Edinburgh Airport's chief executive said it is coping with a surge in passengers, as April marked the terminal’s busiest period since before the pandemic.
Almost one million people travelled through the capital’s airport last month, as many took advantage of eased coronavirus restrictions to take their first trips since early 2020.
Edinburgh Airport had previously warned about the potential for queues as a surge in demand and difficulty finding staff combined, but it said 97.1% of passengers passed through security within 15 minutes.
Chief executive Gordon Dewar said it was “brilliant to welcome passengers back to the airport and see so many happy faces as people set off to reunite with family and friends”.
