Aberdeen Airport has invested £1.3m in upgrading fleets of vehicles in preparation for the upcoming winter months.
The money has been spent on a variety of snow vehicles which will serve the entire airport campus, including a £700,000 state-of-the-art fire engine.
Bosses say they are now prepared for a harsh winter and “committed” to ensuring the airport stays open in adverse weather conditions.
Carol Benzie, operations director at Aberdeen Airport, said: “Our fleet really is the life-blood of the airport. Without investment like this our fire service couldn’t respond to incidents, our security and operational teams couldn’t carry out essential patrols and our snow-clearing teams couldn’t keep the airport operational in bad weather.
“This demonstrates how committed we are to keeping this airport properly equipped to deal with every eventuality.
“Winter can be notoriously hard on airports, but historically Aberdeen has fared well in the worst of conditions. By upgrading our snow fleet we can be sure that we will continue to perform at the highest standards, when the elements are against us.”
