Edinburgh Airport passenger increase linked to new international routes

The Car Hire Edinburgh Airport branch do like the new routes that have been announced over recent months at the airport. 

The increase in passenger numbers at Edinburgh Airport has been helped due to the new international routes. There was an increase of 5.7% on passengers in May compared to last year.

The airport’s chief executive Gordon Dewar said “May was a tremendous month for us at Edinburgh Airport. We enjoyed two of our most successful weeks ever when we launched four international airline routes, something which we’ve never experienced before. We worked hard with our city partners to deliver Edinburgh’s first Middle Eastern route and we’re looking forward to a successful partnership with Qatar Airways who are operating Scotland’s first scheduled Dreamliner. The success of these new routes will enhance our global connectivity and ensure we continue to provide our passengers with the best choice possible.”

Some of the new route launches included EasyJet flying to Bodrum in Turkey and Heraklion in Greece and the Jet2 service to Verona in Italy. Swiss carrier Edelweiss also launched a flight to Zurich.
