Edinburgh Airport (EDI) terminal

Airport terminals are the sections - sometimes different buildings - that make it possible for air passengers to travel between the areas for boarding and disembarking from the plane and ground transport. It's very important to check which terminal you are leaving from or transferring through, as terminals in larger airports might be far from each other and passengers can need additional time to get to the right one. Edinburgh Airport has 1 Terminal.

Terminal 1 – Air France, British Airways, easyJet, Jet2.com, Ryanair and others

Getting from Edinburgh Airport to city centre

It might be a challenge to find the most comfortable way to get to the city centre when visiting a destination for the very first time. Public transportation isn’t always accessible directly from the terminals and taxis at the airport are often pricey. Our recommendation is to check all transport possibilities before the flight to make sure you choose the best option for your trip.
