    Edinburgh Airport

    Loganair is moving flights to Glasgow because of rising landing costs at Edinburgh. Are they (Edinburgh Airport) getting too greedy? Their 1 drop-off charge particularly chokes me.

    To be honest I thought the 1 charge was a bit of a scam but I really works well with folk only too keen to move on meaning there's always spaces.

    Are Loganair saying what they're rising from to?
    Space to let

    Increasing congestion charges by 200.
    Also Edinburgh airport increasing charges 8% across the board next year, Glasgow increasing charges 1%.
    This info from EEN article on BBC news website.

    Pick up is but most folk including cabbies just use the drop off zone to pick up.

    Airport don't like it but not much they can do.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

    Nope, my Wife dropped my Daughter of yesterday & it was 1 👍

    Pick up is the same provided its done within 15 mins or it jumps up, Wife parks near airport and Daughter alerts her when she is in the terminal then she goes to pick up and pays 1

    The congestion is much worse at Heathrow where some passengers seem to need seeing off by 10 or 20 relatives.

    Prices are mad. Small part of my business is airport meet and greets. I'm collecting off Geneva flight tonight. If I'm waiting over 30 minutes it costs around 8 in parking by time they add a card charge. I've upped my charge to guests to cover but if parking charges keep going up it won't be worth my while

    What gets me is that they don't provide anywhere to stop outside the airport before going in. So someone could text to say come through now.

    Don't get me started on the greedy ******* airport

    Park in the tram, bus stop/park n ride free of charge. When whoever you are collecting arrives, they text you and you go to drop off zone to collect them 1.00 job done.

    I see Glasgow Airport are getting in on the pick-pocketing act now except they are mugging you for two quid for a drop-off.
