Welcome to Brighton City Airport.

Brighton City Airport, the oldest in the UK, is the perfect gateway to the south coast of England. Situated mere moments from the vibrant, bohemian city of Brighton and Hove, and minutes from the A27, the airport offers you instant access to everything the South East has to offer. Add to this the nearby rail links, bus services, taxi firms and the option of pre-arranging chauffeur driven transport and you can be on the road within minutes of landing.

As you fly in to Brighton City Airport, avoiding the busy airspace of London, your breath will be taken away by fabulous views. Below you will witness gorgeous green countryside, quaint British towns and the dramatic south coast that stretches far off into the distance. It really is a sight to behold.

We Can Cater For You

The airport has grass and tarmac runways, allowing it to cater for all types of aircraft; both long and short term hangar rental is available; and it is accessible to flights from around Great Britain and Europe. In order to ensure it is safe at all times, Brighton City Airport has its own Air Traffic Control Team and fire crew on hand. The operations team at the airport is always available to offer safety and support for new and seasoned flyers.

Historically Significant

As well as being fully functional, Brighton City Airport is also a great day out thanks to its historically significant Grade II Listed hangar and art deco listed terminal building.
