The consultation on the future development of Aberdeen Airport has begun.

A series of drop-in sessions are to be held so that the plans can be discussed with local residents and members of the business community, as well as giving people the chance to raise their concerns over any environmental issues with representatives of the BAA Aberdeen team.

The consultation sessions are to be held in a number of local areas over the next two months, with the first meeting scheduled for the evening of Wednesday 25th January at the Aberdeen Marriott Hotel in the Dyce-Pitmedden Suite.

It is hoped that the expansion of Aberdeen airport will eventually create an extra 4,000 jobs in the area as well as boosting local tourism.

"This is an exciting time for Aberdeen Airport, but we also appreciate that it will be challenging," said Andy Flower, managing director of Aberdeen Airport.

"We are committed to working with those communities to address these challenges. We want to hear as many views as possible, from as wide a range of the community as possible, before any final decisions are made on the future development of the airport."

It is estimated that around 5.3 million passengers will use the airport each year by 2030 - meaning that nearby airport hotels will need to be booked well in advance to ensure availability. Aberdeen Airport hotel bookings can be made online.
