Charges apply to passengers being dropped off at the main forecourt, up to a 10-minute stay. Drivers wishing to stay longer than 10 minutes should use the Short Stay car park. Free drop-off is available from the Long Stay car park for a maximum 10-minute stay. Passengers can then use the free shuttle bus to access the terminal.

Regular buses run to the airport from Aberdeen city centre and other destinations throughout the city. A dedicated airport bus service runs 7 days a week from Aberdeen bus station to Aberdeen Airport terminal, with limited stops for a more direct service.

By train

If you're thinking of getting to Aberdeen Airport by train, the nearest stop is Dyce station, 2 miles from the airport. You can get from Dyce to the airport using the Jet Connect bus service on weekdays only, so at other times and at weekends, it’s wise to take a taxi from Dyce to the airport.
