Welcome to the second flight to Scotland from Paris. We booked it very very late, but finally we had good prices (150£ A/R each from CDG to EDI via MAN with Flybe, and a 23kgs lugage!!). That's my first time in Scotland, in EDI and MAN airport and with flyBe!
We landed one hour late with our flight from CDG, so we run through the airport. Our flight BE293 is now "GO TO GATE" in the FIDS.
Our plane is 'Spirit of Exeter'
The window is very dirty (like stain of fat). I didn't manage to clean it.
It's noon, and we didn't push-back. But a few minutes then, our engines started to run. 321 BA
12:20am take of.
Right tur, gear retracted.
But quicly, we approach a dense cloud:
Inside of it
It moves a lot during 10minutes. The BoB didn't have a lot of success. Then, we start our descent
We cross the clouds.
And we fly over the sea after à left turn. It's an east approach.
Landing gears released.
We fell that the plane is flummoxed. There is a lot of wind outside, and with a little plane you know…
The land appears, we're not very high.
Fields and sheep
And the runway
Touchdown at 12:45pm.
Only 25minutes of flight!!
Then we go fastly to the parking.
Transavia from Orly, Easyjet from Luton and Lufthansa from Frankfurt.
Germanwings from Düsseldorf
Luggage compartment are tiny.
Descent of the plane on foot and we reach the terminal. A lot of wind, it's very cold (from 30° at Paris we are now at 9° !!).
Let's go to the baggage claim.
Buuut, obviuosly, our luggages remained at Manchester. We go to SwissPort counter, we fill a form. Finally, our luggage will be delivered tomorrow morning at our home (we did a house exchange between Scotland and Guadeloupe, so we stay at a beautiful appartement in the hyper-center of Edinburgh!!).
Control tower again from outside.
Then we go to the tram.
Nothing to say about the tramway. Clean, quick.. But, little trick. If you take the tram at the airport station "Airport", you'll pay 6£/person simple traject, very expansive. If you walk straight ahead when you get out the airport, then you walk along the road (about 1miles, 5-10minutes) and go to tram station before "Ingliston Park&Ride" then you'll pay only 1.60£ simple traject. An oconomy of 2.40£, for only a little walk along the road (there is a footpath). And in 20minutes, you're at Princess Street for only 1.60£ ! Amazing!
This is the end of the report, thank you for reading despite of my bad english level.
Manchester - MAN
Edinburgh - EDI
BE: Nothing to say, very short flight.
MAN: Not fluid, some agents are friendly, some not.
EDI: Beautiful airport, well served by the tramway, bus, taxis, car rentals. Control Tower is especially nice.
