This airport is a gateway to and from the North Sea. Because the city is Europe's largest oil-related centre, the airport houses the world's largest commercial heliport and the majority of the flights through it are helicopter flights to and from the North Sea oil rigs.
It is 7 miles (11 kms) northwest of the centre of Aberdeen, off the A96 road heading towards Inverness. The airport has one terminal, with an arrivals and departures floor. It is wholly owned by BAA, the UK's largest airports operator and had over 3.48m passengers in 2013, a record year and up 3.8% on 2012.
There is ample parking at Aberdeen Airport, with short term and long term parking spaces, plus off parking, which is usually cheaper. There are four airport hotels - the Britannia, Marriott, Holiday Inn and Thistle - all offering an overnight stay plus free parking package.
Once inside the terminal, you will find the facilities you would expect at a small international hub. There is an airport lounge, currency exchange bureaus and a number of ATMs. There is a good range of eating options, excellent disabled facilities and there is duty free shopping.
For those meeting someone at Aberdeen airport it couldn't be simpler.
