Edinburgh Airport

It might seem some way off but both scheduled and holiday airlines are now busy selling their 2016 summer programmes.  It is good for ‘cash flow’ too.

Jet2.com has announced its biggest ever growth at Edinburgh and will be basing five aircraft there this time next year.  Twelve new destinations – Antalya, Crete, Dalaman, Gran Canaria, Kefalonia, Larnaca, Lanzarote, Paphos, Rhodes, Tenerife, Vienna and Zante are being added. 

With the extra capacity more seats will be available to seven of Edinburgh’s popular holiday spots  Alicante, Faro, Ibiza, Majorca, Malaga, Menorca and Reus.

Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport, said: “Excitingly we’ll see the introduction of the first service between Edinburgh and Vienna which is a particularly important destination for us to serve.  Not only will it offer leisure travellers great choice for city breaks, it opens up further trade and business links between Scotland and this major European hub. 

“Such extensive growth is great news for both the Scottish economy and Scottish customers and highlights our attractiveness as the airport of choice for both 
passengers and airlines."  www.jet2.com   www.edinburghairport.com
