Edinburgh Airport’s pick up and drop off area to be redeveloped

An impression of how the redeveloped zone will look

A £1.6 million redevelopment of Edinburgh Airport’s pick up and drop off area is to signal the start of a multi-million pound investment plan to improve passenger experience.

The area, which is found on the ground floor of the airport’s multi-storey car park, is to be redesigned to provide a ‘simpler, safer, and more modern’ experience for those who use it.

It comes as part of a wider £6 million programme of surface access improvements across the airport campus, which Edinburgh Airport said signals its intention to continue to improve its facilities and provide the best possible experience for passengers.

Gail Taylor, director of retail and property at Edinburgh Airport, said, “These improvement works are the most significant we’ve undertaken since the pandemic, marking an important step in our recovery as we invest in a host of areas to create the best passenger experience. The transformation of this zone will lead to a brighter, safer, and more user-friendly area which will benefit passengers.

“Works have been carefully planned to take place out with peak periods and although it will mean there are some temporary changes, we hope passengers agree with the improvements we’re making and we thank them for their patience.”
