FI

Another one to watch perhaps? Play entering the Glasgow market at the end of May. Icelandair do have slots at EDI for a daily service. A number of contributors on a Glasgow forum suggesting that FI moving along the M8 is a likely outcome.

Icelandair have no slots held at EDI nor an outstanding request. They cancelled them.

Great news indeed. I wonder if the much rumoured aircraft upgrade on the IAD route will materialise? Will DL respond in some way?

Contextually for Scotland, it's the reinstatement of GLA-EWR to er....another airport 🏃‍♂️

The momentum and appetite to do business in the east is impressive! Well done EDI.

Iíve heard the rumour that IAD will be changed to a 787. Will it happen? Absolutely no idea!

Wow, fantastic news. I stay over in the west and despite this coming at our expense, it's great to see! There's a huge amount of capacity from the US to Edinburgh in the summer but hopefully this shows that the demand is there.

​​​​​​I know Edinburgh is very seasonal but it would be great to see EWR upgauged to a 767 when it drops down to once daily in the winter, or even better bringing ORD or IAD year round. Wishful thinking perhaps for this winter but it's early days.

TK - Easter 23

Turkish starting to make some aircraft changes for the up-coming Easter getaway. 1st April, A333 operating. More to follow I suspect given the price of economy seats on certain dates.

Looks like that's the second daily Newark flights are now on sale. First one leaves Newark on 25 May, last one leaves Edinburgh on 29 September.

Departs Newark at 11:50pm and arrives at 11:40amDeparts Edinburgh at 1:30pm and arrives at 4:10pm

Did the last summer double daily EWR stop because of or before covid?

Before covid. From memory dropped to daily when UA started IAD route in 2018.

UA flights from EDI to the US have been performing so well they have added the second EWR back in alongside IAD and ORD.

Already removed from sale. Looks like it was loaded in error.

US Pre-Clearance

As mentioned by other contributors, EDI do appear to be pushing ahead with a genuine attempt to obtain US Pre-Clearance. S25 is the suggested start time if they succeed. Finance is in place for the application with detailed plans being drawn up for a redevelopment of the terminal to house the TSA area.

What's the financial benefit to the airport in doing this? With the best will in the world the terminal is already way too small for the traffic it handles in summer.

I assume this is why plans is being drawn up to redevelop or extend the current terminal. £5 million has been allocated for the next stage of the application. Any extension or redevelopment of the terminal would clearly cost way more.
