Other less convenient ways to reach Birmingham Airport include:
Rail transport to Birmingham Airport
Birmingham Airport can be reached by train if you are prepared to make the train journey and additional monorail journey to get to the terminal. The airport is served by Birmingham International Station. Once at the station you will need to transfer to the courtesy Air Rail Link monorail system which operates between 05:15 and 02:00.
Coach transport to Birmingham Airport
Bus and coach transport to Birmingham Airport can be far less convenient and take more time than driving to the airport yourself. Local bus services including the 900 and 966 connect Birmingham Airport to Birmingham, Coventry, Erdington and Solihulll where you will need exact change when you buy a ticket on board. Coach services to the airport are operated a National Express and Megabus coach companies from around the UK. Both bus and coach services will drop you a short walk from the check-in area at Birmingham Airport so it is important to factor this into your journey.
Taxi transport to Birmingham Airport
Taxis operate from outside the terminal building at Birmingham Airport and you can pre-book these in advance for your journey to the airport if you are coming from the local area. However, with the fantastic on-airport parking available at Birmingham Airport within walking distance of the terminal buildings, you may prefer to enjoy the convenience of working to your own timescale and parking your car in one of the secured car parks for the duration of your holiday or business trip.
