Aberdeen Airport served 3.5 million passengers in 2013 – the busiest year in the airports history.
Total passenger’s numbers have grown by 24% since 2011 and a number of new routes have been launched including Corfu and Riga. Helicopter passenger numbers continue to remain steady and the airport is a vital partner to the North Sea energy industry – topping the list of the world’s busiest commercial heliports.
The airport opened back in 1934 and since then has grown to an international gateway with four runways (one main runway and three helicopter runways), 5 terminals that support jobs for around 3,000 people.
A £15 million redevelopment was announced back in late 2013, which will see the entire customer experience transformed over a 3 year period. Improvements are being made to the baggage reclaim facilities, airside retail offering, executive lounges and the security search area. The redevelopment is in line projected passenger growth over the coming decade, ensuring that high standards of customer service can continue to be met.
