The airport said the queue was longer than normal because three US-bound flights were delayed, so there was a surge of passengers heading to security at once after the flights' check-ins opened.

Due to a busy summer season, Edinburgh Airport are now sharing updates on security queue waiting times four times a day.

The airport posted an update on Twitter at 1pm, which read: “Well, after a sudden surge earlier we’re happy to say we're now back to between 1-20 minutes.

Security is flowing well, but please remember to prepare in advance.”

In March, Edinburgh Airport asked customers for “patience and understanding”, as bosses anticipated a surge in demand and staffing shortages would cause disruption.
