ABZ Aberdeen Airport Info & Guide
Where is Aberdeen Airport?
Nicknamed the Granite City, Aberdeen is characterized by grand, ornate architecture: its buildings are built from locally quarried granite which sparkles like silver. A cosmopolitan and prosperous city, Aberdeen is adorned with parks and floral gardens, and a long, sandy beach.
Historically, Aberdeen's prosperity came from the sea and its harbour. Today's prosperity comes mainly from oil, the helicopters so conspicuous in the city's skies a constant reminder of the offshore workers commuting to North Sea platforms.
