Airport takes top spot
The 21 per cent growth, from 2015-2016, at Edinburgh topped the Luton top spot in the table of UK airports above one million international passengers.
The airport’s chief executive, Gordon Dewar, said: “We have a healthy equilibrium of inbound and outbound passengers with the most balanced mix of any UK airport outside London.
“The blend of increasing long haul routes, the enhanced choice to destinations across Europe and an unrivalled range of services to London and domestic locations has proved to be a winning combination.”
Edinburgh Airport now has more than 200 routes on sale.
