 ABZ Aberdeen Airport Info & Guide


Aberdeen International Airport

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.


Aberdeen International Airport (IATA: ABZ, ICAO: EGPD), also known as Dyce Airport, or simply Aberdeen Airport, is located in the suburb of Dyce, 9.3 kilometres (5.8 miles) northwest of central Aberdeen, Scotland, in the United Kingdom. ABZ Airport also serves as the main heliport for Scotland's offshore oil industry, so is also referred to as Aberdeen Heliport.


In 2012, Aberdeen Airport served 3,330,126 passengers.


Aberdeen Airport is a base for BMI Regional and Eastern Airways. Other airlines that fly to ABZ include Aer Lingus, Air France, British Airways, EasyJet, Flybe, Freebird Airlines, KLM, Lufthansa, Scandinavian Airlines, Small Planet Airlines, Thomas Cook Airlines, Thomson Airways and Virgin Atlantic Little Red.
