Mermaid Makes Splash Landing At Edinburgh Airport

Mermaid Daniela Rodler Arrives at Edinburgh Airport en Route to Deep Sea World two

Edinburgh Airport welcomed a unique passenger yesterday (July 31st) – in the shape of a real live mermaid.

As Scotland’s busiest airport, Edinburgh plays host to nine million visitors every year but officials admit this was a definite first.  The mermaid in question arrived on a flight from Paris and, to prevent her feeling like a fish out of water, she was met by a team of aquarists from Deep Sea World, North Queensferry.

She was then transported back to the aquarium in readiness for a series of live underwater shows which will be taking place daily from 11am on Thursday, Friday and Saturday (August 1st – 3rd) .  The mermaid in question is Germany-based Dr Daniela Rodler who, when she is not mesmerising audiences with her underwater aquatics, is a qualified vet and university lecturer.

The former international swimmer and model is also a choir soprano singer and recently completed a fantasy film which is due to be released in Germany in September. “This is Daniela’s first official visit to the UK as a mermaid and we’re certain she’s going to make quite a splash wherever she goes,” said Deep Sea World’s Kimberley Hicks.

“You come across all kinds of interesting people and events at airports, but coming face to face with a life-size mermaid being carried in to a waiting aquarium van by a team of aquarists has surely got to be among the most bizarre!” she added.

As part of her visit to Scotland, and when she’s not underwater, Daniela is also attending a veterinary seminar in Edinburgh.
