Flying from Edinburgh

Edinburgh International Airport is the busiest airport in Scotland. Despite being a busy air transport hub, it still manages to retain a friendly, personal feel than many other large airports.

It’s easy to navigate your way around the complex, which makes checking-in and finding your flight departure point quick and easy.

The Edinburgh Tram system also connects the airport to the city centre. Taxis are available outside the main entrance. Parking is located right outside the terminal, so it’s only a short walk to check-in. There are two parking options: a covered multi-storey car park and a surface parking area. A pre-book service is available for parking, which can save up to 65 percent on the cost.

Arriving at Edinburgh International Airport

The departure check-in desks are located immediately in front of the main entrances.

Security is very tight at the airport, so ensure that all baggage is packed correctly and that you do not have any of the listed banned items in your bags. Check-in can be done online or at the airline check-in desks. If you are flying with Qatar Airways from Edinburgh you should check in at least three hours before your flight is due to leave.

Tourist attractions

The city of Kathmandu has a history spanning over 2,000 years, leading to an eclectic mix of ancient and modern attractions.

 

Because Kathmandu is a relatively compact city, it is easy to see much of it either on foot or by taking one of the many rickshaws that swarm the streets. This is also a good way to get a real feel for Kathmandu life.

To see a timeline history of the city, visit the Narayanhiti Palace Museum. Take a look up and you’ll see the resident giant fruit bats - a spectacular sight when they come in to roost at dusk.

The Garden of Dreams (Kaiser Mahal) is a serenely beautiful spot which captures the Nepalese love of nature and brings it to life in a stunning collection of rare flora.

Travel Considerations


Flights to Kathmandu with Qatar Airways land at Tribhuvan International Airport.
