Rutherford Cross in partnership with Edinburgh Airport to recruit a Commercial Analyst for the Retail and Food & Beverage business

Edinburgh Airport is Scotland’s busiest and UK’s 6th busiest airport currently, supporting 33 airlines flying 202 routes to 130 destinations worldwide. The Airport is the UK’s fastest growing airport in terms of international passengers and has delivered 21% growth in these passenger numbers year on year. In 2017, Edinburgh Airport handled a record 13.4 million passengers and provided direct connections to more destinations than ever before – the second successive year where the airport added more than 1 million passengers.

The Airport is highly regarded as an entrepreneurial business that is committed to offering a market-leading proposition to airlines and passengers and is focused on a commercial strategy that incentives growth. To support future commercial growth Edinburgh Airport continues to invest in its asset base with major programmes underway to increase stand capacity, expand the terminal building and provide additional operational capacity in baggage, check-in, security and immigration.

From a broader perspective, studies show that the airport contributes almost £1 billion to the Scottish economy every year and supports more than 23,000 jobs across Scotland.

Edinburgh Airport’s principal shareholder is Global Infrastructure Partners (“GIP”) which is an independent private equity investor combining industry sector expertise with best practice industrial management. GIP acquired Edinburgh Airport in June 2012 after purchasing the airport from BAA for £807.2m.
