British Airways started flying to Ibiza from Edinburgh on May 23. The flight operates on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays and is set to run until mid August.

Scottish DJ Edith Bowman has been used to promote the route. Photographed at Edinburgh airport as the first aircraft was about to leave, Edith said: “This is great news for people trying to get out to the island this summer. Being able to fly direct gives Scottish holidaymakers maximum time on holiday.”
