Aberdeen Airport has rebranded itself as Aberdeen International.
The move follows its parent company’s decision to drop the name BAA from its UK airports.
Now, following months of work behind the scenes, and the removal of the old name from some key locations around the airport, the Aberdeen has announced its new name.
The change sees the word ‘International’ officially adopted into the registered name of the company, and the introduction of a new colour scheme.
Derek Provan, the airport’s managing director, said: “This is an exciting time for the airport and for our customers.
“This launch, and the prominent place that this will take on the front of the building, sends a strong message to our passengers and the wider community of our intentions to continue to grow Aberdeen as an international airport.
“We have formally introduced the word ‘International’ into the registered name of the company, and will wear this with pride as a driver of our aspirations. We have been successful in recent years in introducing new international routes to Aberdeen, and will continue to strive to do so. This launch signals our intentions in a bold public manner.”
Jan Emery, the airport’s marketing manager added: “In Autumn 2012, the name BAA was formally dropped by our parent company, allowing each of the airports in the group to operate in a more stand-alone manner.
“The team here took that opportunity to adopt a new name-style which more closely reflects the intentions and on-going strategy of the business.”
