Aberdeen, United Kingdom
Air Transport Movements
In 2014, in consortium with Macquarie European Infrastructure Fund 4 (MEIF4), we acquired a 50% stake in AGS, the company that owns the Aberdeen, Glasgow and Southampton airports.
Aberdeen Airport is one of the seven British airports that belonged to the BAA (British Airport Authority) portfolio, which we acquired in June 2006.
During this time, we have carried out several projects that have contributed to the transformation of the airport’s infrastructure, including the extension of its main runway and the renovation and expansion that was completed in 2019.
The airport has one terminal for commercial flights and a second, fixed-wing terminal. Aberdeen has one of the world’s busiest heliports, with three helicopter terminals and more than 35,000 movements every year.
Aberdeen is the third largest city in Scotland. The airport is a strategic transport hub in the northeast and is the main driver of economic development in the region, with a contribution of more than 110 million pounds. We employ 247 people and generate more than 3,500 jobs in the area.
