The airport occupies a former WWI military airfield and its continued use for military purposes right through to the 1990s means that its runway is longer and wider than most others in the country. It opened under its current name in 2005 and has boomed with the popularity of budget air travel to Europe.
The gleaming modern terminal has wireless internet access for passenger travelling with enabled laptops and this service is offered by The Cloud. Retail outlets include vendors like WH Smiths and the terminal even has a tanning salon, as well as a great range of eating and drinking options.
Car parking is readily available at the terminal - indeed the airport management offers a 'guaranteed car parking' space for all passengers. Alternatively, the airport is well served by public buses and taxi companies, and the train station is a couple of kilometres away.
The airport is committed to becoming a greener aviation hub with new environmental operation plans in place for the last few years addressing noise, waste management and carbon reduction. Additionally, security is state-of-the-art here, and all special assistance passengers are amply catered for.
Passengers can fly from the airport to many popular holiday destinations throughout the Mediterranean and the Middle East, as well as to continental Europe and several destinations across the UK.
