History of Bournemouth International Airport

The air base itself was established in 1941 year, and it was from here that British planes went to destroy German fortifications and air targets.

At the end of the Second World War, the airport began to service regular flights across the UK, which was the starting point for the development of this air harbor, however, the transportation mainly concerned freight and mail.



At the end of the 60-ies of the last century, Bournemouth Airport began to serve passenger flights for the first time, while the air service mainly concerned local lines, and flights on international routes from this air harbor began in the 80-ies.

Nevertheless, in the following years, the main indicators of the activity of the air harbor began to fall steadily, and only during the period from 2015 to 2017 year, the volume of passengers served remained approximately at the same level.
