The 57-metre high air traffic control tower at Edinburgh Airport will be lit up from dusk till dawn until Monday November 11 in support of the 2013 Scottish Poppy Appeal, organised by veterans charity Poppyscotland.
As part of this year's appeal, the airport will also host the charity's photographic exhibition, Unforgettable Stories, in the departure lounge.
The display features black and white images of people from across Scotland, including serving soldiers, veterans and supporters of the charity, whose handwritten messages give insights into what the poppy means to them.
David Wilson, Edinburgh Airport's chief operating officer and former member of the Parachute Regiment, said: "As an ex-serviceman the Poppyscotland appeal is a cause very close to my heart.
"Edinburgh Airport has had a great relationship with the charity for a long time and I'm delighted we can work together again to raise awareness and highlight the wonderful work Poppyscotland does."
Poppies are available for passengers and staff at the airport, poppy collectors will be in the terminal on selected days, Poppyscotland merchandise will be on sale and there will be messages of support for the appeal on check-in screens.
The airport's operations team will also help organise the annual Remembrance Sunday event held at the airport's model spitfire monument.
Poppyscotland's head of fundraising Colin Flinn said: "We are very grateful to Edinburgh Airport for the huge range of support they are giving to the 2013 Scottish Poppy Appeal.
"We need to raise more money every year through the appeal and these exciting initiatives will certainly raise a great deal of awareness and give the campaign a welcome boost."
The Scottish Poppy Appeal is Poppyscotland's largest fundraising event and money raised is used by the charity to provide direct financial assistance to veterans and their families and by funding specialist services in areas such as advice, employment, housing and health.
Edinburgh Airport, officially Scotland's busiest, had more than a million passengers in August, the second month in a row in which the milestone was reached.
