    AIRLINK coach is the best and only option to consider to get into the city centre (30mins). £6 for return trip, free wifi onboard the coach and plug sockets to charge your phone too. Perfect.

    Get the tram into the city centre. Cheap, fast, frequent and clean.

    The new security hall works quite well if you're not an idiot and move your bins to the repack-and-sort-yourself-out tables after the scanners. Be proactive!

    Scottish security is the best. So easy to get through. And I'm saying this even after they searched my backpack.

    make sure you have plenty money if you are taking your car as the pickup and drop off charges are attrocious. £4 for 10 minutes to drop someone off..unless they can do a ten minute walk

    Looking for that valuable power source to charge your phone? Cafe Nero in the middle of departures have plenty of sockets.

    Use the tram if you can - clean, efficient and you can even pop to The Gyle for shopping!

    They want you to pay to use a locker to charge your phone. No thank you. You can usually find an outlet behind a rubbish bin. You have to sit on the floor, but better than paying £1.50 for 30 mins.

    To avoid the scandalous £1 fee (£5 after 10 mins) to drop off / pick up, use the FREE dropoff area. Keep to the left lane, and take the first left after you pass the Spitfire. Almond Road. Read more

    Take the new "metro tram" to downtown Edinburgh. Only 5£ for the entire trip (end to end).

    Domestic arrivals is probably the worst you will find in the UK. First you have to fight your way through the entire departure lounge, then 3 flights of stairs - no escalators.

    Incredibly illogically laid out, made to walk miles for what should be shortest of journeys. Overly commercialised, inadequate seating. Dictatorial staff. Dreadful security area. Worst airport in UK

    Good prices on Whisky...better than in town. Reference price of Johnny Walker Blue Label £200 /l or €162/70cl.

    Airline service to the city centre is amazing! Always two waiting outside the airport, leave every few minutes and only 6 pounds return!

    Greatly improved airport overall. Easyjet self-tagging for bag drop is shocking. No queue management whatsoever.

    Early flight into EDI? Grab a coffee before leaving to collect your bag to save queuing at the Costa in arrivals. Is worth the wait though. Fast service

    Total chaos. Signs incorrectly direct you (eg the international arrivals area 1 and 2, they both point out into the street when they are at opposite ends of the building).

    Eat have great breakfast. Yo Sushi for for everything else. Bookshop is WAY overpriced but that’s not a surprise to anyone.

    Body scanners now actively seeking out Middle Aged white business men to balance out their profiling of young Asian men. Quite amusing.

    If you're travelling with unprocessed film, you should know they can be safely examined by x-ray machines without suffering ill effects.(It was previously advised to check them in).

    Wow. Security was some sort of fantasy of efficiency. Points off though for the officious way I was selected for "random" security screening. Boarding the plane felt like a prisoner transfer.

    There is nothing good at all about this airport. If you use it once you probably won’t notice if you use it regularly you’ll quickly despise it!

    City link bus every 30mins to and from central Glasgow directly outside main terminal- good service.

    The security staff are so rude; definitely in need of training in interpersonal and communication skills. They created a real sour end to our trip to Scotland.

    EAT is the best value place for breakfast here. Prices same as their High St shops and good service. No rip offs. Only £1.40 for big cup of tea.

    Edinburgh Airport makes flying a truly miserable experience whether you are arriving or departing, it’s all equally bad.

    Airlink is the quickest way into town for £6 return but normal Lothian Buses although not as frequent are only £3 for a whole day of use and give you the ability to travel all over Edinburgh

    EDI has only 1 terminal. Checking in and bag drop is slower - fewer counters. Security screening flags lot of bags but most times nothing is found. Arrive early! Lounge is very average.

    The £1 drop off charge is a nice wee indicator of the contempt which this airport has for you :)

    I managed to miss the bag drop-off whence in a hurry. Not so neatly planned. No big board to find your way. Otherwise nice.

    Have ever seen a more ridiculous security check? They have totalled over engineered it which make it actually slower.
