Edinburgh Airport installs travel info pods

Two new interactive information terminals have been installed at Edinburgh Airport to help passengers plan their journeys.

The new Cityspace pods can be found at both domestic and international arrival halls, providing direct access to Traveline Scotland and BBC travel news.

Officials are keen that the new terminals are used by tourists eager to explore the historical capital.

Lois Proctor, planning and development executive at BAA Edinburgh, said: "Increasing the uptake of public transport is key to our growth plans and is central to the Airport Surface Access Strategy over the next five years."

Barry Smith, Co-founder and Business Development Director for Edinburgh based flight search engine, Skyscanner.net, commented on the new Cityspace Pods:

"Many of our staff and business partners use Edinburgh Airport on a daily basis, so it’s great to see these new technologies being introduced which will improve the customer experience and enable passengers to find out more about the beautiful city of Edinburgh".

Meanwhile, authorities at Edinburgh Airport have recently urged customers to be wary about what they decide to wear on flights, after a number of passengers have been found wearing replica weaponry jewelry.

"The last thing I want my officers to do is charge someone for being in possession of an offensive weapon," Inspector Gary Dickson of Lothian and Borders Police told the BBC.
