Edinburgh airport is considering charging passengers to jump passport queues.
The new fast track fee is understood to be £5 per person and will be the first of its kind in Scotland.
A spokesman for Edinburgh airport told The BBC it was likely to be trialled in the "near future".
"This new service will offer choice to people flying into Edinburgh Airport," he said.
"We look forward to being able to offer our overseas passengers and returning UK-based passengers an even smoother arrival into Scotland."
In July the airport’s CEO Gordon Dewar said it was preparing for its “busiest summer ever” and warned that queues at passport control could hit high levels following “very serious” staffing cuts.
July was also Edinburgh’s busiest ever month as it handled 1.3 million passengers – a 9.6 per cent year-on-year rise.
Dewar said: “European airports’ growth for the first half of the year is at 4.9%; our growth over same six month period compared to the last year is more than double that.”
