ABERDEEN International Airport has been shortlisted for ‘Airport of the Year’ at the Scottish Transport Awards.
It follows the completion of the £20 million terminal transformation project which was the largest development in the airport’s history.
The Digital Twin project, an online platform which creates a model of the baggage screening system and can be interacted with through virtual reality is also up for the Excellence in Technology and Innovation category.
The partnership between Aberdeen International Airport and the Canine Concern Scotland Trust for the popular Canine Crew has also been shortlisted in the Transport Team/ Partnership of the Year.
There’s also a nomination for the Excellence in Transport Accessibility for its special assistance services offered and engagement programme AccessABZ.
Roger Hunt, Aberdeen International Airport interim managing director, said: “To be nominated across a broad spectrum of categories highlights the significant efforts that have been placed across our really diverse business, in ensuring that we constantly focus on enhancing the customer experience.
“We are delighted that the hard work of the AIA team, along with that of our partners has been recognised by the Scottish Transport Awards in no fewer than 4 categories.
“It is particularly pleasing to have been shortlisted during what continues to be a really challenging period for our airport as we respond to the impact of the pandemic.”
Supported by the Scottish Government, the annual Scottish Transport Awards is now in its 18th year.
Winners of the awards are scheduled to be announced in September.
