Aberdeen Airport this weeK greeted UK Aviation Minister Baroness Liz Sugg, seen here touring the airport’s multi-million pound terminal transformation project with the airport’s Head of Security and Terminal Operations, George Cowie, and Head of Retail, Yvonne Birch. The Minister met airport employees and received a tour of the new security search areas, as well as updated retail, baggage reclaim and international and domestic arrivals. She was also updated on the progress of the final phase of the project, due for completion in Q3 2019. “Aberdeen airport plays an important role in opening up the Highlands for tourism, trade and leisure travel opportunities, as well as supporting thousands of jobs locally. The recent investment in the airport has significantly improved the passenger experience, which sits at the heart of the Government’s aviation strategy,” commented Sugg on her tour of the Scottish airport’s newest facilities.
