ABZ was used by the RAF during WWII where it protected against the Germans during the time of Occupied Norway. A lot of photographic reconnaissance was done from this location. In 1943, a defecting German crew flew a Junkers Ju 88 to ABZ. That plane is in the RAF Museum in London. After the war, the airport was rebuilt with a new terminal and tower. The helicopter operations began in the 1960s when oil was discovered in the North Sea.

Frequently Asked Questions

Duty free shopping is when you can purchase goods that have had the duty/tax (usually taxes like import, VAT, and sales tax) waivered by the government, therefore reducing the prices that you would normally expect to pay in a standard shop or website. Duty free shops are usually found at airports or sea terminals, but you can also sometimes purchase duty free goods during international flights or on cruises.

Anyone travelling internationally (between two different countries) is eligible to purchase duty free items.

The term 'duty' refers to the tax that you pay if you bring a product from one country to another. i.e. if you bought some perfume in the United Kingdom, and then flew to Germany you might have to pay tax in both countries. Most governments do not charge the duty on products bought when you are leaving that country, which means that the customer doesn't have to pay the tax twice. This usually only applies when you are leaving the country, i.e. it is for export purposes only.

As the price for items bought in duty free shops often have the duty taken off the RRP, it can make them a lot cheaper than if you bought the goods in a normal shop. However, there are usually limits on how much you can buy on your trip, and these limits will vary from country to country, and also vary from item to item (i.e. there will be different limits on alcohol and cigarettes).

The most popular items in duty free shops are usually the products that are most heavily taxed, i.e. alcohol, perfumes, and tobacco. Duty free inventories will vary from country to country, and also from airport to airport. In larger airports, you may even find different prices in the numerous shops - remember it's always best to shop around! Make sure you check our database to see all the shops at each airport, and then you can invesigate the prices at each one.

Sadly, you can't just turn up at a duty free shop with several empty suitcases and fill them up with goodies! Restrictions will be in place, and these can vary from country to country. You will only be allowed to buy certain amounts of different types of products. Tobacco, alcohol, and perfumes are usually the products that are most likely to be subject to the stricter allowances. Make sure you check whilst purchasing, or else you run the risk of your items being confiscated upon arrival at your destination's customs.

No. Duty free is only available to travellers who are flying from one country to another country.

Yes. Many duty free shops will allow you to pre-order any purchases online before your journey. You will need your boarding pass and passport when you pick the items up from the airport shop.

Aberdeen Dyce Airport Reviews

★☆☆☆☆
If you are arriving in Aberdeen Airport on a domestic flight be prepared for a wait getting inside the terminal. There is a rotating door separating airside to landside which can only hold 3 persons at at time. Not good when 144 passengers arrive.
- Hynds

★★★☆☆
Not much to do once thru security. Nice peaceful costa coffee next to security tho.
- Fish Bone

★★★☆☆
Boring. Nothing to do.
- Fish Bone

★★☆☆☆
Flight diverted to EDI. On ground arrangements awaiting departure to LHR were amateurish, at best
- Richard Collard

★★★★☆
Decent, small airport, but little to keep you entertained during delays!
- CPerman17

★★★★☆
Had to wait a few hours to connect to flight to Sumburgh,nice airport,decent bar/cafe,staff were friendly and helpful,small duty free shop,not much choice.Waiting room for flight to Sumburgh resembled a bus stop shelter.Odd................................................
- davemcd

★☆☆☆☆
In need of rebuilding, the terminal feels cramped and check-in is dire, specifically for the BA flights, two on the desks and over 40 waiting to check in at 9AM. Despite all the demands for fees, I see little investment in the airports infrastructure.
- Adrian Gott

★★★★☆
This was strange - usually the disembarking process is terrible and the bags take forever to arrive. However, this time, off in five minutes and bags waiting. Incredible.... Still a rubbish airport though!
- Ashley Hart

★★★★★
A really good local airport, free terminal wide wifi and short security lines. Bring something to read/watch as there is little to do in the terminal in the event of a delay.
- Alexander Robb

★★★★★
Domestic arrivals was very slick, off plane and thru to the airport exit in less than 5 mins. Returning however was a different story. Queuing for security from the boarding card gates, 15 mins later I find only 3 lines and 1 working! Can imagine in busier times this would be quite a nightmare. The people working these were courteous however. Airside, plenty of eating areas and a decent duty free area. A lot of available seating but not of good quality. Everything else seemed fine
