Lothian has revealed a new cross city service for Edinburgh Airport customers, adding to its existing range of airport services and creating new links for residents and visitors to the city.

The Skylink 400 service will connect Edinburgh Airport with Fort Kinnaird via Gracemount, Oxgangs and Colinton, introducing links for customers from the south east and south west of the city directly to the airport.

Nigel Serafini, Commercial Director at Lothian, said: “As Edinburgh Airport continues to expand and customer demand on our airport services continues to grow, it is important that Lothian recognise this and support the increased demand for direct, reliable, value for money services to various key locations in Edinburgh.

“The introduction of our new Skylink 400 service will boost our existing airport offering and better connect residents and visitors with our city.”

Lothian’s Skylink 300 has also been re-routed to now serve Cameron Toll, linking air travellers with hotels and guest houses in the Southside of the city.
