Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said:

“The strong growth in our international market has managed to offset the domestic market as we still experience an impact from the removal of the Stansted route. It also shows that continued desire to see the world and visit Edinburgh.

“It is promising to see that growth continue as we know that we are facilitate many things both in Scotland and across the world, be that tourism, business, education, research and culture. We need to directly connect Scotland to the world so we can continue to be that bridge, and do so in a manner which is sustainable and for the benefit of everyone.”
