As expansion fever grips Birmingham, Bristol, and London City Airports, Aberdeen unveils its latest development – a smart new parking deck.
Located close to the airport’s main terminal buildings, the £5m car park was completed in just 14 weeks, having been commissioned in late May 2009.
Kevin Brown, managing director at Aberdeen, was quick to point out that a wealth of time and energy had been earmarked for the planning process, helping contractors complete the build “in record time.”
Mr. Brown went on to boast about the affordability of the two-storey deck, claiming to provide the cheapest airport parking in Scotland. However, with a minimum stay of two days, the facility is unlikely to reduce quick ‘kiss and fly’ drop-offs.
In March a £7.2m refurbishment of the airport’s main runway began in earnest – a goliath task designed to extend the life of the asphalt by as much as 15 years. State-of-the-art lighting was also installed on the runway. Both projects are now nearing completion.
Airport staff have been equally enthusiastic about a new Eastern Airways service to the city of Bergen, Norway. The new route, which is expected to operate six days a week, enters the travel guides in October 2009.
Over the past year, BAA (the British Aviation Authority) has reasserted its commitment to Aberdeen Airport by investing more money in infrastructure improvements than ever before.
