There is one Aberdeen airport parking lot, so during busy travel times it is really important to book in advance. “Aberdeen Flightpath ACP” is the name of the lot, it is on-airport parking and offers a transfer shuttle for the short ride from the parking lot to the terminal.
Some information about Aberdeen Airport:
- Aberdeen’s airport is actually in Dyce, which is roughly 12 km from Aberdeen’s downtown area.
- While the list of airlines serving Aberdeen is not long, it is a hub of bmi regional (a subsidiary of bmi), City Star Airlines and Eastern Airways.
- The Aberdeen Airport used to be under a curfew where planes could not land or take off between 22:30 and 06:00, but it now operates 24 hours a day.
- This airport has the world’s largest commercial heliport, and serves as the main heliport for the UK’s offshore oil industry.
- WiFi is offered for a fee throughout the airport, and there are internet access points around as well for those traveling without a laptop.

Alternative ways to get to Aberdeen Airport:
- Taxi: Rainbow City taxis is the most popular taxi service between the airport and the city, and one-way fares cost roughly £15.
- Rail: There are trains that stop in Dyce, but not directly at the airport, so from the train station you would need to take a taxi to the terminal.
- Bus/Shuttle: Buses run between downtown Aberdeen and the airport, operated by both First Aberdeen and Stagecoach Bluebird. The schedule runs buses more frequently on weekdays, and the service costs about £1.50.
