When it’s finally time for that holiday, getting to the airport on time is a must! The good news is that Edinburgh airport is accessible through a number of transport methods. To help you plan your journey, here is a quick guide to the ways you can get there.
Train: There’s no individual train station at Edinburgh airport, so your best option is to travel to the city centre and then catch one of the two regular bus routes directly to the airport. There are two main stations in the centre: Edinburgh Haymarket and Edinburgh Waverley.
Coach: National Express run a number of coach services from all over Scotland, Wales and England. They don’t stop at the airport itself, but at a number of nearby destinations including Edinburgh City Centre and Corstorphine.
Bus: A number of regular bus services run between Edinburgh City Centre and the airport. The number 100 is a 24 hour bus shuttle to take passengers to the airport, running every 10 minutes in peak times and every 30 minutes at other times.
Taxi: These are the most convenient way to reach the airport, by picking you up from your door and taking you right to the entrance. Many taxis offer special airport transfer rates.
Whichever method you take, if you’re travelling between the airport and the city centre, you should allow thirty minutes for your journey.
