Airline executives from Edinburgh are attending a forum in Abu Dhabi in a bid to win more routes for the Capital.

The World Routes Forum is the planet’s largest aviation event, bringing together 3000 bosses from 750 airports and 300 airlines.

Gordon Dewar, managing director of Edinburgh Airport, said: “They want to find routes that are commercially sustainable and it’s our job to convince them that Scotland – and in my case Edinburgh Airport – has got the best offer. Edinburgh’s got fantastic tourism, business and cultural links that people want to come for.”
