Business travellers from Exeter Airport now have even more choice with the start of twice-daily flights to Edinburgh.
The enhanced Loganair service operates up to twice-daily on weekdays and enables business day returns with a morning departure from Exeter at 8.20am, and the evening return flight departing Edinburgh at 6.00pm.
Edinburgh Airport is just eight miles from the city centre with excellent public transport links, including a tram service that runs every seven minutes.
Flights UK, Ireland and the USA
The additional flights complement a range of other year-round domestic routes from Exeter Airport. As well as Edinburgh there are regular scheduled flights to Glasgow, Newcastle, Jersey, Guernsey and Belfast.
And business passengers looking to go further afield can connect seamlessly from Exeter to New York, Boston, Chicago, Washington and Toronto via Dublin, avoiding the unnecessary travel to the busy London Hubs.
Dublin Airport is one of the few that offers pre-clearing of US immigration, which means passengers are treated as domestic arrivals without having to spend time queuing through immigration. And with through-ticketing and luggage transfers all included, passengers can enjoy a hassle-free trip.
25 destinations on offer
Stephen Wiltshire (pictured), Managing Director of Exeter Airport, said: “We’re delighted that Loganair is continuing to expand its operations from Exeter Airport with up to twice-daily flights to Edinburgh, complementing its year-round flights to Glasgow and Newcastle.
“The increased frequency gives business travellers even more flexibility, and it’s great for short breaks and for visiting friends and family too. Exeter Airport is serving 25 direct destinations across nine countries in 2023/24 and we remain committed to enhancing business and leisure travel opportunities for our customers.
“Our Dublin service with onward travel to North America and Canada is proving increasingly popular because of the time saved, and we are actively exploring how we can forge links with other hubs including Manchester, Paris and Amsterdam.”
Exeter Airport includes a comfortable executive lounge for passengers wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of the airport terminal before they fly, irrespective of airline or class of travel. Bookable via the airport’s website, it includes comfortable seating, free Wi-Fi, and drinks and snacks.
Exeter Airport also offers a wide variety of sunshine destinations in Cyprus, Greece, Spain and Turkey with operators TUI and Ryanair.

This summer Ryanair expanded its operation from Exeter with a new twice-weekly service to Faro on the Portuguese Algarve, in addition to the year-round flights it operates to Alicante and Malaga in Spain.
And next year TUI has already announced a significant expansion with 15,000 more seats available from Exeter compared to this year, with more flights to Crete and Rhodes in Greece, offering new 10 and 11-night breaks, and increased frequency to Dalaman in Turkey. The 11% increase in seat capacity follows an 8% increase this year.
