Birmingham Airport guide

Birmingham Airport (BHX) serves as the base for both domestic flights and routes across Europe, North America, the Caribbean, India and the Middle East. BHX is a centre for flight training, so it is an important airport for all types of fliers.

Location of Birmingham Airport

The airport is located just outside the city of Birmingham in Bickenhill, Solihul. It is 6.3 miles (10.2 kilometres) southeast of Birmingham city centre. As Birmingham has plenty of transport links, it is easy to get to the airport from anywhere in the country.

Five bus services currently offer transport to BHX via the city centre and surrounding areas, such as Coventry and Sutton Coldfield. Two separate coach companies offer long distance journeys to and from Birmingham Airport.

The airport also has its own train station: Birmingham International. Trains travel between this station and the city’s central station, Birmingham New Street, and it takes roughly 10 minutes to get between them, so the transport hubs of Birmingham are well-connected.

The airport can be reached by road via the M1, M5, M6, M42, M40 or M42.

Which terminal?

Birmingham Airport has just one large terminal, from which more than 50 airlines operate. If you’re travelling by car, simply use the postcode B26 3QJ on your sat nav or follow the signposts to get there.

Long-haul flights to destinations in Canada, the US, Asia and the Middle East are also available from Birmingham Airport, with major airlines like British Airways, United Airlines, Emirates and Qatar Airways all operating from BHX.

How to get to Birmingham Airport


Birmingham Airport is located at Junction 6 on the M42. You can find your way there by sat nav using the postcode B26 3QJ.

Birmingham Airport’s car parks are easy to find due to the clear signposts you’ll see when approaching the grounds.

If you’re travelling from Coventry, Northampton or anywhere to the east of Birmingham, simply take the M6 and find your way onto the M42.

If you’re coming from the north east of the city (Leeds, Sheffield), get onto the M1 and follow it down until you reach the M42 for Birmingham.

If you are travelling from the south east (Oxford, London), drive along the M40 and take the exit to move onto the M42. You can get to the airport from the south west (Gloucester, Bristol) by changing from the M5 to the M42.


BHX connects directly to Birmingham International train station via the free AirRail link. It takes up to 13 minutes to travel from Birmingham New Street to Birmingham International. New Street is very easy to access due to its direct links with many other train stations throughout the UK.

Bus and coach

There are five bus services covering routes from in and around Birmingham to the airport. It takes 35 minutes to get from Birmingham city centre to the airport on the X1 coach service, while many national coach services connect Birmingham with other major cities in the UK.

Birmingham Airport hotel and parking

Book one of our partner Birmingham Airport hotels with free parking to combine a good night’s rest with leaving your vehicle parked safely for as long as you are away.

If you need to a catch an early-morning flight from Birmingham Airport and you wish to book a hotel for the night before, there are plenty of options available. The area around the airport can get congested in the morning rush hour, so booking a hotel close to the terminal can save you an unnecessarily stressful journey before your flight.

There are two hotels located on the grounds of the airport itself: Hotel Ibis Birmingham Airport and Hotel Novotel. If you are travelling by car, there are no separate parking spaces in the grounds of either hotel. However, you can book your hotel and airport parking together to save both time and money ahead of your trip.

Both on-site hotels are no more than a couple of minutes’ walk from the terminal, located across the road and, therefore, only a few steps away from the main entrance. Both hotels also offer ample disabled access, free Wi-Fi in public areas and a safety deposit box. The two establishments also allow pets. In the morning, you can enjoy your complimentary breakfast buffet and ensure you don’t start your day hungry before a potentially long journey.

Useful tips

Arrive two to three hours before departure

If you’re travelling to Europe, we advise arriving at BHX around two hours before take-off, while domestic flights often only require 90 minutes to get through check-in and security. For long-haul flights, you should get there at least three hours beforehand because the queues can be sizeable.

Book special assistance 48 hours in advance

If you have mobility requirements, be sure to book special assistance two full days before your flight so you don’t experience any inconveniences or delays. You can ring +44 (0)121 767 7878. Alternatively, go to the airport website for more help and advice.
