Birmingham International Airport

Birmingham International Airport (IATA: BHX) (ICAO: EGBB), is a major airport situated just outside the city, in Solihull, about 8 miles east of central Birmingham, serving the city and the rest of the West Midlands region with frequent domestic and international flights. There are several direct arrivals a day from all major UK and European destinations, and one or two from more far-flung places such as Delhi, Dubai (twice daily), Islamabad, Luxor, New York and Toronto. A free Air-Rail Link connects the airport Passenger Terminals with Birmingham International Rail Station between 05:15 and 02:00; it runs every two minutes and the journey time is less than two minutes. From the Birmingham International Rail Station trains run to New Street Station every 5-15 minutes from around 6:15 (Su 8:45) to 23:15. The journey takes 10-20 minutes depending on whether you get an express or local (stopping) service and costs £3 one way (local service) or £7 (express service).

Bus service 900 runs every 20-30 minutes between Birmingham and Coventry via the airport from around 6:10 (Sa 6:30, Su 7:00) to midnight, takes around 25 minutes and costs £1.70 one way.

A taxi from the airport to central Birmingham will take around 20-30 minutes and will cost around £22.00.

National Express coaches serve the airport every half hour during the early hours of the morning which is very handy for morning flights, as the trains don't usually start until later in the morning. The fare as of September 2009 is £3.60 each way.

The National Exhibition Centre is adjacent to the airport and can be accessed by the Air-Rail Link in Terminal 1 via Birmingham International Station.
