Norwich Airport

Norwich Airport, first opened at the beginning of World War Two as an RAF base that was let to the US Air Force, is situated a few miles from the city of Norwich in Norfolk, and has a wide variety of flights to airports across Europe and in the UK. It is a busy site for helicopters servicing the North Sea oil rigs, and has been home to commercial flights since it was decommissioned in 1967.

In the 21st century there has been much improvement to the site with improved terminal buildings and added on site facilities, and flights to some of the most popular European holiday destinations are now part of a busy weekly schedule. Amsterdam, the channel islands of Guernsey and Jersey, Alicante and Corfu are all regular destinations and the airport handles over 100,000 passengers to Amsterdam alone each year.

Easily accessible by road and with good local rail links, Norwich Airport is a useful and thriving local provincial airport that provides vital links between Norfolk and the rest o the country – plus Europe – by air and with improved terminal buildings, a good range of shops and facilities and some very decent nearby hotels it serves its local catchment area very well indeed.

It is also used by the local air ambulance services and is the base for the Norfolk Police helicopter, both facilities that are of local importance and that hold the airport in strong stead, and it is to be hoped that in future Norwich Airport can continue to serve its local area.
