A multi-million pound car rental centre officially opened in Edinburgh on Friday, offering a one stop shop for passengers at Scotland’s busiest airport.

Rally driver and TV presenter Penny Mallory opened the new centre which brings together all of the airport's car rental companies under one roof.

Built by Keir Group, the development is part of a planned £100 million investment by Edinburgh Airport over the next five years.

A covered walkway links the new centre, one of the largest of its kind in the UK, to Edinburgh’s main terminal.

The centre also includes a new car rental pick up and return area, conveniently located next to the Hilton Hotel.

Work is also progressing on a £41 million departure lounge extension at the airport, with the first phase set to open to passengers in November. The development will offer more space to relax, a wider choice of bars, shops and restaurants and a new purpose built security search area.

Almost 20 new services to Spain, Italy, Croatia, Malta, Denmark, France, Germany and Greece are set to take off from Edinburgh this year, boosting business and leisure opportunities. The new services include Bologna, Palma, Rome Ciampino, Copenhagen, Zadar (Croatia), Sardinia, Venice and Dusseldorf.

Airport Managing Director Gordon Dewar said, “These are exciting times for Scotland’s busiest airport. With almost 20 new routes already confirmed and more in the pipeline, Edinburgh Airport now serves more destinations than at any time in its history, connecting Scotland with Europe, North America and North Africa.

 Our substantial and ongoing investment in the airport will help position Edinburgh as a world class business and leisure destination, with an airport that rivals Europe’s best regional gateways.”
