Edinburgh Airport taxis to get better access

Edinburgh Airport plans £20m investment in transport improvements

More than £20m is being invested to improve transport access as part of ongoing development works at Edinburgh Airport.

Airport news from Airport taxis Edinburgh – book now on 0800-6190575

Edinburgh is the sixth busiest airport in the UK, with over 14.3 million passengers a year, and the first phase of the project will deliver a new east terminus next summer, which will provide:

  • Covered walkways for passengers;
  • A new passenger bridge;
  • A new PRM waiting area;
  • A new base for the airport’s licenced taxi operation;
  • A self-service kiosk for booking private taxis.

The second phase of the project will deliver a new access road to further ease congestion on Eastfield Road and will see the entire taxi drop-off facility move to the new facility.

As well as making it easier for licensed taxis to drop off and pick up passengers, this multi-million pound project will also see the construction of a new access road, helping to ease the congestion we currently see on Eastfield Road at peak times.

Gordon Dewar, chief executive of Edinburgh Airport, said: “As an airport, we provide quick and easy travel to destinations all over the world. That trip starts and ends here, so making it easier for people to get to and from the airport is important to us.

“By investing in our infrastructure, we’ll be able to deliver better access for public transport and increase those travel options for passengers, directly improving their journey.”

Edinburgh stars in new Eurovision film

Former James Bond Pierce Brosnan and Rachel McAdams, star of Mean Girls and The Notebook, will appear alongside Will Ferrell in the movie, which is expected to spend a week shooting in the city and involve around 200 extras.

Ferrell, who shot to fame on the American sketch show Saturday Night Live, has co-written the screenplay for Eurovision, which he researched during a visit to the event – staged in Edinburgh in 1972 – in Lisbon last year.

The actor, whose other hits include Elf, Blades of Glory and Daddy’s Home, and McAdams play a pair of aspiring Icelandic musicians “given the opportunity of a lifetime to appear at the world’s biggest song competition.”

Brosnan has been cast as the father of Ferrell’s character, with the former described as “the most handsome man in Iceland.”

Locations in the Old Town and New Town have been lined up for starring roles, along with the historic fishing village of Newhaven, on Edinburgh’s waterfront. It is understood the city will not be standing in for another location in the movie. However it is not known what role Edinburgh will play in the storyline.

News of Eurovision’s forthcoming filming in Edinburgh has emerged days after several weeks of shooting on Fast and Furious 9 wrapped up.

Rosie Ellison, manager of the Film Edinburgh commission, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for the city to be showcased to millions of both film and Eurovision fans around the world. It allows us to once again demonstrate our film-friendly credentials to the global film industry.”

Cammy Day, depute leader of the city council, added: “It is a source of real pride that Edinburgh attracts these kinds of projects and it’s very exciting to welcome the latest project from Netflix to the city next week. We welcome filming for the economic benefit, employment opportunities and the on-screen promotion it brings.

“Productions are exciting for film fans and we ensure that filmmakers engage with all residents and businesses within the area in which they plan to film, to make sure that life can continue with as little disruption as possible when the city takes centre stage.”

The city had a starring role in last year’s Netflix film Outlaw King, in which Hollywood star Chris Pine played Robert the Bruce. Craigmillar Castle, in the south of the city, was one of the main locations transformed for filming. Edinburgh filmmaker Matt Palmer shot his award-winning 2018 Netflix thriller Calibre in Edinburgh and West Lothian.

Recent comedies shot in Edinburgh include Burke and Hare, which starred Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis, and Festival, which was set at the Fringe.

Edinburgh Airport has the busiest ever month for a Scottish airport

Edinburgh Airport

recorded the busiest ever month for a Scottish airport for the second time as a total of 1,508,586 passengers passed through it in July 2019.

Airport news from Airport taxis Edinburgh – phone 0800-6190575 for bookings .

The figures are up 0.4% on the same month last year, but growth is down from 6.3% in July 2018.

Jul% vs Last Year
Domestic475,757-4.7%
International1,032,829+3.0%
Total1,508,586+0.4%
MAT Total14,763,216+6.5%

Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said:“It’s a bittersweet month for us – we’ve just recorded the busiest ever month for a Scottish airport for the second time, but it comes as we see a marked slowdown in growth.

“The fall in domestic travel has clearly had an impact and although there is growth internationally we cannot ignore the loss of routes over the past year, such as Norwegian pulling their transatlantic services.

“We previously warned that failure to cut the highest aviation tax in the world have an adverse effect on growth and this appears to be coming to fruition. Our industry hears the government’s concerns around the climate but the positive steps taken towards making aviation more sustainable have not been considered.

“Like all businesses, we are looking at how we make our operations more sustainable and how we can influence the wider industry to continue on that positive path. The airport campus employs around 7,000 people and as a business overall we support 23,000 jobs across Scotland – we have to find a way that delivers sustainable growth to ensure continued success for our economy.”

Airport drop-off charges on the increase

It will come as no surprise to frequent flyers that airport drop-off charges are on the increase .

The RAC said 18 of the 22 they looked at have introduced or raised drop-off fees and claimed motorists were “often left wincing” at the prices.

Airport taxis Edinburgh freephone 0800-6190575

Charges for seeing off someone as close to the terminal as possible have gone up at eight airports compared with last year.

Stansted and Luton topped the poll of the priciest airports for loved ones to say goodbye at, with initial charges of £4 for 10 minutes and 13 minutes, respectively.

Many airports offer short-term car parks for pick-ups so drivers can leave their vehicles and greet their passengers at the arrivals area.

Stansted hiked its prices for this type of parking the most, with a £2.50 rise to £8 for half an hour, taking it level with Luton for the most expensive pick-up fee.

In comparison, if you are dropping off or picking up at Leeds-Bradford, you get one whole hour for free.

Birmingham is the third costliest airport at £5.50 for an hour, and along with, East Midlands, Doncaster-Sheffield and Newcastle, it added £1 to its minimum dropping off charges.

Manchester asks for the most money per minute, with drivers getting just five for £3 – while in comparison – Heathrow and Gatwick are among six airports which continue to offer free drop-off facilities.

RAC spokesman Simon Williams said the best advice is to “do your research” before heading to an airport to drop off or pick someone up.

He added: “Many travellers simply do not have easy public transport access to get to the airport and even if they do, they can’t always depend on it getting them to the airport in good time.

“Many drivers dropping off their friends or family will naturally only spend a minute or two doing so, which makes the experience all the more painful.”

Some airports offer cheaper rates, or even no charges for using car parks further away from the terminal, which often requires a shuttle bus connection.

A spokesman for the Airport Operators Association said: “Airports that operate drop-off charges directly outside the terminal do so for a number of different reasons, including to manage congestion in capacity-restricted areas and to limit the environmental and air quality impacts of kiss and fly journeys.

“As the RAC notes, airports offer free drop-off and pick-up alternatives with good links to the terminal.

“This information ensures travellers are well-informed on the range of options to suit their needs.”

The initial fees for using a car park close to airport terminals to pick up passengers, according to the RAC:

1:= Luton: £8 for 30 minutes

1= Stansted: £8 for 30 minutes

3:: Birmingham: £5.50 for one hour

4:: Manchester: £4.50 for 30 minutes

Edinburgh Airport to showcase Fringe acts

Acts from the world-famous Edinburgh Fringe will perform at Edinburgh Airport for the first time as the terminal becomes a new showcase venue.

From August 2-24, a selection of performers will give visitors a taste of the Fringe with 20-minute-long performances on the airport’s Plaza area, with a stage being set up next to the famous ‘EDINBURGH’ sign. Working with MLA Talent, acts will be sourced throughout the festival to keep the daily schedule fresh and exciting for passengers.

Airport taxis Edinburgh phone 0800-6190575

Edinburgh Trams will provide free travel for the performers who will also showcase their acts on the journey to and from the airport.

Gordon Dewar, chief executive of Edinburgh Airport, said, “Edinburgh’s festivals are renowned across the globe and every year we have visitors flying in from all over the world to experience it for themselves, which brings a great atmosphere to the city.

“There’s no better way to welcome visitors to our fantastic capital city than giving them a taste of the festivals from the moment they land, creating that positive start to what we hope is a memorable trip to Scotland and Edinburgh.”

Edinburgh Airport sets a new record

Edinburgh Airport celebrated its busiest June on record this week following the news that passenger numbers exceeded 1.4 million last month.

Edinburgh Airport taxis freephone 0800-6190575

This comes as the Scottish capital welcomed two new transatlantic services this summer, including American Airlines’ service to Philadelphia (pictured), and a Delta Airlines route to Boston. Speaking of the news was Gordon Dewar, CEO Edinburgh Airport: “The summer months are always our busiest as families head off on holiday and people have that long waited break in the sun, and yet again we’ve experienced a record month which signals a strong start to the summer season. Our continued efforts to deliver greater route choice and capacity are delivering positive results and increasing Scotland’s connectivity to the world is something we’re always working on”. In total, 13 new routes have been launched in 2019 so far from Edinburgh, including new carriers such as start-up Great Dane Airlines’ flight to Aalborg

New hotel development in Edinburgh’s Old Town

A new hotel development in Edinburgh’s Old Town has been placed on the market with an £8m price tag.

Airport taxis Edinburgh International – taxi to St Andrews and Fife

The Canongate will sit in a redeveloped Grade C-listed Victorian schoolhouse, comprising 21 apart-hotel style bedrooms as well as commercial units that could be used for bars, restaurants or outdoor terrace areas.

The hotel will form part of the New Waverley development project, which will include new leisure and retail spaces as well as 148 residential apartments across a 7.5 acre space.

Knight Frank is marketing the building on behalf of developer Edinburgh Castle for offers in excess of £8m. The developer has predicted that operating rooms revenue will be £1.4m a year, representing a potential yield of 12.2% after operation costs.

Canongate atrium

Jim Cummings, director of Edinburgh Castle said: “Final renovation work at the schoolhouse site should coincide with completion of the office development phase at New Waverley. We’ve seen an increase in footfall as the regeneration takes shape, and with the new government office bringing 2,900 civil service jobs to the area, we can expect this to continue. The area is fast becoming an established district in the capital, creating an exciting community for visitors as well as those who live and work in Edinburgh’s historic city centre.”

Neil Scott, partner of Knight Frank Edinburgh, added: “New Waverley has provided a significant boost to the city centre in Edinburgh – it has revitalised a once largely empty part of the city. The Canongate is an attractive opportunity for a hotel operator or investor to be part of what is fast-becoming one of the most successful regeneration schemes in the city, and even perhaps Scotland.”

The hotel is expected to be completed for hand over in June 2019.

Marriott takes aim at Airbnb

Marriott takes aim at Airbnb, expands into home rentals



While homesharing giant Airbnb extends its reach into the traditional hotel market, Marriott International is headed in the opposite direction.


Marriott plans to push further into homesharing after testing home rentals in Europe last year.
It will soon begin taking bookings vis its website for 2,000 home rentals in 100 cities across the U.S, Europe and Latin America.
Airbnb experiences

It is focusing on higher end properties starting at about $200 per night for a one-bedroom apartment.
Game of Thrones tour Airbnb

The service will expand its footprint in many new markets with rentals in 40 cities that do not currently compete with an existing Marriott brand hotel.





Marriott is partnering with rental management companies to manage housekeeping and maintenance.


Marriott is hoping the scale of its Bonvoy guest loyalty program and luxury portfolio will lure customers.


“One of the challenges you see with home-sharing is there’s too much inventory without quality filters or brand assurances. There’s inconsistency across the brand experience,” said Stephanie Linnartz, Marriott’s global chief commercial officer.


Still, it has a long way to go to match the scale of Airbnb, even just within the luxury segment.


Airbnb has six million listings worldwide.


Airbnb has just announced a collaboration with a real estate developer to introduce a 200-suite hotel in Rockefeller Plaza, Manhattan.


It also acquired last-minute booking service Hotel Tonight last month.

Edinburgh Airport could be sold off by GIP

Scotland’s busiest airport could be set to change hands in a multibillion pound deal, according to reports. The private equity firm which owns Edinburgh Airport is said to considering a sale of the hub in a deal which could it see it make a profit in excess of £1bn. Edinburgh Airport news from Airport Taxis Edinburgh International

Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP), a New York based investor group, purchased the airport from the now defunct BAA for £807m seven years ago.

But amid speculation the company is now looking to cash on soaring valuations of aviation infrastructure, it could sell on Edinburgh for as much as £2bn.

It is understood any potential sale could accelerate the airport’s growth strategy. Flights are being launched to 12 new European routes later this year as well as a new link to the US city of Boston.

GIP has also welcomed new hotel development at the Turnhouse site along with a major expansion of its retail space. Plans are also in place to transform nearby land into an international business park.ADVERTISING

Last year GIP sold off its majority stake in Gatwick, with a hotly contested auction ultimately won by a £2.9bn bid from Vinci, the French airport operator.

In 2016, GIP sold London City Airport to a Canadian consortium for around £2bn, nearly three times what it paid for the hub a decade previously.

With Edinburgh GIP’s sole remaining part of its British airport portfolio, city sources told the Sunday Telegraph the company is considering dispensing with it altogether.

It comes at a time when Scotland’s busiest terminal is enjoying unprecedented growth.

It handled nearly 15 per cent more passengers last month than it did over the same period in 2018, with the airport’s passenger total soaring to 1,106,998, the first time it has topped the one million figure in March.

It means the traditionally quieter months of January and February are the only ones not to achieve passenger totals in excess of seven figures in the space of a calendar year.

One major airport investor told the Sunday Telegraph that GIP is expected to wait for more clarity over Brexit before launching a formal sale process

One city source said major infrastructure funds including Brookfield, Macquarie, APG and CKI could be among those to register an interest in taking over Edinburgh.

A spokesman for Edinburgh Airport declined to comment on the reports, but it is not the first time GIP have been linked with a sale.

The group was said to have explored hiving off the hub in 2017, but decided against the move because uncertainty surrounding Brexit – in particular access to European aviation markets – would impact on the price.
