Birmingham Airport was first opened in 1939 as a means of servicing local residents and the city’s important industry. In 1991, a second terminal was opened and became the first terminal in the world to combine domestic and international passengers, and passenger numbers continued to increase. In the beginning of 2011, the decision was made to merge both terminals and facilities, combining security and facilitating an increased amount of traffic in the future. Today, Birmingham Airport is the second largest airport in the UK outside of London and has been regarded as the best business airport in the country.
