This page provides information about the flight times from Aberdeen Airport to Aberdeen (United Kingdom).
Aberdeen International Airport is located in a suburb of Aberdeen, 9 km from the center, which is located in Scotland. The owner is AGS Airports which also manages Southampton Airport and Glasgow Airport. It is the Loganair base that operates most of the Aberdeen departures. The first Aberdeen airport flight departures were already there in 1934. During the Second World War the airport was used for the Royal Air Force. After that there have been so many expansions and innovations that you can no longer see what it was like at that time. It has become one of the busiest airports with helicopter departures. With a new master plan, regular flights will also have to increase. There is still only 1 runway of 1,950 meters long for Aberdeen flight departures in addition to the 3 helipads.
