Edinburgh Airport Scotland is an international station flying into Europe and North America. Budget airlines such as easyJet and Ryanair have helped to increase the passenger numbers over the past two years making Edinburgh Airport Scotland (EDI) the busiest in Scotland. Once an RAF base during WWII, it has been serving commercial airlines since the late 1940s.
Expansion is earmarked for the future as nine million passengers were counted in 2008 and that number is set to rise by estimates to 20 million by 2020. There is only a single terminal building at Edinburgh with the departure gates situated on level one. Check-in is neatly nestled between arriving passengers from international and domestic destinations on the ground level.
As part of a £100 million investment scheme the car rental facilities have been moved to their own building near to short stay parking. Disabled parking can be found in the short stay car park and if you are in need of assistance, use the help points to contact someone.
When entering the Arrivals halls from airside you can find an information desk and Edinburgh tourism desk. Bureau de change are located here along with ATMs and telephones. If you are looking for cheap car hire at Edinburgh Airport Scotland (EDI) follow the signs away from the terminal building along a short covered walkway.

Coach operators offer daily services to all over the country from the airport. Car hire at Edinburgh Airport Scotland (EDI) is the easiest way to travel around Scotland.
