GO AIR

Air Travel in Edinburgh As you would expect from a capital, Edinburgh has its own international airport, which is little more than a stones throw from the city centre with excellent transport links.

The airport itself is off the M9 motorway with access via the A8 Edinburgh/Glasgow Road just 8 miles to the west of the city. Its location makes it easy to link up with the country’s main road network.

Getting to and from the city centre can also be done by taxi or by public transport. Taxis from the airport are available from the main forecourt and will cost approximately £12. The alternative would be to use the regular bus service run by Lothian Regional Transport although the service is limited in the early mornings and late evenings. Airport/city centre buses (bus no. 100) run every 10-15 minutes and take you from the main terminal to St Andrew’s Square, Waverly Bridge or Haymarket train station. The journey takes around 25 minutes.

Built in 1977 the airport has recently had a £100 million makeover and now further work is taking place which should make flying to and from Edinburgh a straightforward experience.

Once at the airport you can jet off with one of 30 airlines to destinations across the UK, Europe and beyond.

Direct links from Edinburgh to far-flung destinations such as Africa, Asia and the USA are pretty non-existent as Scotland’s main long haul airport is Glasgow International Airport, between 1 – 1.5 hours away.

If your heart is set on an exotic destination far away then you could also try going via London which is well connected in terms of flights with around 30 a day to London’s five airports or consider travelling by train which (if all goes well) is 4 hours from the city centre.


Edinburgh is approximately:
1 hour 15 minutes from London
8 hours 30 minutes from New York
12 hours from Los Angeles
8 hours 45 minutes from Toronto
22 hours 15 minutes from Sydney
