Formatting an 01224 number

Local telephone numbers in the Aberdeen area are six digits long. An 01224 number should be displayed in the format: 01224 xxxxxx

For international callers, use: +44 1224 xxxxxx

As local calls in the area must always be dialled using the full number including area code, it is best not to display the code in brackets.

Local calls require full number

Since 1 October 2014 all calls within the 01224 area have had to be made by dialling the full 11-digit number including area code. Calling locally using just the six-digit local number is no longer possible.

See: Areas codes without local dialling.
