Birmingham International Airport handles over 8 million passengers a year. This is one of the UK's largest airports. A £260 million development programme is in progress and there are more check-in desks, an additional multi-storey car park and work is currently taking place on building further access roads.
Birmingham International Airport has become the first Airport in the UK to have the wireless Internet facility. It is modern and efficient and ranks highly in the world airport ratings. The facilities are what you would expect from a modern airport and include the usual shops and restaurants and easy access to long and short term parking. The car park buses are particularly efficient and run every few minutes.
Check in and Check out facilities are a breeze and the airport is spacious and well presented to the visitor. The ease of transport links to the city of Birmingham and beyond, no shortage of taxis and buses is an added bonus. It's close proximity to the National Exhibition Centre makes this a popular destination for the business community as well as serving the needs of the tourists.
A recent addition to the airport is the new SkyRail facility which links the terminals with Birmingham International Station.
Birmingham Airport handled 8.27 million passengers by the end of March 2003 which is an incredible achievement given the problems recently with terrorism and the resulting decrease in air travel. Birmingham International serves all major European centres, the Middle East and North America. Low cost airlines are prospering and are regular users of Birmingham International.
