Travelling to and from the airports

Flights from Amsterdam

Cool canal-side cafes and shopping, unbeatable nightlife, Rembrandt and Van Gogh, make Amsterdam a magnet for tourists year-round. The main airport that serves the city and area is Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. Low-cost airlines operate services from Schiphol and a range of cheap flights to Edinburgh from Amsterdam leave from there. Amsterdam Airport Schiphol dates back to 1916 when it was a mere landing strip and a wooden hut. Nowadays, it is not only Amsterdam's main airport, but it is also one of the largest intercontinental airports in the world, with six runways and flight connections to most cities across the globe.

Travel to Amsterdam airport

Regular flights from Amsterdam to Edinburgh leave from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. The airport is about nine miles from the city centre off the A4 motorway. The airport is connected by trains that run from Amsterdam Central Station (in about 15-20 minutes). The train station is located directly beneath the airport. Buses also run between the city centre and the airport. You can take the 197 Airport Express bus from the city centre, as well as the 310 from the south of Amsterdam, 69 from Amsterdam Sloterdijk and 300 from Amsterdam Bijlmer ArenA. There is short and long stay parking close to the terminal and a drop-off zone in front of the terminal.

Arriving in Edinburgh

Whether its history and culture you are looking for, or good local food and laugh out loud comedy shows, there's plenty to see and do in Edinburgh. A stroll around Edinburgh's UNESCO-listed medieval centre, the Golden Mile, reveals a wealth of historical landmarks, such as Mary King's Close, the Palace of Holyroodhouse and St Giles' Cathedral. You can then take a tour of Edinburgh Castle overlooking the city for splendid views. Whether you want to buy traditional Scottish attire or something contemporary, head to Princes Street for high street fashion or Multrees Walk for designer goods. The city has a thriving restaurant scene, cooking up treats from classic dishes like haggis to modern fusion cuisine.
