Brighton City Airport (formerly known as Shoreham Airport) is one of the world's oldest commercial aerodromes, with the first recorded flight taking place in 1910. Today, the airfield remains at the forefront of British Aviation, as a major centre for pilot training, pleasure flights and private aircraft charters. It is one of the busiest, and most captivating, general aviation airfields within the UK.


Why not experience the joy of flight by booking a trial flying lesson? Or you can explore the gorgeous South coast by taking a leisure-experience flight in the skies above Sussex. You can experience true luxury, by arranging a private aircraft charter to a destination of your choosing in the UK, Europe and beyond. Whether you’re flying for business or pleasure, we have exceptional handling facilities to enhance your journey.


The airport boasts a historical Main Terminal, opened in 1936. With its geometric exterior and original Art Deco features, and having even been the 'star’ of many films and TV dramas, the building still stands proud today. In addition, the Main Terminal holds stylish conference rooms, with excellent runway views, to hire for any occasion.


The airfield is home to the ever-popular Hummingbird Restaurant, where patrons can enjoy delicious home-cooked food, whilst drinking in the views of our bustling airport. Restaurant-goers can even step outside onto the Hummingbird’s very own terrace, offering panoramic scenes of the airfield, the Gothic Chapel of Lancing College, and beyond to the rolling hills of the South Downs National Park.


Open 7 days a week, Brighton City Airport offers favourable access to everything the South Coast has to offer – Minutes from the A27, the airport possesses excellent road connections to the surrounding towns and cities. Moreover, Brighton City Airport has distinguished transport links to London and beyond.
