Aberdeen International Airport opens new terminal extension

Scotland’s Aberdeen International Airport officially opened its terminal extension on October 4 with the help of HRH The Duchess of Cornwall, or The Duchess of Rothesay as she is known in Scotland.

The completion of the first phase of the airport’s transformation project has allowed for the second phase of construction to get underway, and this can now be seen within the terminal building. From summer 2018, this current construction site will house a larger and much improved central search security area and World Duty Free retail space. The third and final phase of the transformation project will bring a more spacious departure lounge, in addition to increased retail and catering offerings for passengers from 2019.

The Duchess of Cornwall was taken on a guided tour of the airport’s new extension by the site’s managing director Carol Benzie, including the new Northern Lights Executive Lounge, meeting shareholders, stakeholders, partners and associates.

Commenting on the grand opening, Benzie said, “We are delighted and honored to be able to welcome Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Rothesay, to officially open our new extension building. The completion of this extension marks the most significant milestone in our history since the current terminal building was opened back in 1976.

“This, the first phase of our transformative project, has so far been excellently received and we are confidently looking forward to the secondary and tertiary phases of our transformation. At completion, in 2019, the terminal transformation project will successfully deliver an international airport facility that all in the North East region and wider world can benefit from.”
