Century up at Edinburgh

Thu, 01 Nov, 2007

Staff at Edinburgh Airport are celebrating reaching the 100 destination mark after Flyglobespan revealed it is to commence flying from the Scottish capital to the Croatian city of Dubrovnik.

The weekly service to Dubrovnik, which is scheduled to start next year, is the 29th new route out of Edinburgh to be announced since the start of 2007.

As a result, Edinburgh Airport is now the busiest in Scotland and, according to its managing director David Johnston, the one best placed to satisfy customer demand.

"These links are hugely important for our leisure passengers, who tell us they want to be able to fly direct from their local airport, as well as for … business travellers," said Mr Johnston.

Among the other new routes to have opened from Edinburgh Airport this year are daily easyJet flights to the French capital Paris and a once a day Clickair service to the Catalan capital Barcelona.
