 Two additional aircraft will be based at Edinburgh Airport for summer 2022, increasing the fleet to 10, five of which will be Boeing 737 8-200 “Gamechanger” aircraft which have four per cent more seats, burn 16 per cent less fuel and create 40 per cent less noise emissions.

Ryanair said it represented an investment of over a billion euros and would support 300 highly-paid aviation jobs and 3,000 indirect jobs at Edinburgh airport, including 60 new jobs associated with the extra aircraft and around new 500 indirect jobs.

It said the expanded summer operation would give holidaymakers an abundance of choice to top European destinations in Greece, Spain, Italy, and Croatia and also give Scottish tourism a much-needed boost after two lost summers.

And Ryanair combined the announcement with a call to the UK government to scrap Airport Passenger Duty (APD) immediately for all travel saying that while the proposed cut is a step in the right direction, it is simply not enough.

New drop off charge at Edinburgh Airport

A £4 flat-fee will be introduced for drop-offs and pick-ups at Edinburgh Airport from November 9, which means taxis dropping off in a new ten minute window will now pay £2 , while those picking up passengers within 15 minutes will pay £4 instead of £5 .

Bosses at Edinburgh Airport claim they have been forced to make the changes in response to financial challenges of the coronavirus pandemic which could mean losses of £60 million this year.

Airport transfers to Edinburgh Airport from Falkirk can be booked on 0800-6190575. Airport transfers Falkirk offer a 24/7 service all year round and can be booked on Whatsapp +447576127097 / 0800-6190575.

But chairman of the Unite Edinburgh cab branch, Scott Blair, fears taxi drivers will not be able to recoup the £2 extra charge as they are fixed to a tariff lasting 18 months which was set at Edinburgh City Council’s sub-licensing committee in March.

Once more Edinburgh Airport is fleecing the airport taxis they rely on to bring customers to the airport .
