Edinburgh Airport’s £75 million terminal expansion, the biggest project in a generation at the gateway, was officially opened today by Scotland's First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon.
Scotland's airports are urging First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, to slash the Air Passenger Duty (APD) by 50% from April 2018 in a move they claim will generate an additional 4,000 jobs and bolster Scotland’s economy by an additional £1 billion.
Scotland’s two principle gateways continue to grow passenger traffic as more travellers pass through their terminals than ever before.
Scotland’s principal hubs have both reported strong surges in passenger traffic for January compared to the same month in 2013.
The principal airports serving the three most populous areas in Scotland all recorded an increase in traveller traffic for 2013.
