Fast track service planned

Pay £5 to skip queue at Edinburgh airport

Edinburgh AirportPassengers arriving at Edinburgh Airport will be able to pay £5 to skip passport queues.

The fast track service has been devised to ease congestion and follows the priority security lane for departures, which costs £4.49.

An airport spokesman said: “We look forward to being able to offer our overseas passengers and returning UK based passengers an even smoother arrival into Scotland.”

The airport has increased Border Force staff but also wants to introduce its own measures to cut queues as passengers using it continue to grow rapidly.

It has been expanding at 10% a year and is expected to see 12 million pass through this year.

However, the fast track service has drawn criticism from those who believe more effort should be made to improve the flow of all passengers and ease bottlenecks.
