A major £13 million redevelopment of the terminal building at Aberdeen airport terminal is planned.

A new security area with more lines, new baggage reclaim areas and more shops and restaurants are part of the three-year redevelopment project.

The overhaul is aimed at coping with increasing passenger numbers.

Airport managing director Carol Benzie said: “This terminal was opened in 1977 and what we are about to embark upon is the biggest change since that time.”

The work is due to be completed by 2017.
