Community matters

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.

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 before the end of November 2016.  Shortlisted charities will be put forward to our staff who will then vote for the exclusive 2017 partner.

Near-miss safety fundraising

Friends Of Anchor Aberdeen Airport 

We were delighted to welcome Carly from Friends of Anchor to Aberdeen International Airport to collect a cheque for £360 for the ‘Near Miss’ initiative.

A Near Miss is an unplanned event which does not cause injury but which has the potential to do so under slightly different circumstances. Near Miss reports help identify and prevent potential problems in the future. For every incident logged, Aberdeen International Airport donated £1.
Make sure to check out the Friends of Anchor Facebook page for all the updates and events.
