Bournemouth Airport is a key national and international gateway to Southern England, connecting over 900,000 passengers to over 60 destinations every year.

The airport opened as RAF Hurn and as part of its wartime duties, it was home to a range of aircraft, including Spitfires, Wellingtons and Typhoons. Towards the end of 1942, it became a base for a number of American squadrons.

With around 125 people directly employed on-site and regular scheduled and charter services operated by some of Europe’s leading airlines, our growth and success are shared by our whole community.

On current projections, around 3 million passengers will be travelling through Bournemouth Airport every year by 2014/15. The airport’s growth is a massive opportunity; crucial to the prosperity of our whole region. But that growth must be sustainable. Our Master Plan to 2030 describes how best to manage the positive and negative impact of growth.

Their Values

At Bournemouth Airport, it’s their promise to make things easy for you.

They believe that your journey through their airport should be a uniquely positive experience; smooth, efficient and hassle-free. They value their people and invest in them to help deliver ever-improving customer service. At present the airport is undergoing a Euro32 million redevelopment programme and whilst this work is in progress there will, inevitably, be some disruption to passengers. However they will endeavour to keep this disruption to a minimum.

They continually work to be a responsible neighbour, with a long-term commitment to support their whole community.
