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.
Edinburgh Airport taxis offer a professional airport transfer service to all the major cities of Scotland.
