An end to flights to France in the 1990s and the proximity of London Gatwick Airport seemed like the end for Plymouth City Airport, but it has rebounded in the new century to become busier than ever. It offers business and leisure travellers with a south western gateway to air routes all over the UK.
The terminal building is small but modern. Efficient check-in services are matched with a single stop place to have some refreshments while you wait for your flight. The airport's café-bar is always busy with commuters and holiday makers.
The adjacent car park offers good discounts for long-stay parking, and excellent value short-stay or day-stay rates, also. Though a brief walk is required to reach public bus services, taxi services operate right from the terminal door.
Nearly 20,000 flights a year shift over 100,000 passengers through Plymouth City Airport annually on Air Southwest, the budget regional airline that operates all flights at the airport.
A popular charter airport with three separate international agencies operating charter flight services, Plymouth City Airport also has a bustling learn-to-fly airstrip and a wide range of pilot courses are offered around the year.
