Our website

This cookie policy relates to your use of our websites.

Throughout our websites, we may link to other websites owned and operated by certain trusted third parties to make additional products and services available to you, e.g. to book a taxi. These other third party websites may also use cookies or similar technologies in accordance with their own separate policies. For privacy information relating to these other third-party websites, please consult their policies as appropriate.


A cookie is a small text file which is placed onto your device (e.g., computer, smartphone or other electronic device) when you use our website. We use cookies on our websites. These help us to recognise your device and store some information about your preferences or past actions.

For example, we may record areas of Edinburgh Airport websites that have been visited by your device, for how long and what activity was undertaken on the website. We do this to understand which are the most popular parts of the websites, and also to improve your experience. For example, cookies that we use ensure that some promotional items, such as pop-ups and overlays, do not appear too many times on the same visit to the website. Some of this data will be aggregated or statistical, which means that we will not be able to identify you individually.
