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.
