By air

Aberdeen 's international airport is served by a number of major carriers providing an extensive network of routes throughout the UK, direct to Europe and worldwide through major hubs. British destinations include three of the four main London airports (Heathrow, Gatwick and Luton), Manchester, Newcastle, Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol and Norwich, as well as the Scottish Highlands and Islands. Major continental destinations include Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Stavanger.

By car

The main traffic routes into Aberdeen are the A90 from the South, Dundee, Edinburgh and Perth, and the A96 from Inverness and the North. The A90 is entirely dual carriageway south of Aberdeen; the A96 has stretches of dual carriageway. Like many major cities, Aberdeen is becoming congested with traffic and the rush hour is best avoided if possible.

There is an alternative and very scenic route from the south through Glenshee and Royal Deeside. Take the A93 north all the way from Perth. (linked to Glasgow from the M80/A9 and to Edinburgh by the M90)

First class roads south to Edinburgh and Glasgow and onward carry fast coach services linking Aberdeen with the UK's major cities.

A Student Travel Card (Cost £12 covering a 3 year period) is available from most coach stations.

Some coach services do not use the main coach station and pick up/drop off passengers at other sites near to the city centre.
