Flights to Abu Dhabi from Edinburgh are often competively priced, and an indirect service is offered via Heathrow with British Airways once daily. However, beginning June 8th 2015, a daily direct flight to Abu Dhabi with Etihad will commence.
Getting to Abu Dhabi from Edinburgh takes just under ten hours on connecting flights, however with the forthcoming non-stop service, this will be reduced to less that eight hours. Flying from a regional airport usually also saves time getting through customs and check-in.
Transport links to Edinburgh Airport are regular and easy - with trains, buses, coaches and a tram running services to the airport, you’ll be able to find something that suits your needs. Similarly, the airport caters well for those arriving by car, and offers long-stay, short-stay and valet parking - this is often cheaper when booked online in advance.
