BRIGHTON CITY AIRPORT

The oldest licenced aerodrome in the UK

Brighton City Airport (formerly known as Shoreham Airport) is one of the world’s oldest commercial airports, with the first recorded flight taking place in 1910! Today, the airfield remains at the forefront of British aviation, as a major centre for pilot training, pleasure flights and private jet and helicopter charters. It is one of the busiest – and most interesting – general aviation airfields in the UK.

The airport boasts a historically-significant Main Terminal Building, which was opened in 1936. With its geometric exterior and original Art Deco features, the Main Terminal Building still stands proud and splendid.

Brighton City Airport offers convenient access to everything the South East has to offer. Minutes from the A27, the airport has excellent road access to the local area and great transport links to London, France and further into Continental Europe.

Open 7 days a week, a warm and professional welcome awaits.

WELCOME TO BRIGHTON CITY AIRPORT

Brighton City Airport (formerly known as Shoreham Airport), one of the world’s oldest commercial airports.  Our terminal building was built in 1936 and boasts a clean geometric exterior, a stylish modern interior including many original and restored Art Deco features, from the ceiling decorations down to the light switches. From the terminal, you can look out onto the busy airfield and beyond to the imposing Gothic chapel of Lancing College, nestled in rolling hills of the South Downs National Park.

We are open 7 days a week and offer convenient access to everything the South East has to offer. Minutes from the A27, the airport has excellent road access to the local area and great transport links to London, France and further into Continental Europe.

However you’re visiting us – in a business jet, having a flying lesson, a helicopter shuttle or a local leisure flight experience – a warm and professional welcome awaits.
