Edinburgh Airport is located some 12 kilometers (8 miles) outside the city. Currently, the easiest and cheapest way into town is with the Airlink Bus (No 100; http://www.flybybus.com/). Buses leave every 10 minutes from the airport to Waverley station and take about 30 minutes. From June this service is replaced or complemented by a tram service running approximately the same route.
