Ac­cess to air­port from the north

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - AGENDA -

SIR, – Patsy Jar­dine’s “rant” (Let­ters, Jan­uary 8) about the lack of bus ser­vices to Aberdeen Air­port from the north high­lights a dilemma.

If you per­mit bus ser­vices be­tween the park and rides and the air­port, peo­ple will park there in pref­er­ence to the air­port’s over­priced park­ing. The 727 air­port ser­vice was orig­i­nally due to stop at the Craib­stone P&R (Evening Ex­press, June 13 2017) but now does not seem to. From Jan­uary 21 the new 747 and 757 ser­vices will con­nect Kingswells P&R to the air­port but it’s not clear how air trav­ellers will be dis­cour­aged, other than by the P&R’s 36-hour max­i­mum stay.

Stage­coach did route the No 10 In­ver­ness ser­vices via the air­port a few years ago but con­ges­tion made it im­pos­si­ble to keep to timeta­bles. With the im­proved road lay-out per­haps they should try again.
