Edinburgh Airport, Scotland, has launched a new chauffeur service that collects passengers directly from the runway.
Working with Edinburgh Executive Carriages (EEC), domestic passengers can be met by their driver at the foot of the plane steps before being taken to their waiting vehicle and off to their hotel, golf course or business meeting.
The service is for domestic passengers with hand luggage only and bookings must be made a minimum of 48 hours in advance.
Gail Taylor, director of retail and property at Edinburgh Airport, said, “We are always looking to improve our passenger experience and make changes or introduce things that make traveling that little bit easier and more comfortable for people, and the introduction of this chauffeur service brings that extra element.
Paul Scott, chief executive of Edinburgh Executive Carriages, said, “We’re delighted to be able to offer our tailored service to passengers at Scotland’s busiest airport and get them to their destinations in a seamless and comfortable fashion, something which we pride ourselves on.
“It’s an exciting development for EEC and we look forward to welcoming passengers and showing them the very best of what Edinburgh and Scotland has to offer.”
