Getting there

How do I get to Aberdeen Airport?
Aberdeen Airport is just under seven miles away from the city centre so is easy to get to by car or public transport. There are lots of ways to make getting around Aberdeen easy.

By car
Situated seven miles north-west of the city centre, the airport is easily reached from the A96 Aberdeen-Inverness road. Use the postcode AB21 7DU in your sat nav or mapping app to get the best route from wherever you’re travelling from. Once there, you’ll find ample parking in either short stay, long stay or priority parking. You can pre-book a parking space to make things easier and receive a reduced rate.  If you don’t want to take your own car, you can get a taxi from the city centre which will cost you between £15-20.

By train
There is no train station at the airport itself, so the nearest station to the airport is Dyce, about two miles from the terminal and easily reached by taxi or by bus. If you know exactly when you’re going to arrive you can pre-book a taxi with Aberdeen Airports Official Taxis. You could also wait for the bus although these only operate hourly and take 17 minutes from the station to the airport. The main train station in Aberdeen is seven miles away in the city centre. There’s a direct bus from Union Square Bus Station that takes you direct to the airport. It takes roughly 30 minutes and services depart every 20 minutes.

By bus
Buses to and from the airport into the city centre and beyond are plentiful. There is a bus stop right outside the terminal which is clearly signposted. Look out for the Jet Service 727 which runs from the airport to Aberdeen city centre and the 747 which runs between Montrose and Peterhead, stopping at the airport on route.
