Birmingham Airport has become a one terminal facility, with terminals one and two merged to form a single terminal for all arrivals and departures. All departing passengers will now use a new enlarged & combined security search area and single departures area with self-service and manned check-in desks. Inbound passengers will arrive into a single meeting and greeting area.

Further work at the airport will see the opening of a new duty free shopping area and fashion house in the next few months. Birmingham Airport Operations Director, Will Heynes, stated that this £13 million project puts the airport in a stronger position to attract new customers and showcase the airport as the region’s global gateway. This project will create a smoother journey through the terminal and improve overall efficiency.
