Very efficient and friendly staff working the security. United vendors were adequate. Great shops and food, but I couldn't find any T-Shirts!
I am from India and was travelling from Edinburgh to Stanstead, London and from London to New Delhi on June 13th. My flight was at 10:30 hrs by Ryan Air.
During the security check it was informed that we cant carry any liquids (perfumes, enamel cleaner, water above 100 ml)
I was carrying two bottles of water which was approx 450 ml which was asked to be thrown by the security authorities.
Please note Access to water is a basic human right and not allowing the same lead me to a dehydration due to the hot climate . The airport had no water coolers, one could have an access only at the convenience stores where one would need to pay GBP -2.20 approx.
Before boarding and post boarding the flight (RYAN AIR) there was no water which one could assess. The air hostess also confirmed that there was no water to be served.
I also had to throw my used Deodorants as they were above 100 ml. I also had bought small gift items i.e perfmes which were thrown by the Security and Ryan Air personnel.
I lost about GBP 50 POUNDS worth items due to this sad affair In case there are security issues, pasengers should be allowed free cabi check in baggage. It s a sad affair to express a country which has been claiming about rich heritage, tourism and a one of top places to visit on variou tourist site doesnt have basic human right to offer to its tourist i.e water.
A very sad affair to express that it has been more tahn 48 hours I have returned but the bitter feelings still lies within that the airport had a ruthless way to behave to its customers.
Hope this feedback will be taken on a serious note.
Time goes on so quick
Fantastic, beautiful and confortable. Very good
No visible lines to guide. No one out to direct. Had no idea where to go to check-in
Out of every airport I use, Edinburgh has the longest and slowest security queues
“The Edinburgh Airport was a wonderful experience. It was the perfect ending to a perfect vacation in Scotland. The airport was easy to navigate. Every employee we encountered was friendly and helpful. Lastly, the airport was bright and clean. I can't wait to visit again!!”
“Lots and comfortable seating, great selection of catering outlets. Could do with a few more power points available, especially if you are spending a longer period of time with delayed flights etc. Free Wi-Fi is great for the two hours.”
“The men's toilets in the international arrivals were embarrassing to say the least. They looked as if they have been built in some kind of temporary hut? Freezing cold and stinking of urine. Are they actually regularly cleaned? If so, then someone needs to take a serious look at the Cleaning staff performance or the plumbing, as something is definitely not working properly.
The car parking facilities are inadequate. Surely another multi storey car park is required.
The cost for parking for 1-2 hours is an absolute rip off.
The layout of the international check in area is a joke.
Hardly any space for queuing and people trying to proceed with their luggage and trolleys to different parts of the airport.
The immigration part of the international departures was the worst I've ever seen at any international airport I've been to.
Very cramped with the staff shouting at the top of their voices telling customers what to do.
One of your staff should try queuing and passing through this area as a customer, as I think u would be quite surprised with the operation.
My wife accidentally forgot to lift her tray off the conveyor belt after her hand luggage had been scanned, and was told very aggressively by a male member of staff to get her tray off the conveyor belt.
I approached the gentleman and told him to calm down.
His aggressive response was "what did you say to me, do you have a problem"?
I just walked away and wouldn't rise to his confrontational attitude.
Overall a very disappointing experience.
The next time I visit Edinburgh, I will fly with Emirates and will arrive at Glasgow airport.”
“There doesn't seem to be a flow to the airport you have go to one side to do one thing then to another then upstairs to departure lounge.
When we arrived back into Edinburgh was a complete shambles the plane parked quite far away from the arrivals we had to then all squash into buses after being cramped on a flight furthermore we then got to UK border and the queue was literally out the doors. Took us at least 30 minutes to scan our passports through even then people didn't know where they were going which queue to go into staff quite happily stood and watched. Thus I believe held up the rest of passengers. The scanner machines took longer than expected also. Overall for the capital city airport would expect it to be more organised and flowing than it was.”
