Flying Messenger standard

Need flight updates on the move? Flying Messenger lets you check arriving flights at Aberdeen Airport by mobile phone text message (SMS).

How to use it

Text abz (for Aberdeen) plus your flight number to 82222.

So for example, if your flight number is BA1304, your text should read:

abz ba1304

You'll receive a reply giving the current status of your flight.

When to use it

This service is available up to 12 hours ahead of the flight’s scheduled time, and up to four hours afterwards. Requests must be sent on the scheduled date.

If you need to set up an alert in advance, please see Flying Messenger PLUS.

What it costs

Each Flying Messenger request costs 25p plus your network’s SMS message rate. If you’re using a pre-pay phone, you need to have enough credit to cover the cost of the service.

Further information

Flying Messenger is an automated service and only flight information requests will be recognised.

If you have further questions, please first check our Flying Messenger FAQs page and the Flying Messenger Terms and Conditions.
