Aberdeen International Airport in Scotland has completed the first phase of its three-year terminal transformation project after opening its new domestic arrivals facility. The operation of the baggage reclaim belt was the final element of the extension project and immediately replaces the temporary reclaim facilities.
Carol Benzie, managing director, Aberdeen International Airport, said, “The launch of our new domestic arrivals facility is a fantastic milestone for us and marks the completion of the first phase of our larger terminal transformation project.
“It is so exciting for us today to see the last three years of planning come into reality with this, the final element of our new extension building, open to passengers within the summer season. The opening of our domestic arrivals baggage reclaim has followed on from our new Northern Lights Executive Lounge, which opened earlier this month, and our International Arrivals Facilities that opened to passengers in May.
“These facilities demonstrate the high standard of our ongoing transformational works here Aberdeen airport, and we hope that all of our passengers enjoy the much improved experience that the facilities bring when traveling through the airport.”
The next phase of the airport’s terminal transformation project, which is already underway, will bring an enlarged and improved security area as well as a new World Duty Free retail space for 2018. The third and final phase of the transformation project will see the realigning of the airside-landside boundary, an improved departure lounge, and enhanced catering and retail facilities open to passengers for 2019.
