Air Ecosse was a Scottish commuter airline based in Aberdeen operating in the late 1970s to mid-1980s. They flew between Aberdeen and cities in northern England, such as Liverpool and Carlisle as well as to Edinburgh and Glasgow. They also carried out mail flights for the Royal Mail. Air Ecosse was a subsidiary of Fairflight Charters based at Biggin Hill. The company was bought out of administration by Peregrine Airways of Aberdeen and the new company became Aberdeen Airways (Callsign: Granite). Aberdeen Airways subsequently also filed for bankruptcy protection, moved to East Midlands (EMA) and finally died.
