Enhanced wellbeing - fly with confidence

The continued safety and wellbeing of our passengers and crew is always our highest priority which is why we have implemented enhanced wellbeing measures which includes all customers aged 11 and above wearing face masks.

There is an exemption to the requirement for a face covering for customers with medical grounds, such as respiratory difficulties. If you meet the exemption requirements, you may be asked to present supporting government documentation

This is one element of a series of enhanced wellbeing measures we have implemented which include:

  • Microbe Shield surface protection in the cabin
  • Aircraft touch point sanitation procedures
  • Cabin air is continuously replenished with fresh air every 5 - 7 minutes, the cabin may be slightly cooler than normal, therefore you may wish to have a jumper to hand
  • Seat allocation to maximise the distance between passengers in the cabin where possible.
  • Reduced contact points, with the exception of safety cards, all seat-back literature has been removed and there is no inflight service

We look forward to welcoming you on board.

This exquisite capital is a must for foodies with some of the best restaurants and cocktail bars in Europe. Check out some of the best spots in the city to eat, drink, and play

 

The Royal Mile

The Royal Mile runs through the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, from the magnificent Castle to the splendid Palace of Holyroodhouse. Not only is the Royal Mile peppered with amazing attractions but is also lined with some of the best eating and drinking spots in the city.

Aizle

Located in Charlotte Square, Aizle offers a truly fancy night out. Their mantra is that the best meals are the ones you don’t have to choose! All the food and drink at Aizle is made in-house, from hand churned butter, to nutritious live fermented sourdough, to the aquavit and aged kombucha in the cocktails.

The Bon Vivant

Of course, a visit to Scotland wouldn’t be complete without trying haggis! If you’re a novice to the often contentious classic Scottish dish (chopped-up sheep organs and oats boiled in a sheep’s stomach), a great place to start is The Bon Vivant where you can order haggis bonbons - haggis breaded, deep-fried and served with bacon mayo.

Hoot the Redeemer

Hoot the Redeemer is a cocktail bar that's determined to help you have a great time. Dive into this wonderfully quirky cocktail bar with its unique retro 1950s New Orleans funfair-theme. The whole place is alive with an old-timey-carnival theme, including a claw machine you can pick cocktail ingredients with and a boozy ice cream dispenser!

The Lucky Liquor Co

Who said 13 was unlucky? The Lucky Licquor takes 13 bottles of spirits, uses them to make 13 cocktails and keeps them on the menu for 13 weeks. Featuring wide open spaces with bright white walls and light wood tables, the bar is a refreshing place to be in. With its cool Edinburgh vibe and friendly staff, it is well worth a visit.

Devil’s Advocate

Edinburgh offers an abundance of opportunities to taste the local whiskies. If you’re a connoisseur head to Devil’s Advocate for some of the best scotch selections in the city center with literally hundreds of whisky options, together with friendly staff who can help you concoct the perfect flight.

Glenkinchie Distillery

To see whisky-making up close and personal, venture to Glenkinchie Distillery, which is about half an hour from Edinburgh and runs shuttle buses from the city center twice a day. Once there, choose from a range of experiences, from a basic tour and single sample dram to a six-whisky personal tasting tour presented by the distillery manager.
