Birmingham International Airport (IATA: BHX, ICAO: EGBB) is a major airport located on the border of the city of Birmingham and borough of Solihull (and mostly in the latter) in the West Midlands, England.

Status
Birmingham airport is the fifth busiest airport in the UK, and handles (as of 2003) eight million passengers a year. It presently offers many domestic flights in addition to destinations across Europe and some flights to the Indian subcontinent, the Middle East and North America.

The airport is next to the M42 motorway and A45 main road. It is also served by Birmingham International railway station on the Birmingham to London line.

Future
It is possible that a second main, parallel, runway will be built in the near future, or the existing runway extended, to cope with increasing demand. These proposals are very controversial, with much opposition from environmentalists and local residents.

History
The airport was opened at Elmdon on 8 July 1939, and was owned and operated by Birmingham City Council. During the Second World War the airport was requisitioned by the Air Ministry and was used by the RAF for military purposes. It returned to civilian use in July 1946, though still under government control.

During the post-war years, public events, such as air fairs and even circuit-races were held on the site. The City of Birmingham took over responsibility again in 1960, and ownership of the airport passed to the newly-formed West Midlands County Council in 1974.
