History
Aberdeen Airport opened in 1934 to link the northern islands of Scotland with London. The airfield became a Royal Air Force station - RAF Dyce, during World War II. Fighter aircraft were based here to provide protection from bombing raids from occupied Norway. Anti-shipping and convoy escort was also provided here by Coastal Command. In May 1943, a German Junkers Ju88 fitted with the latest radar technology landed here after the crew defected.

The airport was nationalized in 1947 and was transferred to the control of the British Airports Authority (BAA) in 1975.

North Sea oil helicopter operations began in 1967 and Aberdeen Airport became the world's largest commercial heliport. More than half of all aircraft movements are helicopters. In October 2014, Heathrow Airport Holdings reached an agreement to sell the airport, together with Southampton and Glasgow, to a consortium of Ferrovial and Macquarie Group for £1 billion.

Aberdeen Airport is looking to extend the runway for larger modern aircraft to fly to destinations across the Mediterranean, North Africa and North America.
