Airport managing director Derek Provan said rebranding "sends a strong message" of the airport's intentions for the future
Aberdeen Airport has officially relaunched today as Aberdeen International Airport.
The move comes after the airport's operator, BAA, adopted changes to allow individual airports to operate independently.
In the autumn of last year the name BAA was formally dropped by the Spanish parent company Ferrovial.
Derek Provan, managing director of Aberdeen International Airport, said the rebranding "sends a strong message" to passengers and the wider community of the airport's intentions for the future.
He said: "This is an exciting time for the airport and for our customers.
"This launch, and the prominent place that this will take on the front of the building, sends a strong message to our passengers and the wider community of our intentions to continue to grow Aberdeen as an international airport.
"We have formally introduced the word 'International' into the registered name of the company, and will wear this with pride as a driver of our aspirations.
"We have been successful in recent years in introducing new international routes to Aberdeen, and will continue to strive to do so.
"This launch signals our intentions in a bold public manner."
Last April Aberdeen Airport unveiled a new 30-year, £100 million redevelopment programme.
The plans include the expansion of the airport's runway and a refurbishment of the terminal building, with the aim of increasing passenger numbers by 40 per cent by 2040.
