New and returning routes

Edinburgh Airport will welcome a host of exciting new routes in the coming months with demand for travel set to soar.

Travel rules changed on 11 February 2022 and we're looking forward to seeing many passengers return as they jet off to take that long-awaited holiday.

Some hugely-popular routes are returning, while others will be operating for the very first time.

  • After its launch in 2021 seats are now on sale for Virgin Atlantic’s twice weekly Barbados route back for winter 2022/23.

  • For those heading Stateside, United Airlines will be returning with direct flights to New York Newark in March before Washington D.C and Chicago are added two months later. Delta Airlines will also resume flights to New York JFK and Boston while Virgin Atlantic will service the hugely-popular holiday destination Orlando.

  • In May, Air Canada will begin running daily flights to Toronto, joined by WestJet heading to the same destination from June.

  • Passengers dreaming of a trip to Turkey can now fly to Dalaman – in addition to Istanbul and Antalya – courtesy of Turkish Airlines. SunExpress will also operate its first route to Antalya.

  • Other brilliant new destinations include Palermo, Marrakesh, Bari and Santiago de Compostela, while Jet2.com are introducing Izmir, Skiathos, Santorini and Preveza to their summer 2022 schedule.

Travel restrictions

The Scottish Government decides on and manages restrictions and requirements for international travel and we advise all passengers to read and understand what is required of them ahead of travel. You can read more on the Scottish Government's website by clicking here.  

Additional information and advice

As ever, we recommend all passengers continue to check with their airline for latest flight information and any specific travel requirements they have.

We recommend passengers also check the requirements of their destination country ahead of travel.

Governments at home and abroad regularly review their travel policies, and so it is important to check any local rules or restrictions before you travel.
