‘Kiss and fly’ raises £1.3m

Have your say

EDINBURGH Airport’s controversial “kiss and fly” charge has reaped nearly £1.3 million in its first year of operation.

The airport said 1.2m vehicles had used the new drop-off zone outside the terminal.

While most have paid the basic £1 charge for ten minutes’ parking, more than 9000 shelled out up to £7 for staying up to one hour and more than 100 paid at least £16 after remaining for more than an hour, taking total income from the charges to £1.296m.
