Aberdeen Dyce Airport

Aberdeen, GB


Getting around the airport


Aberdeen International Airport lies in the suburb of Dyce, around 10km north-west of the city centre. It's a small airport that needs updating, and it's not recommended to spend more time than you have to here.

There's one main passenger terminal, as well as three small terminals for North Sea oil operations (it's the main heliport for the Scottish offshore oil industry). The terminal has two floors: 

  • Ground floor: Most of the facilities are here. Check-in is on the left hand side of the concourse, Arrivals on the right hand side.
  • First floor: Departure lounges.

Shopping and eating facilities are limited. Landside, there are several coffee shops and a WHSmith shop. Airside, there's a small duty-free shop, WHSmith, Boots the chemist and electrical shop, Dixons. There are very limited facilities near Gates 6-10 so it's best to shop before you go to your gate.

Opening hours are 05:00-22:30.  

The airport is well served by hotels, with a Thistle Hotel, Premier Inn, Courtyard by Marriott and Speedbird Inn all on site. The Aberdeen International Business Park is nearby.

Getting into Aberdeen

Bus is the most affordable and convenient

Connections to the city aren't great, with no train station in the airport. The bus is cheap, direct and fairly regular.


You can take the 727 bus to the centre of Aberdeen in about 30 minutes. Buses leave as often as every 10 minutes, but you may have a longer wait at off-peak hours. Services run from 04:30 weekdays and 05:30 on weekends, until 23:30 Mon-Sat and 23:00 Sun.

Cost: GBP 2.90 one-way, GBP 3.50 return
The bus stop is just outside the terminal and well signposted


Taxis are available from Comcab, the airport taxi operator, and are all metered. In light traffic, travel time to the city centre is around 25 minutes, and to Dyce, the nearest rail station, 5-10 minutes. 

Cost: GBP 15 to the city centre, GBP 6-7 to Dyce rail station
Location: In front of the terminal. Turn left and walk toward the taxi rank, and a taxi marshaller will assist you.
