Thu, 30 Apr, 2009

Edinburgh Airport has gained new flights to Germany and Norway.

Ryanair will run the services, which include a brand new route to Haugesund in the Nordic country.

The frequency of trips to Bremen will also increase as part of the move by the budget airline.

BBC News has reported that the new Scandinavian service will go twice a week from July and could increase the number of passengers passing through the Scottish facility by 45,000.

Norway's tourist board advises that the city is a "good starting point" for trekking to the local mountains and the Lysefjord.

A film festival also takes place at the destination every year.

Those driving to the Edinburgh's hub are advised that it is located about eight miles to the west of the city centre and is close to the M8 and M9 motorways.

Airport parking is available - input the postcode EH12 9DN to find out the best route for you.
