Aberdeen International Airport is one of the largest air harbors in Scotland. The airport is located less than 10 kilometers from the city of the same name, and due to the growing popularity among tourists, the air harbor annually serves about 3 million passengers.


History of Aberdeen Airport


The air harbor was built in 1934, and its main purpose was to ensure an efficient communication between London and the northern part of Scotland.

Initially, the airport served only a few thousand passengers a year, but later, the air harbor became effective not only in the transportation of people, but also made it possible to transport all kinds of cargo and mail as quickly as possible.

During the Second World War, Aberdeen Airport became the military base on which the Royal Air Force fighter and bombers were stationed, and although in this case the flight took more time to accomplish the objectives, the military aircraft were relatively safe. Nevertheless, over a period of several years, Aberdeen Airport was repeatedly subjected to massive bombing, resulting in its original form, the air harbor was not preserved.



At the end of the Second World War, Aberdeen Airport began its normal operations, servicing civil aircraft, and, in addition to London, flights to other cities of the United Kingdom began to be performed from here, and the route network of the airport expanded considerably.

At the end of the 60, due to the start of oil production in the North Sea, helicopter platforms appeared on the territory of Aberdeen Airport, and today this air harbor is the largest commercial heliport in the world, where an order of 37 thousand rotorcraft is serviced annually.

In 2000, Aberdeen Airport has undergone many improvements, and in 2013, this air harbor was given the status of an international airport, which led to a significant increase in the volume of passenger traffic.
