Find the cheapest flight to Edinburgh

Edinburgh Airport (airport code EDI), the eighth largest airport in the UK, is located about eight miles from the city center of the capital city of Scotland. It’s owned by the same company that owns Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted in London as well as Glasgow International. Glasgow’s airport is currently Scotland’s largest, but Edinburgh is planning an expansion which could make it surpass Glasgow. To get to Edinburgh, chances are very good you’ll be flying through another major hub in Europe (probably London). If you have more time than money to spend on travel, you could try getting a round-trip ticket to London and then purchasing a separate ticket on a budget carrier like easyJet or Ryanair to get you to Edinburgh.

More Information on Edinburgh

Scotland’s capital, Edinburgh, is a vibrant mix of old and new. From its hilltop castle and historic Royal Mile to its lively nightlife and fabulous modern restaurants, Edinburgh has much to offer the traveler. Visit during the summer to take in the famous Military Tattoo or the Fringe Festival (and several more festivals besides), or avoid the crowds and brave winter’s blustery weather. Edinburgh is a great city to visit any time of year, even if you’re forced indoors by the rain. And while you’re there, you can attempt to master the pronunciation of the city’s name. It’s not as easy as it looks.
