I was out at the Ingliston Shopping Arcade recently, when I noticed that they also seem to have aeroplanes flying in and out.
I was suddenly struck by the thought: “Wouldn’t it be nice to have a separate airport dedicated to people who actually want to travel for business or leisure?”
This could have a security area near to the arrival and check-in areas, leading directly to the gates, without the need to walk three quarters of a mile past shops.
It would also cater for people who need to drop off or pick up those who aren’t travelling into the city, or who need assistance; such facilities would be free of charge.
The new airport could be called “Edinburgh Travel Airport”, or perhaps even Turnhouse, the old name for Edinburgh’s original airport.
What do you think?
