Advisory note – annual exercise

A live exercise will be taking place at Aberdeen International Airport on Wednesday 19th November 2014.

The exercise will be simulating the process that takes place after an aircraft accident. It is scheduled to start at 20:00 hours and will be concluded by 21:30.

Should you witness the event please note that this is an exercise only, designed to test the high safety standards and processes of the airport and its partners. All efforts have been taken to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum.
