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 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.
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. The Main Terminal building was opened on 13th June 1936 under the name ‘Brighton Hove and Worthing Joint Municipal Airport’ and still stands proud, today. Aviation enthusiasts can enjoy a guided tour of these wonderful historic buildings and learn about how the airport was utilised in the Second World War before visiting the airport museum situated on site.
Passengers, visitors and locals alike can all dine in the fabulous and popular Hummingbird Cafe, which is located in the main terminal building and has stunning views out onto the airfield. Eat delicious home cooked food in a beautiful setting as the planes come and go, before jetting off to your next destination. Whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner, or even just a quick snack, the Hummingbird Cafe will not disappoint.
