Aberdeen Airport Facilities
Many see airports as mundane and boring places where they have to wait before, or between flights. At Aberdeen Airport this myth should be dispelled, as modern airport has more than enough to keep you occupied during you time there. Located seven miles north-west of Aberdeen city centre, the airport is a pleasant place for travellers to wait for flights or relax between connections.
Travellers can reach the airport easily either by bus, train, or taxi. First Buses run a service between the city and the airport and the journey takes approximately 20 minutes, taking in all stops. Selecting a taxi as your preferred transport option knocks five minutes off the bus journey and costs approximately £16, depending on the taxi firm.
There are a number of Aberdeen Airport hotels where you can relax and unwind. The Speedbird Inn is a popular hotel that offers free parking and Wi-Fi to all its guests. This hotel is the only privately owned Aberdeen Airport hotel. The restaurant, the Captains Flying Club Bar, is contemporary, stylish and serves excellent food.
There are also several well-known retailers located within Aberdeen Airport, in sufficient quantity to ensure that all those waiting to board their flights are never bored. When running low on supplies, there is a W H Smith on hand for essentials such as water, crisps and chocolate as well as selling numerous magazines and newspapers. For duty free items, “worlddutyfree” is a popular choice and stocks a variety of sunglasses, fragrances, alcohol, and tobacco at greatly discounted prices. Some shoppers even visit the airport to enjoy the shopping experience available within.
