Aberdeen Airport



Developed by UK2000

Aberdeen International Airport (Scottish GaelicPort-adhair Eadar-nàiseanta Obar Dheathain) (IATAABZICAOEGPD) is an international airport, located at Dyce, a suburb of AberdeenScotland, approximately 5 nautical miles (9.3 km; 5.8 mi) northwest of Aberdeen city centre.[1] A total of just under 3 million passengers used the airport in 2016, a fall of 15% compared with 2015.[2]

The airport is owned and operated by AGS Airports which also owns and operates Glasgow and Southampton Airports. It was previously owned and operated by Heathrow Airport Holdings(formerly known as BAA).[3]

Aberdeen Airport is a base for BMI RegionalEastern Airways and Flybe. The airport also serves as the main heliport for the Scottish offshore oil industry. With the utilisation of newer aircraft, helicopters can reach northern most platforms on both the East and west of Shetland areas. However, helicopters frequently use Wick, Kirkwall, Scatsta and Sumburgh for refuelling stops.

The airport has one main passenger terminal, serving scheduled and charter holiday flights. In addition, there are four terminals dedicated to North Sea helicopter operations, used by Bristow HelicoptersCHC-Scotia, NHV Helicopters and Bond Offshore Helicopters. There is also a small terminal adjacent to the main passenger terminal, Broomfield House, used primarily for oil company charter flights to Scatsta in Shetland, operated by Eastern Airways.
