The short answer is no, and this answer provides good references with more details. In answer to the supplementary question that you raised in the comments section, airport security do not require any ID, so they will not be asking for a passport either. In the case of Gatwick, if your flight isn't leaving the UK, they will take your picture as you enter ...

For someone without too much stuff, who isn't in a huge hurry, and when the weather isn't too bad - yes! It'll add 10-15 minutes to your journey, however, and involves about 100m of walking with no footpath. From the airport, take the exit for the tram and buses, then keep walking past the trams towards the Hilton Airport hotel. Go past the hire car centre, ...

Domestic flights Some airlines accept photo driving licences and other forms of ID for domestic flights, but many don’t so check your airlines website when you book your flights. If you turn up with the wrong type of ID you will not be able to fly and you are unlikely to get your money back. Source: UK Civil Aviation Authority British Airways If ...

Everything you need to know is on the airport's Transport Links. The short answer is yes, easily. The fastest, but most expensive, way is just to take a taxi. Follow the signs to the taxi rank, should take around 20 to 30 mins to get into town and budget around 25 pounds one way. You can pick up any black cab on the way back. Trams are 8 pounds return, ...

There is virtually no difference where you fly, either Edinburgh or Glasgow are the same. There are bus links from Glasgow city centre to Edinburgh Airport. Also, Glasgow has a second Airport called Glasgow Prestwick, which is used mainly by low cost airlines and is about 30 miles South West from Glasgow. There is a train link from Glasgow city centre to ...

I second @Lucas with There is virtually no difference where you fly, either Edinburgh or Glasgow are the same. provided the Glasgow version is International (GLA, was Abbotsinch) which is about 10 miles from the city centre as opposed to 33 or so for Prestwick (PIK). EDI (was Turnhouse) is about 6 miles from the city centre. Fog has been slightly worse at ...

No, it's not possible to do it on a single ticket as each of the operators is a different entity. Alternatively you could take a Stagecoach bus 747 from Edinburgh Airport to Halbeath Park & Ride in Fife then change to a Stagecoach X24 bus to St Andrews bus station, which as Willeke suggested can be booked on a single ticket (a "Fife dayrider Plus"). ...

At Luton airport a few years ago a police officer stopped me and asked to see my passport. I said "I don't think I need it", he said "yes you do", but when I mentioned I was flying to Glasgow he let me pass. (Why exactly there were police stopping random people is something I don't know, nor what good it does if anyone can just say they are going to take a ...

As an EU citizen I once tried to travel intra-UK with only my UK driving license, which the check-in clerk did not want to accept at first (they told me that a driving license is only valid if I'm a UK citizen), and it took around 10-15 minutes of arguing, showing them their website on approved IDs, and them calling up their manager so they could finally ...

If this is a regular daily journey can be done with a single ticket for the train and buses, unfortunately it doesn't include the Edinburgh trams. It's a rail+bus OneTicket which is a zonal season ticket available in weekly, monthly or annual versions. It is also possible to buy a train ticket to "St Andrews Bus" which gives you a train journey to Leuchers ...

Get the bus. Edinburgh's trams are a local disaster story. Given contracting disputes, failed planning and key individuals resigning (see this BBC article for more info), Edinburgh council has spent 7 years and £1 billion building a single tram line that is both slower and more expensive than the existing airport bus service. If you get the express "...

The Edinburgh Airport website has a page on Transport Links with details of several options to get you to/from the airport. The public transport options include Taxis, Buses, Coaches and the Tram. Assuming cost is not an issue, here are indicative journey times into the city centre using the different means of transportation (the Apple store is next to ...

The problem with Edinburgh is despite having a taxi rank, it's not outside the terminal (that area is reserved for buses). Since you are presumably arriving from Sweden, it will be a longer walk than from the domestic terminal. It's not a ponderous distance, but something to consider if you are carrying lots of luggage because getting to the taxi rank is ...

I did this trip from the center of Edinburgh about a year ago. If someone with more local knowledge comes along with improvements, that would be appreciated. You'll need to get from the airport to the train station, either Edinburgh Waverly (the main train station) or Edinburgh Haymarket (slightly closer to the airport). You can do this with the Airlink ...

This kind of information changes very frequently, depending on how the owners of EDI price FastTRACK access and what airlines are willing to pay or pass through to passengers. Even at Heathrow, a vastly busier airport, access may change in a matter of months. FlyerTalk is generally reliable for such information, and according to various threads as of June ...

According to Delta's current timetable, Delta's early-evening flight from YYZ to JFK is currently operated by Endeavor Air, under the number 4126.1 It is scheduled to depart YYZ at 6:15 PM, and arrive at 8:11 PM. According to the FlightAware history for this flight, here are the arrival times that have been recorded for this flight over the past two ...

You are doing preclearance at YYZ and then connect at JFK to an international flight. This makes it a domestic-to-international connection. For that, the relevant Minimum Connection Time is DL-DL DI .45 CANADA - ALL in general DL-DL DI .50 TRM 2 - 4 So the computer will happily say, hey, 51 minutes, I can sell you this ticket and you can ...

I am not 100% sure, but I think you can pay with card if you buy your ticket in one of the Lothian Buses' Travelshops. There is at least a Travelshop at Waverley station if you plan to take the bus from there.

There aren't any direct buses or trains from Edinburgh Airport to Dundee. Any journeys will involve at least one change somewhere. For travelling by bus, the quickest and cheapest option would probably be via Halbeath park and ride, near Dunfermline. This is doable in about 1 hour 40 minutes, depending on what time of day. From Edinburgh Airport, take the ...

The Citylink M92 route has one at 4:15 (1615) from Edinburgh Bus Stn St Andrews Sq to Dundee Seagate Bus Station Arr and then next stop at Dundee Seagate Bus Station Dep that has very few stops in between. However this is not from the Airport bus stop itself and you will have to travel to the St Andrews Square bus station. You can take the 747 bus from the ...

An easy option is the tram and a train. The tram stops just in front of the airport, with departures every 10 minutes. Take the tram to Edinburgh Park station, where you can change onto the train. There are trains to Linlithgow about every 30 minutes. Both the trams and train should have plenty of space for luggage, though the train could get a bit crowded ...

For what it's worth (I know you're going the other way) but the Edinburgh Airport website says you can buy tickets from the information desk -- I've no idea if they take cards. As Tor-Einar Jarnbjo says, Travelshops are your best bet -- also note that the Waverly travelshop is closed until 'Spring 2014', they will accept cards but I don't know if they'll ...

Contra the other answers, the national rail ticket machines will sell a ticket from Leuchars to Edinburgh Airport that allows using the tram. When you are controlled, on the tram, you get a free transfer tram ticket. For the return trip, there's a train ticket machine near the M & S at EDI.

According to the website Traveline Scotland there are no direct buses between Edinbugh Airport - Dundee and vice-versa. Example: 16/5/2013 Depart Edinburgh Airport approximately 9.00 am gives you three options. if you choose the 9.30am this will be your route, arriving at Dundee Bus Station at 11.32 am If you then depart Dundee on 18/5/2013 at ...

Edinburgh airport is to the west of the city. Glasgow Airport is also to the west of the city. There are direct, regular, buses from Edinburgh airport to Glasgow Buchanan bus station; they take about 1 hour, depending on traffic. Buchanan is the main bus station in Glasgow; it has links to the rest of Scotland. There aren't direct buses from Glasgow airport ...
