Where to meet
Edinburgh Airport does not have an official meeting point but many passengers find the airport information desk in International Arrivals (including ROI) or the Onward Travel information desk in UK arrivals convenient points to meet friends and relatives. There are also Costa cafès in both domestic and international arrivals areas, ideal for meeting travellers from their journey
Meeting someone from a flight
Before you leave
If you're meeting someone at the airport, check the flight is on time before you leave using our live flight arrivals page.
For directions to the airport by car, train or bus, visit our to and from the airport section.
Picking up at the airport
If you're picking someone up by car, follow signs for the Short Stay Car Park on the airport approach road and park your vehicle in any available spaces within either the Short Stay Car Park or the upper levels of the multi-storey car park.
The ground floor of the multi-storey car park is now available only for a new premium FastTrack business parking which includes access to Security Xpress.

- Landed: The flight has arrived but passengers have yet to clear passport control (where necessary) and pick up baggage.
- Baggage in hall: Passengers should be in the arrivals area shortly.
