Edinburgh Airport Says Reinstates Picture of Nude Picasso

Aug. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Edinburgh Airport reinstated a print of Picasso’s “Nude Woman in a Red Armchair” in the international arrivals lounge after it was covered up following complaints by some passengers.

The airport covered the print, which promotes an exhibition of Picasso and Modern Art at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, with white vinyl yesterday.

“The initial decision was a reaction to passenger feedback, which we do always take seriously,” said a spokeswoman for Edinburgh Airport in an e-mailed statement. “However on reflection we are more than happy to display the image in the terminal and we apologise, particulary to the exhibition organisers, for the confusion.”

BAA Ltd. sold its Edinburgh terminal, Scotland’s busiest airport, to U.S. buyout firm Global Infrastructure Partners Ltd. for 807.2 million pounds ($1.3 billion) in April after antitrust operators ordered a breakup.
