Whatever the reason for your visit, you’ll find everything you need below to make the most of your business trip to Aberdeen, from transport advice to information on hiring rooms and conference facilities, however big or small.

Transport from Aberdeen Airport

The airport sits just 7 miles from the city centre, with a dedicated bus service running regularly. You’ll also be able to book a taxi from the airport, either to the city or to nearby Dyce rail station – a distance of 2 miles – and from there a direct train runs to the heart of the city.
