Aberdeen International Airport served 3.76 million passengers in 2014 – the busiest year in the airport’s history and an 8% growth on 2013 levels. Deemed the ‘gateway to Europe’s energy capital’, it is the world’s busiest commercial heliport, transporting more than 500,000 passengers in support of the North Sea oil and gas industry. Serving more than 48 destinations directly, the airport is one of the best connected regional airports in the UK offering 25 hub departures each day.
A complex operation, the airport operates four runways – one main and three helicopter runways – and five terminals, three of which are specific to helicopter operations and another for processing fixed wing charter flights for oil operations in Shetland.
In 2013, the airport announced a multimillion pound re-development project which will be its biggest transformation in 35 years. The redevelopment will see the airport offer a brand new look and feel to the terminal environment, with enhanced features including changes to passenger lounge areas, retail opportunities, a refreshed arrivals product with new reclaim belts and a new security search area.
