Ian Strafford-Taylor, CEO at FairFX, said: “Employee expenses can be a costly business for any size company, but for small and medium sized businesses in particular, it can be an even more hard-hitting impact on your bottom line.

“It’s scary to see just how easily expenses can pile up depending on which destination you’re in, and how wildly they vary from place to place. While you might not have much choice over the destinations where you do business, it’s worth considering your departure airport if you want more control over what’s being spent.

“Paying to access an executive lounge so employees can access a calmer working environment before their flight could be a good investment if it means they can squeeze in some extra work, but some of the premium no-hassle airport parking prices might make travellers think twice about the need for priority or premium services.”

Edinburgh Airport app

Edinburgh Airport has shown it can keep up with the digital age by launching its own mobile app, developed to provide passengers with flight tracking, terminal and parking information – making it easier to travel to and through Scotland’s busiest airport. Travellers can get the Edinburgh Airport App free from the Android Market and iTunes App Store. The app, which can also be used over Boingo wifi in the airport, features of the following:

• Flight tracking for both in- and out-bound journeys
• Journey planner to and from the airport via taxi , bus or train
• Integrated Google map with directions to the busy hub for drivers
• Comprehensive terminal map with hotspots for shopping and eating

Gordon Robertson, Head of Communications at Edinburgh Airport, said:
“The creation of the Edinburgh Airport App will help our passengers with their journey even before they set foot in the terminal. We’re always looking for ways we can improve our travellers’ experience and we’re hoping the new Edinburgh Airport App will enhance their time at Edinburgh Airport. Its free use in the terminal thanks to our work with Boingo means it’s an invaluable tool for all passengers.”

Bjorn Thorngren, Director of EMEA for Boingo Wireless, said:
“Travelling can be a bit chaotic, and it’s a stressful experience for many. EDI’s Airport App is a great tool to help users navigate the airport and better coordinate their trip. We’re always looking for ways to help our airport partners maximise their passenger experience; this is a great way we both can add value to travellers.”

There is also an innovative section for car parking. You can take a photo of your spot and store it so you don’t lose your car in the car park. Travellers can also reserve their parking space in advance using geo location and tagging of the exact location of their vehicles.

The app is available for both Android and iPhone and is free to download.
