It’s easy to fly to and from Edinburgh
If you don’t have much time and don’t want to spend hours on a train or stuck on a motorway, then the easiest option is to fly to and from Edinburgh. For example, if you have a busy work schedule but want to spend a long weekend in the city then it’s easy to choose flights from Edinburgh for a convenient solution.
You can have a wonderful mini-break and be back at your desk ready for the working week. For those who have more time you can use Edinburgh as your base and then fly on to Benbecula in the Outer Hebrides or any other destination.
Most flights from Edinburgh will connect you with the rest of Europe.
Global flights from an international city
The Edinburgh Festival is truly international and it’s very easy for you to include this occasion on your late summer timetable and then go on to another festival elsewhere. In fact sight seeing by festival is an exciting way to see the world. You could celebrate the end of winter with a visit to the Venice Carnival and then go on to the March Snowbombing Festival in Austria.
The Avignon Festival in July is one of France’s oldest arts festivals and this will put you in a perfect frame of mind to fly from Avignon, directly to Edinburgh for the August festivities.
Flying in for fun for the Edinburgh Festivals
In 2014, the renowned Edinburgh Fringe Festival starts on the 1st August and will continue until the 25th of the month. The Edinburgh International Festival runs from the 8th until the 31st of the month. Both festivals are exciting and offer the spectator a chance to spot the talent of the future and the opportunity to revel in new and wonderful performances.
If you’ve still got the energy, then why not fly from Edinburgh to Barcelona and take part in the September Merce Arts Festival?

With the growth of international air travel, festival hopping couldn’t be easier.
