Airlines from Bournemouth Airport

There are three airlines flying from Bournemouth, easyJet, TUI Airways and Ryanair, with Ryanair and TUI making up the bulk of the destinations. Sadly, that means that there aren't any long haul destinations direct from the airport, so if you are looking to travel to places like Dubai, Florida or the Caribbean for a holiday, you'll need to venture over to Heathrow or Gatwick airports.

With all three airlines, you can either book the flight on its own, or you can book flight inclusive holidays through an ATOL protected tour operator or travel agent. When booking a flight and hotel package in advance, you can often secure your booking with a low deposit, but you may also be able to find some great last minute deals too, especially if you can be flexible. Take a look at companies like loveholidays, On The Beach and for some of the latest deals. It's also worth looking at packages on the TUI website too.

about Bournemouth airport

About Bournemouth Airport

Originally built in 1941, the Bournemouth airport actually became a civil airport in 1944 and has since developed to become the preferred holiday airport along Dorset coast. Although the terminal is much smaller than some of its bigger alternatives, there's everything you need here from World Duty Free to a restaurant and bar, and of course, WHSmiths. But being small also has its advantages, smaller security queues, fewer delays and less to walk to get to the aircraft. There's even a FastTrack security channel. Special assistance services are available and should be discussed with your airline to ensure they can also accommodation your needs.

Getting There

Getting to Bournemouth airport is relatively straight forward if you have a car. There are multiple options for car parking with a premium service closer to the airport terminal too. In all cases, it's best to book your airport parking in advance to ensure you save your space. Pick up and drop off is available for £4 for 30 minutes.

The 737 bus is a specific bus which runs between the town centre, and Bournemouth train station and the airport which takes around 40-45 minutes depending on traffic.

Airport Hotels

Although there are no airport hotels within walking distance of Bournemouth airport terminal, there are a couple within driving distance. The two closest hotels are the 3-star Heronshaw Hotel, a country guest house with comfortable rooms about 1km away, and the Avon Causeway, which is a traditional 19th century pub with rooms just under 3km from th airport.
