You need a valid passport to fly from Aberdeen to New York. Most British citizens can fly to New York visa free under the visa waiver program (VWP). You won't be eligible if you have a criminal record, if you're visiting to work, or if you don't have a passport with a chip. Some dual nationals and people who have visited certain Middle Eastern countries are exempt too. If in doubt speak to your nearest US consulate before travelling. As this is a long-haul flight we recommend arriving at the airport 2-3 hours before departure.
