How to get to Birmingham Airport

A free Air-Rail Link monorail connects Birmingham Airport to Birmingham International Station, ideal if you're arriving in the city by train. If you're arriving by car, you'll find the airport just off junction 6 of the M42 (via the A45). Situated at the heart of Britain's motorway network, it's an easy one to reach.

Five buses serve the airport and its nearby train station. The X1 connects the airport to Birmingham city and Coventry, the 966 goes from Erdington and Solihull, while the 97 and 97A run direct from Birmingham city centre to the airport. Buses to Birmingham International Station are available from Sutton Coldfield (75/75A) and Chelmsley Wood (91).

Birmingham Airport facilities

It's best to arrive at the airport no later than 90 minutes before departure: if you're flying long-haul, try to arrive 3 hours before your flight. This will leave you with some time on your hands, but you'll find plenty at Birmingham Airport to keep yourself occupied.

There are three executive lounges to choose from, with paid entry, and two interactive Sky Zone play areas that kids can use for free. If you hate queuing you can book fast track security (and passport control when you get back). There's also a multi-faith prayer room, and a Changing Places bathroom with a hoist system and adjustable bench. Ask for the code from the OCS Special Assistance desk.
