Terminal Information – Departing

This is only a guideline. Always check your boarding pass for up-to-date terminal information.

Edinburgh Airport is Scotland's busiest airport. Check-in is on the ground-floor level, with security and the departure lounge upstairs. There are plenty of places to shop and eat in the departure lounge, but look out for long queues at the coffee shops if you're boarding the red-eye. Shops in the departure lounge include Thinking Scotland, WH Smith, Accessorize and a huge Superdrug. There's an Aerospa where you can indulge in 15 minute treatments and an art gallery showcasing work by local artists. Free Wi-Fi (courtesy of Skyscanner) is available throughout the departure hall. Edinburgh Airport has two lounges that passengers on all airlines can use, regardless of ticket class. They're run by Aspire and No.1 Traveller. Lounges offer a comfortable place to relax away from the general hubbub, along with a selection of complimentary refreshments. You can pay to access the lounge on the day, or book in advance via Edinburgh Airport's website.
