Edinburgh Airport is expecting over 75,000 visitors to fly in to Edinburgh this week for the world famous Princes Street party and Hogmanay celebrations.
The airport said it was expecting its busiest ever new year as revellers flock to the city from around 70 countries. Gordon Dewar from Edinburgh Airport said: “Last year’s arriving passenger figures in the run-up to New Year smashed all records of Scottish Airports, so to go one better this year is a great achievement.
“People want to visit us – and at this time of year they want to party with us.”
The celebrations start with the torchlight procession on December 30, when 10,000 torchbearers will travel from George IV Bridge to Calton Hill for the fireworks finale.
Biffy Clyro will headline this year’s Concert in the Gardens on Hogmanay, with performances planned by Maximo Park, Slaves and Idlewild among others.
Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) is fast tracking delegates in Scotland’s capital city with travel cards for airport transfersand other journeys on Edinburgh Trams and Lothian Buses.
The venue is promoting ‘Ridacard’ to professional event managers and this week hundreds of delegates attending a major pharmaceutical conference in the city will use the prepaid travel cards for the first time.
Visiting professional event manager, Hayley Bridgman of Ashfield Meetings and Events said: “Integrated public transport systems are highly prized and well used by international conference delegates who want to make the most of their time in a capital city that many will be visiting for the first time”.
EICC Corporate Sales Specialist, Ekaterina Alison said: “International meetings bring thousands of business tourists to Edinburgh and increasingly organisers are concerned to build public transport into the programme which is always the best environmental option”.
Edinburgh Trams operate a 14km route between York Place in the city centre and Edinburgh Airport, roughly every 10 minutes. Each tram vehicle can accommodate 250 people at any one time and are 100% wheelchair accessible. Along the route are 15 tram stops, connecting passengers with a bus network of over 70 routes, railway stations and popular leisure and business destinations. Travelling from the airport to the city centre takes approximately 35 minutes.
Scotland’s capital city of Edinburgh is served by daily direct flights from 85 European cities and from New York, Chicago and Philadelphia in the United States. Middle Eastern routes include daily services from the Qatari capital, Doha and from 2015, Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.
Giving control over Air Passenger Duty (APD) to the Scottish Parliament could encourage visitors to come to the country for the Ryder Cup and Commonwealth Games, transport and tourism bosses say.
The Commonwealth Games and the Ryder Cup will be held in Scotland next year but some industry leaders believe tourists could be put off from flying to the country because of high APD charges.
Late last year, Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh airports commissioned a report that claimed the charge could lead to a drop in both passengers and tourism spending. The tax could cost the Scottish economy £210 milliona year by 2016 and reduce the number of visitors by 2.1 million a year.
Transport Minister Keith Brown said: “Scotland will welcome the world in 2014 courtesy of the Commonwealth Games and Ryder Cup, and yet we are in the absurd situation of increasing costs for people who intend to visit Scotland.
“The ‘World Economic Forum, Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Report 2013’ shows that the UK has amongst the highest aviation taxes and charges in the world, ranked 139th out of 140.
“I would urge the UK Government to deliver devolution of APD as soon as possible so that we can develop a regime that makes Scotland more competitive.”
Gordon Dewar, chief executive of Edinburgh Airport, said airlines are questioning the viability of basing planes in Scotland because of APD.
He said: “This tax has now hit its tipping point where the damage that it is doing to Scotland far outweighs the benefits. It cannot stand and must be reviewed as a matter of urgency.
“Airlines are telling us that they are seeing it have an impact on passenger flows which is ultimately having an impact on their decision making on where to put planes. This means that our country has to work harder to get the connections it requires.
“The evidence lays bare the argument that this tax is assisting with the deficit. Rather, APD is hindering our ability to tackle the economic challenges Scotland faces.”
