From Insider yesterday:

Edinburgh Airport has seen passenger numbers in November top one million for the first time. Stats released today show 1,045,708 passengers passed through its terminal last month. The figures are up 11.7% on the same month last year and makes November the strongest month in terms of year on year growth in 2018. International passengers and domestic passengers were both up 11.7%.’

This is, of course, one of many objective indicators of underlying strength in the Scottish economy, contrary to the useless propagandist GERS figures. For earlier reports see:
