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.”
