Inside Edinburgh Airport Episode 1 of 2

Recently taken over by a new management team, Edinburgh Airport is undergoing major changes. Originally built to carry one million passengers annually, the airport now faces ten times as many during the busiest year in its history.

This two-part documentary follows those on the front line up to the Chief Executive as the airport adapts to a change in ownership and a major increase in passengers.

New boarding pass security scanners cause confusion when passengers believe face down means holding their face against the scanner, rather than their boarding pass. Management descend on the shop floor to help on the busiest day of the year as 40,000 passengers pass through the airport but things start to go wrong when the main baggage belt fails. This week's episode also sees Richard Branson launch Little Red as well as the arrival of BA's Dreamliner aircraft.
