About Bournemouth Airport (BOH)

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.
