Aberdeen airport is busy and popular, largely because of the air traffic generated by the local North Sea oil industry, but also because it is a regional airport to Europe and the rest of the UK.

There are a large number of restaurants and bars, shopping retailers from which to purchase gifts and duty free items, plus facilities for currency exchange, parking and car hire. The airport regularly schedules flights to many European locations, to all the major UK airports (including Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, and London). Also specialist in flights to the Shetlands, Aberdeen Airport might be your starting point for a trip to the Scottish islands.
