Regional & City Airports owns and operates Bournemouth Airport, Coventry Airport, Exeter Airport and Norwich Airport, and holds a management contract Solent Airport Daedalus. Please click below to find out how we have maximised the operating and growth potential of each of our airports.
Bournemouth Airport provides connectivity to a wide range of European and domestic destinations, serving a large southern UK catchment area. We have ambitious plans to grow the route network available to travellers to and from the region in the years ahead. The airport is home to a growing air freight operation providing an efficient and cost-effective route to market, avoiding the congestion associated with the traditional UK cargo hubs. The airport is also home to a substantial business park, which hosts a wide range of aviation and non-aviation businesses, and which has significant potential for growth as a core part of the region’s employment development strategy.
Situated in the West Midlands, Coventry Airport handled around 30,000 aircraft movements in the past 12 months, supporting a range of General Aviation operations from private aviation to commercial flight training.
Exeter Airport has become a key asset to the economies of Exeter, Devon and the wider South West.
The airport provides air links to a wide range of domestic and international destinations making it critical to businesses in the South West as a regional transport and Royal Mail hub. It is also an integral component of the Exeter and East Devon Growth Point which is a significant infrastructure investment project unrivalled in size in the UK.
Norwich Airport is the principal aerial gateway to and from East Anglia, serving Norfolk and Suffolk and surrounding counties. It has a long history and sound levels of activity on scheduled and charter passenger activities to both European and domestic destinations, and as an aircraft maintenance base and a major operating hub for the southern North Sea oil and gas industry.
Solent Airport, formerly Daedalus airfield, serves the south coast and Isle of Wight area for private aircraft and passengers flying on both business and leisure.
Facilities at Solent Airport include a new executive aviation centre, aircraft refuelling services, on site engineering, hangarage and outdoor parking, as well as flying tuition and flight experiences.
