We have a strong commitment to the communities around our airport and aim to address issues of prime local concern.
We aim to create opportunities for local residents to enjoy their local airport – even those who don't use it regularly. Aberdeen International Airport continues to build and strengthen its relationships with local communities.
We also have a community trust initiative to fund various local projects for community organisations and charitable groups. To find out more about the fund or to apply, have a look at our Community Trust page.
If you have any questions about our community projects, email Community@AIAirport.com
Official charity partner 2016
Every year Aberdeen International Airport commits its support to a chosen charity partner - for 2016 this partner is Friends of ANCHOR.
The Aberdeen and North Centre for Haematology, Oncology and Radiotherapy (ANCHOR) unit is an NHS department at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary which treats patients with all forms of cancer, leukaemia and benign blood disorders throughout the North-east of Scotland including Orkney and Shetland.
Friends of ANCHOR was set up to directly support the ANCHOR unit by committing long-term funding to medical equipment, patient wellbeing and local Research.
How to become our offical partner
As an offical charity partner, we vow to support fundraising efforts where we can. We will encourage our staff to partake in scheduled events, organise our own fundraisers and provide fundraising opportunities at Aberdeen International Airport when possible.
If you would like to become our official charity partner for 2017, then send a proposal to Community@AIAirport.com before the end of November 2016. Shortlisted charities will be put forward to our staff who will then vote for the exclusive 2017 partner.
