Edinburgh Airport’s £75 million terminal opens

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has officially opened Edinburgh Airport’s £75 million terminal expansion, the biggest project in a generation at the airport.

Part of a wider £200 million investment programme at Scotland’s busiest airport, the expansion enhances the airport’s connectivity options and will support passenger growth to twenty million passengers.

The expansion delivers new gates, new aircraft stands and new international and domestic passenger arrivals halls, as well as new baggage reclaim areas and an extended immigration hall. It also has new retail and food and beverage outlets, including the world’s first BrewDog airport bar.

It’s the start of a larger programme of investment in key terminal and airfield facilities over the next 5 years, with almost £300 million being spent on a new baggage system, more new stands, improved check-in facilities and a new access road.

The First Minister received a tour of the terminal expansion from Gordon Dewar, the airport’s Chief Executive. She also spoke to staff and passengers in the Special Assistance seating area which was designed with the help of users.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said: “I am delighted to open this terminal expansion, further establishing Edinburgh Airport as a gateway to Scotland from the rest of the UK and internationally. 

“Edinburgh Airport not only supports our business and tourism sectors but employs 700 people directly and 7,000 through partner businesses – I was particularly pleased to meet engineering apprentices who are learning their trade in a fast-paced environment such as aviation.

“This £75 million investment will future-proof the airport for continued growth. As an outward looking nation, it is now more important than ever that we enhance connectivity with our European partners and with the rest of the world.”

Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said: “This is of course an investment in Edinburgh Airport but it’s also an investment in Scotland’s economy and future as we are a facilitator of many things, from business and tourism to culture and education.

“More than 14 million people come through our doors every year and we have invested to accommodate even more as more and more people choose air travel to come to Scotland or to visit the world around us. We want that experience to be as positive as possible and this expansion provides greater options, including the ability to achieve greater connectivity.

“I’m delighted to be able to show the First Minister what we have delivered and to demonstrate the commitment and dedication that our staff and everyone involved in the construction of this expansion. I can think of no better reward than having the First Minister here to celebrate their work.”

Edinburgh Airport is Scotland’s busiest airport, handling more than 14.3 million passengers in 2018 – a record for any Scottish airport. The busiest ever month in Scottish aviation history was recorded at Edinburgh in July 2018 with 1,501,988 people passed through.

The airport flies to more than 150 destinations with more than 30 airlines.

A 2016 independent economic impact study showed we contributed over £1 billion per year to the Scottish economy, supporting 23,000 jobs across Scotland – that’s 2,000 jobs and £90m GVA for every million passengers.

Edinburgh Airport has pulled out all the stops to help families make a smooth departure with their new  security queue for families .

But airport bosses are urging travellers to “prepare for security” following a spate of recent delays and hold-ups involving the terminal’s new £25 million security hall.

 Now airport chiefs are temporarily bringing in a dedicated family line to help parents and youngsters get through security and “make that part of the journey easier”.

And with the annual Edinburgh trades holiday kicking off next weekend, David Wilson, the airport’s chief operating officer, vowed staff would be “pulling out all the stops”.

He said: “Last month saw over one million passengers travel through the terminal – our busiest May on record and almost ten per cent up on last year.

Visit Stirling Castle – top tourist attraction

Stirling Castle is one of the top tourist attractions in central Scotland . The castle features the Royal Palace , the Great Hall and the castle.

Update – November

Stirling Castle has been named Scotland’s best visitor attraction at the inaugural 2016 Scottish and Outdoor Leisure Awards. The castle, which attracts about 460,000 visitors per year, beat competitors including Edinburgh Zoo and Dynamic Earth.

The castle’s executive manager Liz Grant said winning the award was a “wonderful achievement”.

She said: “Scotland’s heritage attractions, such as Stirling Castle, form an important part of the country’s wider tourism and leisure offering and it’s great to see this recognised.

“This accolade is made doubly special as it is initially voted for by members of the public and our visitors.”
If you go into the Great Hall you can take a seat at the top table and picture yourself as the King or Queen of Scotland .

‘ So let us pass … to the ports of Sterling ; where stands a beautiful and embellished Castle, elevated on the precipice of an impregnable rock , that commands the vallies ( as well as the town ) and all those habitable parts about it … ‘- Richard Franck , Northern Memoirs , 1656

 Stirling Castle is built on the volcanic rock high above the town. From the castle you can see Stirling Bridge and the Wallace Monument.

It has been said that whoever controlled Stirling castle controlled Scotland because of its strategic position.A Roman Fort, built on castle rock, was replaced by a new castle at the command of King Alexander I.At the end of the 13th century the castle was rebuilt in stone , because of its strategic importance and the protection it offered.

In 1297 the Scottish forces of William Wallace gathered at Stirling Bridge , in front of the castle ,and overcame the English in the most notorious defeat ever suffered by an English army. In 1313 Edward Bruce (brother of the would-be Scottish King) blockaded the fortress and forced King Edward II to meet King Robert The Bruce’s forces at Bannockburn. The heavily outnumbered Scottish forces inflicted a stunning defeat upon the English and the castle was surrendered to King Robert.

In 1452 Stirling was the site of the murder of William, 8th Earl of Douglas by King James II. A stained glass window bearing the Douglas Arms now overlooks “Douglas Garden.”

On the 9th of September 1543, the infant Mary , Queen of Scots , born in nearby Linlithgow Palace ,was crowned in the chapel royal at Stirling.

There are supposed to be over 1000 ghosts in Stirling Castle , the most famous of all being the Green Lady.
