Terminal Information – Arriving

Edinburgh Airport only has one terminal, and from here it’s easy to find onward transportation into the city centre. There are two taxi ranks; one for black cabs and the other for private hire cars. There are two public buses which you can take into the city centre: the Airlink 100 is the faster of the two which also offers free wifi onboard. The 35 is the slower alternative however it is significantly cheaper than the Airlink. Another fast option is the tram which takes you straight into the centre of town and also offers complimentary wifi.

Practical Information

You don’t need to bring your passport with you when you’re flying within the UK. Some form of official photographic ID is required, so bring your driving license instead.

There are printers in the check-in area of Bristol Airport, so there’s no need to panic if you forget to print your boarding pass. If you have a smartphone you can use the easyJet app. Your boarding card is stored electronically on your phone, security can scan the e-barcode, and you don’t need to worry about paper at all.

We recommend giving yourself plenty of time at the airport, so try not to arrive any later than one hour before your flight is due to depart. Queues at security are longer at weekends and during school holidays, so it’s worth giving yourself some extra time.
