The planned terminal expansion at Scotland’s Aberdeen International Airport has pushed ahead.

The project is part of the £13m terminal redevelopment plan, which was announced in December 2013.

The redevelopments have moved a step forward with the launch of new vestibule, which replaced the ageing revolving door at the front of the terminal.

"We have spent a lot of time finalising the detail of our plans with the architects."

Phase I of the main project includes the demolition of the old DHL building that will make space for the construction of the terminal extension.

The demolition is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2014.

As part of the project, the airport will see a relocated and expanded security search area, a larger departure lounge, new baggage belts and improved executive lounges over the next three years.

Aberdeen International Airport terminal redevelopment head John Deffenbaugh said: "We have spent a lot of time finalising the detail of our plans with the architects. This has been an extensive piece of work ranging from meaty discussions about load-bearing walls to a multitude of smaller conversations on subjects like where power sockets need to go."

"Everyone is looking forward to the official start of phase one when we can say that the redevelopment is well and truly underway."

Work on the project is expected to be completed by 2017.
