Aberdeen Airport is the second busiest in Scotland, accommodating several airlines with regular destinations throughout Western Europe as well as charter flights. While it primarily provides services for business and commuter flights, many partner airlines offer service to popular tourism and vacation sites as well.
BMI Regional and Eastern Airways use Aberdeen Airport as a main hub. Both these airlines offer destinations throughout the United Kingdom, with regularly scheduled convenient flights to the greater region including Bristol, Esbjerg, Groningen, Manchester, Norwich, Cardiff, Durham Tees Valley, Leeds/Bradford, Newcastle upon Tyne, Nottingham/East Midlands, Southhampton, Stavanger, Stornoway, and Wick.
Although it is not a home airline at Aberdeen, British Airways provides nearly half of the flights departing from Aberdeen Airport. British Airways flies to London Heathrow and London City nearly hourly. EasyJet also provides service to London City as well as London Luton airport. Flybe connects to several airports in the United Kingdom, inlcuding Belfast City, Birmingham, Jersey, Manchester, Kirwall, and Sumburgh.
Outside the United Kingdom, Aberdeen’s airline partners provide service to much of Northwestern Europe with regularly scheduled flights as well as charter services. Aer Lingus Regional connects Aberdeen to Dublin through daily flights. Air France offers service to Paris several times a day. KLM flies to Amsterdam multiple times daily, also one of the busiest routes from Aberdeen Airport. Lufthansa provides service to Frankfurt through their regular and CityLine flight several times each day. Scandinavian Airlines connects with Copenhagen and Stavanger airports daily. Wideroe Airlines also flies to Stavanger and serves Bergen in addition.
Charter flights are offered to further places like Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Catania, Ibiza, Bourgas, and other popular vacation destinations.
All passenger flights arrive and depart from one main terminal, making the airport very easy to navigate. Smaller surrounding terminals are for cargo and helicopter operations only, so commuters and travelers alike only have one clearly denoted terminal to use.
