Edinburgh Airport unveils £50m facilities expansion plan
January 22 2015
Work on the phased development will begin this week for delivery over the next five years in order to accommodate a growing number of larger long-haul flights, necessitating the construction of new aircraft stands and air bridges.
A temporary Archial Norr designed 2,000sq/m ‘rapid-build’ immigration hall will be built by June as part of the first phase of works, around which a bigger structure will be built by 2020. An architect has yet to be appointed for successive phases.
Prime minister David Cameron, who toured the airport ahead of work commencing, said: "The expansion of Edinburgh Airport is great news for Scotland and for the whole of the UK. It will open the door to more long-haul flights and new routes, meaning more tourism, more trade and more jobs for people here in Edinburgh and beyond.
The work follows delivery of a new terminal extension delivered last year.
