Our Airlink service welcomes one millionth airport boarder

We're celebrating at Edinburgh Airport today

We are at Edinburgh Airport today, 5 December 2017, celebrating the one-millionth Edinburgh Airport boarder for 2017 onto our Airlink service. Our team are there handing out surprise Airlink return tickets and airport shopping vouchers to customers.

Nigel Serafini, Commercial Director of Lothian said:

Over the last few years, we have invested significantly in Airlink 100, including a fleet of new low emission vehicles for the route and the latest contactless payment technology. We are delighted to hit this milestone in our operation for 2017 and look forward to continuing to provide a first class service for residents and visitors to our city.

Gordon Robertson, Director of Communications at Edinburgh Airport, said:

We’ve worked closely with Lothian to provide reliable and efficient bus services that make it as easy as possible to get to or from Scotland’s busiest airport. Recent investment also means passengers are benefitting from things like live updates on their flights and contactless payment and these fantastic usage figures demonstrate the continued success of this route.

We carry around 3,000 customers a day from the airport into the city. Airlink is operated by a team of sixty dedicated drivers and a fleet of fifteen specially designed vehicles.  It provides Edinburgh Airport with a 24/7 operation 365 days a year. Our Airlink vehicles are fitted to a high specification offering contactless payment technology, free WIFI, next stop audio/visual announcements including British Sign language, and live on-board flight departure information and security waiting times.

If you are heading to Edinburgh, why not give it a try.
