Airport Junction near Edinburgh is a dumbbell junction on the A8 between Gogar Roundabout and Newbridge Roundabout. It serves Edinburgh Airport, Ingliston park and ride, and Ingliston Showground (used for the Royal Highland Show and other events). Because of the destinations it serves, it can be very busy, particularly when there is an event at Ingliston. Most recently, it has seen the opening of Ingliston tram stop nearby, serving the park and ride though less well located for the showground.

Currently everything is accessed from the northern side of the junction, but there are long-term plans to move Ingliston showground south of the A8 to allow it to expand and also allow more space for the airport. This would presumably give the southern roundabout more to do.
