New-look Aberdeen on way

The first phase of Aberdeen International Airport’s £20m terminal redevelopment is under way. 

The three-year project will see a 50% extension of the existing building, the biggest upgrade since it first opened in 1977, along with new equipment and facilities including domestic and international baggage reclaim areas.

The two-storey extension will be south of the existing terminal building and at ground level will accommodate all facilities for international arriving passengers as well as domestic baggage reclaim. 

Two business lounges will be located on the upper level and a new security search area, new immigration, retail and catering facilities within the main departures lounge.

Temporary baggage reclaim areas are being erected in the interim to allow construction of the new extension.

The domestic baggage reclaim belt will be relocated to a temporary facility outside the main terminal building in the lower forecourt. 

The international baggage reclaim belt will be moved along with the Immigration desks to a new temporary facility along the international walkway.

The airport says it hopes to have the work completed and the new reclaim areas ready for passengers to use before the end of May next year.
