LocationAberdeen Airport is the third largest international airport in Scotland. In terms of size in the whole of United Kingdom, Aberdeen Airport ranks number eighth. Aberdeen airport is situated in Dyce, which is approximately 7 miles north of Aberdeen city centre. From the city centre, one can reach the airport by simply tagging along A96 road towards Inverness.

Know your Airport - Aberdeen Airport was initially built in 1934 to connect Northern Islands of Scotland with London. It is now owned by BAA plc, the same organization which owns the biggest airports in United Kingdom namely Gatwick, London, and Heathrow etc. This emphasizes the importance of the airport in Scotland and its significance in Pan-British aviation. According to latest numbers, in 2004 the airport handled over 2.7 million passengers. Aberdeen Airport functions not only as the airport but also as the main heliport catering to the United Kingdom's burgeoning offshore oil industry.  

Airport Structure

  Terminals – The Aberdeen airport has a single passenger terminal. This terminal caters to the needs of both scheduled as well as chartered holiday flights. In addition to the airport terminal, there are 2 more terminals dedicated to North Sea helicopter operations. These heliport terminals are used by various helicopter service providers as we mentioned earlier. There is also a small terminal used primarily for oil company charter flights onto Aberdeen.

Transit systems

Please remember as in other international airports, Aberdeen asks its passengers on European flights, to arrive 2 hours before departure. For flights to UK and Ireland, you should be present within one hour prior to departure. For those going on vacation on charter flights, it will be of great help to the airport authority and customs if you were to arrive at least a couple of hours before stipulated departure.
