VSbulletin - Glasgow services moving to Edinburgh, Car Parking update
- 02 November 2021
- Virgin Atlantic
In August 2021, we had to change our flights to operate from Edinburgh Airport (EDI) instead of Glasgow Airport (GLA). Further to our previous VSbulletin, to limit the impact this has on your customers journey, Edinburgh Airport will be providing free car parking to customers travelling on Virgin Atlantic to Orlando who have been affected by this airport change. We can now share more information about how this will work in practice.
When they’re ready to go to the airport, they simply park their vehicle at Edinburgh Airport’s secure Long Stay car park, which is a 6-8 minute walk from the Terminal (please note, there is not a shuttle bus service).
There’s no need to pre book. Just turn up and take a ticket at the Long Stay entry barrier as normal. They can leave their car safely for up to three weeks while they go and enjoy their holiday.
Read more about the airport’s Long Stay parking here, although the tariffs won’t apply to them.
This free offer applies to the Long Stay car park only, so make sure they don’t park in a different car park or they will be eligible for parking fees.
When they go to the Virgin Atlantic Check In desk at Departures they can collect the free exit ticket, which will be waiting for them. They must remember to put it somewhere safe for use upon return.
We hope this goes some way to easing the start of your customer’s trip, so they can concentrate on planning the rest of their holiday.
