The History of Aberdeen Airport
When Aberdeen Airport opened in 1934, it was intended to link the northern islands of Scotland with London. During the Second World War the airfield became an RAF base and was mainly used as a photographic reconnaissance base. The airport was nationalised in 1947 and was later transferred to BAA in 1975.
Helicopter operations began in 1967, linking the growing number of North Sea oil rigs to the mainland. With the North Sea oil boom in full swing, Aberdeen Airport became the world’s largest heliport. Currently the airport handles more than 37,000 rotary wing movements accounting for half of the aircraft movements there.
In 1977, a new terminal was opened after a £10 million investment at the airport and a major departure lounge development was completed in 1992. Noise constraints had prevented the airport from accepting or dispatching aircraft between 22:30 and 06:00, however the city council overturned this ban in March 2005 allowing the airport to operate 24 hours a day.
In December 2006, investment plans for the airport’s future were unveiled which included a runway extension. The terminal’s Departure Lounge underwent a £10 million refurbishment which was completed and opened in June 2007. A year later, work began on a £2 million forecourt project to improve passenger access, with a new dedicated access lane for taxis and a drop off area for passengers.
Aberdeen Airport celebrated its 75th birthday in July 2009. With its helicopter industry and a growing demand for fixed-wing services, Aberdeen has the busiest runway/airspace in Scotland and the fifth-busiest runway in the United Kingdom. Work is due to commence on a 124 metre runway extension in 2011.
