BAA has big plans for Aberdeen airport

Last week BAA Scotland unveiled a two year plan to transform Aberdeen airport into a "truly international gateway for north east Scotland". City councillors have also recently given the go-ahead for a major runway extension.

The ambitious blueprint outlines BAA's vision for the future of the north-east terminal between now and 2030. The first stage sets out a two year, £10 million plan to boost Aberdeen's status as an international gateway with two major developments.

The international arrivals hall will be extended and refurbished, providing additional terminal capacity, a larger Customs and Immigration hall, and improved baggage reclaim facilities.

The other part of the development will involve the construction of the first phase of a 300 metre runway extension designed to increase the range of international destinations within direct range of Aberdeen. The runway extension was approved at an Aberdeen City Council meeting in December. Aberdeen airport managing director Andy Flower said:

"We welcome this vote of confidence from our local councillors. It sends a clear signal that Aberdeen Airport is ready to become a major player in what is an increasingly competitive industry."

The plan predicts that by 2015 the terminal could be handling 4 million passengers with as many as 5.9 million by 2030.
