Work begins on Aberdeen Airport

Work started today on the terminal forecourt at Aberdeen Airport, to improve access and security measures.

The £2 million investment programme will include a new dedicated access lane for taxis and service buses and a drop-off area for passengers. Temporary concrete blocks will be replaced with permanent bollards, following the attack on Glasgow airport last year.

A major investment by BAA Aberdeen is set to transform the terminal forecourt at Aberdeen Airport promising improved security measure and more convenient access for members of the public flying to and from the North East’s biggest transport gateway.

The project will also involve the replacement of existing lighting with low energy, high efficiency LED fittings. Work has already been completed to install solar panels on the terminal smoking shelters.

Aberdeen Airport’s customer services director Will Dougherty said: "I am confident that when this work is complete the forecourt will meet the needs of our passengers and represent a significant improvement on the existing arrangements, improving the end-to-end experience of key stakeholders and passengers alike."

Work will begin today and will run for around 18 weeks.
