Edinburgh Airport is Scotland’s busiest and the UK’s sixth busiest airport with more than 30 airlines serving over 100 destinations worldwide. The airport reported more than 13.4 million passengers in 2017, recording it's busiest year in history. It has been the third successive year where the airport reported a year on year increase of over 1 million passengers travelling via the airport.

The airport is highly regarded as an entrepreneurial business that is committed to offering a market leading proposition to airlines and passengers and is focused on a commercial strategy that incentivises growth.
To support future commercial growth Edinburgh Airport continues to invest in its asset base, with major programmes underway to increase stand capacity, expand the terminal building and provide additional operational capacity in baggage, check-in, security and immigration.
From a broader perspective, studies show that the airport contributes almost £1 billion to the Scottish economy every year and supports more than 23,000 jobs across Scotland.
Edinburgh Airport’s principal shareholder is Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP) which is an independent private equity investor combining industry sector expertise with best practice industrial management.
