Arriving in from Beijing as CA571. Due in at 11:20 and currently just near Stavanger and about to head over the North Sea. B777-300ER (B-2039) is operating.

Very True, We have to start somewhere and build on it 🙂

Also routes resuming today (Friday July 3rd):

• EasyJet resume 2x weekly Amsterdam (this is their first international route from EDI in months).
• Ryanair Resume:
• 2x weekly Bologna
• 2x weekly Eindhoven
• 2x weekly Gothenburg
• 2x weekly Baden
• 1x weekly Lanzarote
• 2x weekly Marseille
• 3x weekly Milan Bergamo
• 2x weekly Poznan
• 2x weekly Tenerife South
• 2x weekly Toulouse


I think the final Ryanair resumptions are over the weekend (except Bydgoszcz, Malta and Stockholm Skavsta which will be in Mid July and August). Then they will be operating to every destination on a reduced schedule.


EasyJet have moved forward the planned start date of many international routes so most now resume from mid July at a reduced frequency.

Overall looking positive as we go forward.

To be fair, people have been posting much the same information from several other airports.

I'm wondering how many of these routes will be viable. I can understand the Med routes- many people will own property which they wish to visit. But I'm doubtful about the demand for places like Eindhoven or Dusseldorf. And Sweden?

Well if people only post in here when a plane takes off from Edinburgh going backwards, it'll be a very quiet forum ;-)

Actually NO!!

Good to hear what routes are restarting, which are reduced or AWOL.

Not going to be many new routes for a while to post about so what would you rather see here, nothing at all I suspect.

If Nicola doesn’t back down from her political position of not following England in changing the quarantine rules, it will further decimate Scottish inbound tourism (or NCL will be unexpectedly busy)

Hardly each single single aircraft. People are posting about the resumption specific of routes

Many routes in many airports are now never restarting so all good positivity.

Slight over reaction old bean, calm down

She's merely insisting that due process be followed. A concept with which the Westminster government seems unfamiliar.

More like positioning to demand an independence vote. Personally, as an expatriate Scot living in SE England I wish she’d just get on with it and declare UDI. Better not hijack the EDI thread with politics but my point still stands - she needs to move on quarantine or Scottish tourism will be even worse affected than it is now.

She's being tedious - it has nothing to do with CV-19 and everything about Independence. I wonder how she's like it if BoJo insisted everyone traveling to./from Scotland had to self quarantine until she lifts the restrictions?

Why would she care about what Boris does within the area of the UK he has say over health matters?

For what it's worth I, as one of her supporters, do not see this as being about independence. However, I absolutely do think she's being far too cautious and it will hit us harder further down the line with more job losses and all the social and economical issues that come with mass unemployment in our tourism and aviation sectors. That said, the list of countries approved by Boris is as bizarre as it is diverse. Why is Turkey on there when it's not deemed safe for the rest of the EU, for example? Why is Lithuania on there, but not Estonia and Latvia whom have all enjoyed a tri-lateral travel bubble for weeks now?

I am glad she is not just accepting the list at face value and is going to hold back from a decision for now (as are Wales and NI) but she should definitely be opening up to some countries to at least get the planes moving again and some jobs protected.

Judging by posts #1938 and #1944 the planes are moving anyway!?

What a ridiculous couple of posts. It is very interesting to see which routes are resuming given the unprecedented shut down. Stick to the Glasgow thread if it annoys you.
