Aberdeen Airport Taxis
Taxis at the airport are operated by ComCab. They are situated on the forecourt in front of the terminal building. Turn left for the taxi rank where a taxi marshaller will help you to get on your way as soon as possible.
Pre-booked Comcab taxis are arranged by the Comcab booking office which is on the right from the main entrance.
The taxis are metered but be sure to try and agree a price before starting your journey. Many vehicles are fitted with Chip & PIN payment terminals (transaction charge applies). In light traffic a journey to the city centre takes about 25 minutes and costs around £15, while a journey to Dyce which the nearest rail station, costs £6 – £7 and takes five to ten minutes. Fares and journey times will be greater when traffic is heavy

Taxis at Aberdeen Airport
Taxis are widely available from a number of ranks dotted around the Aberdeen City centre.
The main ranks are located on Back Wynd, Market Street and at the railway station, with more located further up Union Street.
Taxis can be difficult to come by at night due to a shortage of them (ranks are patrolled by marshals at night on special nights) and can actually be difficult to flag down on the street as many drivers do not give any indication if they are available for hire and will often not pick up groups of males.
