Humberside Airport is a key national and international gateway to Northern and Eastern England, connecting over half a million passengers to 30 destinations every year. The Airport is also home to the UK’s second largest heliport, serving the offshore industry in the North Sea.

The airport was previously a Royal Air Force base, RAF Kirmington, opened in 1941 during World War II, from which No. 166 Squadron RAF operated the Avro Lancaster. The site was abandoned after the war in 1945, and lay unused until 1974 when the local council re-opened the site as Kirmington Airport.

With around 700 people employed on-site and regular scheduled and charter services operated by some of the world’s leading airlines, their growth and success are shared by their whole community.

On current projections, around 1 million passengers will be travelling through Humberside Airport every year by 2016. The Airport’s growth is a massive opportunity; crucial to the prosperity of their whole region. But that growth must be sustainable. Their Master Plan to 2030 describes how best to manage the positive and negative impact of growth.

It is a small international airport, owned by the Manchester Airports Group (MAG), the largest UK-owned airport group, acquiring Humberside Airport in 1999. In 2008, MAG announced that it was conducting a review of their strategy for Humberside Airport, and all options including disposal were under consideration. In December 2008, MAG announced they intend to retain Humberside Airport for another three to five years.
