EDI began as a military base during WWI and WWII, and in 1947, the first commercial flights began when service between London and Edinburgh was established by British European Airways. In the 1950s, the runway was extended and a net was secured to keep planes from hitting traffic on a local road if they overran the runway. By 1977, the airport had undergone several changes, including a runway that gave the Concorde enough room to land and a new terminal. The net was removed. Since 1977, the facilities have been updated and expanded to handle the increasing number of travelers.

Parking is available for short- and long-term travelers. Reservations are suggested, but not necessary. Ground transportation includes taxis, buses, trams and trains.

Edinburgh Airport Reviews

★★☆☆☆
45 minutes queue to get to the Jet2 bag drop. Lots of snaking, queuing people. This is at 5:55am on a Saturday morning! No time to experience the wifi, shops & terminal facilities. Long queues at security but at least they kept moving at a reasonable pace.
- Ewan Greig

★★★★★
Security was slow,was a Saturday afternoon,and big queues,after getting through that all was ok,not that many food places,only 1 pub,but still a nice airport,and easy top get to by bus or tram,I prefer the bus,its far better than the tram,
- davemcd

★★★☆☆
I used to like Edinburgh airport - good facilities, ramp views and comfortable cafés kept me happy. However, in my most recent visit I was dismayed to discover the utter shambles which is security in the new 'EAST' extension. It's slow, badly laid out, and looks like a shed from the inside. Oh, and the free wifi is a hideous affair... You must fill out a completely excessively long form before being allowed access to the network. Much prefer Glasgow now. The self service check in wasn't bad right enough.
- David MacDonald

★★★★☆
First trip inside the terminal and indeed since December 2008, very nice place. Friendly security and gate crew, reasonable range of food/drink outlets too. Be warned nicotine fans, no smoking area!
- Julian

★★★★★
Very clean looking airport, with the at gate seating looking to the runway, great way to pass the time waiting for your flight. Security was fast and friendly, and plenty of people around to assist. I didnt use any of the lounges so no review on them, and appeared to be plenty of food and drink places around to get whatever you may need.
- Robert Brooks

★★★★★
What an amazing airport! Through security in minutes. After security the shops and restaurants are very nice and plentiful with a wide variety of choice with cheap prices. Terminal facilities (toilets etc) were very modern, clean and there was no ques!
- Goofy99

★★★★★
Again another favorable experince of Edinburgh Airport, this time however i was flying early evening (1630 departure), and i was quite surprised to see only 5 security lanes open, with queing from the boarding check gates. Nevertheless 15mins, and a fairly stony faced set of security people later, i was through, and into where the airport excels. Air side. A truly fantastic range of retail outlets to pass even the longest of waits. I recommend seating yourself between gates 10-11 for fantastic views of the main taxiway and runway, if you like watching aircraft movements. The glass (was) clean, so photographs are even possible!
- Robert Brooks

★★★★☆
Having an outstanding variety of Whiskey in perhaps the biggest duty-free Whiskey-Shop in an airport area, the Edinburgh airport provides good services for food and retail and has a more than sufficient infrastructure.
- Henric Eschenbruch

★★★★☆
It was kind of confusing because we have different airport in Slovakia and I've never seen an airport like this, it was very strict if you had heavier baggage but the system was probably easier for the staff.
- Dominika Hvorková

★★★★★
The airport is small, but very nice, it's not overcrowded. If you are gonna want to fly to Scotland, take the Edinburgh airport!
