space and shuttle you to your desired terminal.
It’s one of a few options that’ll help you park your car and get to your flight on time!
You’re a person on the move and, much like a shark, who knows what’ll happen when you stop. You don’t have the time to sit at a laptop and book your flights. Which is where an app comes in handy.
The Edinburgh Airport app is perfect for anyone looking for info about the flight hub. Flight times, weather reports and travel options are all available from the comfort of your home.
Do you want to be cramped in a departure lounge with everyone else, or do you want to lie back in a lounge of luxury? No 1 Traveller Lounges can give the latter – with an added dose of style.
It’s a lounge bursting with features, including,
• Free Wi-Fi
• Guest computers
• Newspapers and magazines
• A bar
• And much more
Can you imagine a more luxurious feeling than stepping aboard your plane in a fit of relaxation? Edinburgh Airport is looking pretty appealing now.
