Edinburgh Airport shares a parking guide and how to get to each one


Edinburgh Airport has released new advice on how to get to each of its car parks ahead of a busy summer season.

As people across Scotland prepare to take off and enjoy the sunshine over the next few months, the most important aspect of any trip is making sure you get to the airport on time.

Many Scots will not be on vacation since before the pandemic and so may not remember their way around Edinburgh Airport.

To avoid confusion, the airport has mapped each of its car parks in a new guide.

Here’s an overview of each Edinburgh Airport car park and how to get there, with maps from its website.

Fast Park

The FastPark facility reopened earlier this month, after being used as an ExpressTest Covid-19 testing site at the start of the pandemic.

Self-service valet parking is intended to provide a convenient option for travelers who just want to get to the airport and start their vacation without worrying about where to park.

Edinburgh Airport says: “Basically if you are coming from Glasgow Road onto Eastfield Road, you go straight over the roundabout by the Moxy and DoubleTree by Hilton hotels, before turning left at the roundabout at next to Hampton by Hilton on Jubilee Road.

“Follow the road past the Edinburgh Airport Tower and signs will direct you to FastPark. It’s as simple as that.”

Multi-storey car park

The multi-storey car park is the closest to the airport and is therefore perfect for those who prefer not to spend a lot of time getting from their car to the terminal.

It even has a second-floor bridge that leads directly to the security halls accessible to passengers who have booked the fastTRACK service.

On its website, the airport says: “Think back to our FastPark instructions. You do the exact same thing, but rather than turn left at the Hampton by Hilton roundabout, you go straight ahead and follow the road past the terminal car park and in the multi-storey .

“You won’t miss it because, well, it’s a multi-story building.”

The terminal car park is another good choice for those who value convenience, as it is a short walk from the check-in counters.

Edinburgh Airport said: “As we’ve touched on before, it’s basically just opposite the multi-decker if you look at it from the road. Just past the Hampton by Hilton roundabout you’ll find this car park.”

Mid-stay parking

For travelers who don’t mind parking a little farther away to save money, the mid-stay parking lot might be your best bet.

However, as parking here will require a bit of a walk to the terminal, it is not recommended for some passengers with limited mobility.

As stated by Edinburgh Airport: “If you are driving down Eastfield Road, you turn right at the roundabout next to the Moxy and DoubleTree by Hilton and onto Eastfield Avenue. Follow the road and turn left at the next roundabout to Gogar Bridge Road and it will take you halfway through the stay.”

Long-term parking

The furthest car park from the terminal, as its name suggests, the long-term car park is recommended for those who are away for four days or more.

It will take you about eight to ten minutes on foot to check in from here.

The airport said: “Located on the other side of the mid-stay car park. The directions are pretty much the same, the only difference is you go right at the roundabout across the tram tracks at the end of Eastfield Avenue rather than to the left.”
