In 1984, Birmingham’s main terminal was opened but since then a second terminal was open to accommodate more passengers. However in February 2011, to improve passenger’s experience the airport was made in to one main terminal facility.
There are two main onsite car parks, which are located within a few minutes walk of the terminals. Onsite parking can be expensive, so it is advisable to book parking in advance. There are also long stay offsite car parks, within a few miles of the airport terminals, where a transfer bus will take you to the terminal.
There are train links into Birmingham International rail station at the airport. The rail station is connected to the main Airport terminals by ‘The SkyRail’, a short 2 minute walk away.
