Edinburgh Airport installs soft-play area for younger passengers

By Tanya Filippelli

Edinburgh Airport has installed a soft-play area in its departure lounge to cater for young children travelling through the airport.

The new area, sponsored by Thomson, is located between Gates 10 and 11 and allows children to burn off some energy before boarding their flights. Fully equipped with slides, mini-climbing wall, tunnel and other fun obstacles, the zone was created in collaboration with SPI Global Play who also created the other two play areas at the airport.

“We want passengers of all ages to have the best time at Edinburgh Airport. Our free soft-play area allows children to run around and unwind in a safe environment before boarding their flight while their parents can relax and supervise," said John Watson, chief commercial officer at Edinburgh Airport.

“We’re delighted to be working in partnership with our colleagues at Thomson who are sponsoring the new soft-play zone and share our commitment to passenger experience. The investment in our play areas shows that we’re working hard to make sure our smallest passengers and their families have the best start to their trip.”

This is the third play area to be installed at the airport since January and is part of a wider project to help transform Edinburgh into Scotland’s most child-friendly airport.
