Airport is pick of bunch

Have your say

EDINBURGH Airport has been voted the best in Europe in its size for the second year in a row.

The Capital’s flight hub was named “Best European airport: 5m-10m passengers” at the eighth Annual Airports Council International awards in Madrid.

The airport, which changed hands this month in an £807.2 million deal, was given the award for its focus on its customer base and the responses to the feedback that they provide.

Edinburgh held off competition from Cologne, Birmingham, Luton, Nice, Marseille and Milan to hold on to the title.

Chief executive Jim O’Sullivan, said: “This is an outstanding achievement. The team at Edinburgh airport is dedicated, focused and deserving of this accolade.”
