Before the world war two began, Birmingham International airport first opened on July 8, 1939 and The Dragon Rapide was used for the airport’s first scheduled flight. Because of the outbreak of world war two in 1939, the air ministry controlled Birmingham Airport's operations. Up until 1946, all civil flights were not allowed. During this hard time, two runways were constructed.
The air ministry finally let go and gave its control of the airport to the city of Birmingham in 1960. In the following years, the runway and the terminal buildings continued to expand in order to accommodate the increase of passengers every year.
In 1979, the approval for building a new terminal was approved after a public and extensive inspection. This terminal has the capacity to accommodate over 3 million passengers. It served as a great contribution in the airport’s fast growth and success. After 10 years, a cargo facility opened at the old terminal site. The city of Birmingham turned over its ownership of the airport of Birmingham International airport Plc. In the year 1991, Eurohub, Birmingham airport's second terminal opened. It was the world's first ever airport to have international and domestic flights.
Aside from re developing the terminal, The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh provided a highway to link the two terminals. Over the years, Birmingham airport continued to provide more services high end facilities to provide convenience to its passengers. An example of which is their car parking services.
