Edinburgh named UK Airport of the Year

Posted 12 October 2018 · Add Comment

Edinburgh Airport has been named Airport of the Year at the National Transport Awards in London.



Scotland’s busiest airport saw off competition from five other airports to win the award at the awards ceremony which is in its 18th year.

It comes after Edinburgh Airport was named Scottish Airport of the Year at the Scottish Transport Awards in June.

Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport, Gordon Dewar said: “This is another excellent reward for everyone at the airport and comes just a few months after we were named Scottish Airport of the Year so to be recognised at both a Scottish and UK level is a fantastic achievement.

“We’ve just had our busiest ever summer, we’ve opened our terminal expansion to improve the passenger experience and this year looks like eclipsing 2017 as our busiest ever year so there is a lot to be positive about at the moment.

“And that is all made possible by the Team Edinburgh staff who work incredibly hard throughout the year to make everyday a big day for someone at our airport. From airlines to engineers, baristas to security and maintenance teams, we all work to the same goal of providing passengers with choice and a positive experience, and each play a role in delivering an airport which flies to more destinations than any other Scottish airport and provides connections to cities across the world.

“I thank everyone across the campus for their role in making us Airport of the Year in Scotland and across the UK.”
