Fly from Philadelphia to Edinburgh, Scotland for its legendary Fringe Festival this August on American Airlines. Roundtrip flights for several dates in August and early September are pricing out at $502 on this new seasonal route from Philly.

Travel Availability

Travel on select days in August and September. Departures from Philadelphia are available Sunday through Tuesday with returns from Edinburgh available Tuesday through Fridays. Dates at this price in August are hit and miss so you'll have to be flexible with your travel dates to find something that works for you.  A 7-night minimum stay is required.

Searching, I found tickets at this price available departing PHL on Monday, August 12, returning from EDI on Thursday, August 22, 2019. The festival takes place from August 2 through August 26, so this fare is the sweet spot for taking in the entertainment in Edinburgh.


This Basic Economy fare includes a carry-on bag plus one personal item. A checked bag costs $60 each way.

Seat Assignments

Seats will be assigned at random upon check-in for this price. You may pay a fee to choose a specific seat.

Alternate Fares

Travel dates in October can be found for $464 roundtrip on select dates with the same restrictions.

Upgrading to American's Main Cabin Economy fare is $660 roundtrip, which includes one free checked bag, advanced seat assignments, and allows ticket changes/upgrades for a fee.
