To ask the Scottish Government what plans it has to expand Aberdeen International Airport.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 23 August 2017

Any further expansion of Aberdeen Airport would be a commercial decision for the owners of the airport, AGS Airports Limited.

The First Minister visited Aberdeen International Airport in February 2016 to unveil details of a £20 million investment plan for the airport. I am aware that the airport are making progress with their terminal transformation with the recent opening of their new international arrivals facility in May this year, closely followed by their new domestic arrivals facility in July. We will continue to support Aberdeen Airport to secure new routes which improve connectivity for business or provide new opportunities for inbound tourism.
