I don't see how it will. HS2 will give people from London faster access to Birmingham (And Manchester) Airport...where are people gonna fly from? Heathrow, with all its extra capacity and room to expand? lol

BHX standard
Birmingham Airport records the busiest month in the airport's 75 year history.

Birmingham Airport has recorded the busiest month in its 75 year history, as over one million passengers used the Midlands airport during August.

Passenger figures peaked at 1,104,831 last month, beating the previous record achieved back in August 2008, by 2.3%.

This is the fifth consecutive record-breaking month for the Airport, as April, May, June and July also saw previous records for the month smashed. Last month’s passenger numbers increased by 5.2% over August last year.

There was also a 1% increase in long haul passenger traffic with flights operating to Beijing, Dubai, Delhi, Egypt, Islamabad, Jamaica, Mexico, New York and Toronto in August.

Commenting on this milestone month, the Airport’s Chief Executive Paul Kehoe, said: “Achieving the busiest month in the Airport’s 75 year history is a proud moment, especially as it follows four consecutive months where passenger records have been broken.

“Passengers are voting with their feet and more and more are choosing to fly from Birmingham. The demand is clearly there, but we want to make sure this trend continues.

“We’ve invested significantly in recent years, including a newly extended runway, which allows departing aircraft to fly to more long haul destinations than ever before. The capability to serve more long haul destinations will play a key role in attracting more passengers and support future growth.”

Scheduled services that saw particular growth included Toulouse (+251.3%), Milan (+86.6%), Stuttgart (+70.5%), Dubrovnik (+68.3%), Aberdeen (53.6%), Jersey (+49.5%), Shannon (+49.4%) and Ashkhabad (+37.9).

Charter destinations experiencing growth during August were China (+100%), Italy (+37.8%), Mexico (+25%), Portugal (+22.4%), Cyprus (+12.6%) and Jamaica (+11.7%).

Scheduled traffic in August accounted for 77.3% with charter flights making up the remaining 22.7%.

There are rumours going around that AA are coming back to BHX in Summer 2015 and launching BHX-New York JFK.
This would be direct competition for United who operate daily flights between BHX-EWR.

AA have operated from BHX before when they used to operate daily BHX-ORD flights.


If AA return to BHX, this would be a great boost to the airport and would set the airport up for a great 2015.

Icelandair launch there new flights from BHX in February 2015 and Air India are going daily once they receive there next 787.

That would be interesting to see a double-daily BHX-NYC service... to which other destinations in North America would you want to see operating from Birmingham?

I think he is referring to the fact that BHX will have 2 x flights per day to the city of New York in Summer 2015.

AA-Daily to JFK
UA-Daily to EWR

I would definately like to see the return of flights between BHX and Chicago ORD, Chicago is actually a twin city to Birmingham so these connections should be available. Hopefully AA see potential in BHX next year but one step at a time.

This is also an interesting development becouse BHX has NO (YES NO) Oneworld airlines so this is a massive change. BHX is definately a Star Alliance airport, with the likes of United, Lufthansa, Turkish Airlines, Swiss and Air India.
