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.

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.”

Shock survey disputed by Edinburgh Airport

To the surprise of many passengers , Edinburgh Airport has been named as the fifth worst airport in the world according to a survey from AirHelp.

To assess airports, AirHelp examined data from December 22, 2016 to March 20, 2017 taking into account delayed and cancelled flights, quality and service ratings taken from Skytrax rankings, and social media sentiment analysis. Three British airports featured in the ten lowest ranked, London Gatwick, Manchester and Edinburgh. Heathrow was ranked as the top ranked airport in the UK.
Edinburgh Airport have disputed the results of the survey and the scoring system implemented. A spokesman for Edinburgh Airport said: “We don’t think that this so called AirHelp score helps anyone. “It’s wrong and we don’t recognise the figures given or agree with the weighting. “Our passengers and airlines tell us how we’re performing and we’ll continue to work hard at giving the best service we can, measuring our performance and listening to make sure we get better.”
The study was carried out at 76 airports across the world and also looked to establish the best airline. Marius Fermi, UK Country Manager at AirHelp said: “It’s important – now more so than ever – that passenger service is a top priority of both airlines and airports, ensuring they receive the experience they deserve, so it’s fantastic to see that Singapore is setting the standard for customer-first service. “It’s disappointing, then, that British airports like Edinburgh are landing at the bottom of the global list – providing passengers with lower than average quality and service, more flight delays and cancellations than others, and low-levels of positive social media engagement. Airports and airlines should take note ahead of the travel rush this summer.” Flybe came in 22nd, while Ryanair and Monarch featured in the bottom five of the rankings which measure on-time performance, quality of service and how well airlines process claims for compensation.
