Taxi drop-off and pick-up

Just a 20 minute drive from the city centre, and with easy access to some of Scotland's major motorways, Edinburgh Airport is easily accessible by taxi.

If you’re arriving at the airport, find a taxi or a private hire vehicle in our East Terminus facility located just across the plaza from the main terminal.

You can also arrange to be dropped off or collected in our charged or free pickup and dropoff zones.
