Airport Surface Access Strategy
Excellent connectivity for all modes of transport is essential if the airport is to continue to grow sustainably, reduce carbon output, and minimise the impact on the surrounding road network. We have therefore produced an ‘Airport Surface Access Strategy’ (ASAS).
This sets out at a strategic level how the airport will improve and encourage all the different ways that passengers, staff and goods get to and from the airport over the next five years and beyond with a particular emphasis on sustainable transport.
Developing Surface Access
The Airport Surface Access Strategy sets out a framework for the development of surface access at the Airport. It reviews current surface access arrangements, recent trends on modal shares and sets new challenging modal share targets for the future.
The Strategy also outlines policies which will form the basis of detailed actions plans to help achieve future mode share targets. An air transport journey begins and ends with surface access and the Airport Company will work with its partners and the stakeholders to develop excellent surface access for the Airport and to make journeys to and from Birmingham Airport part of a seamless travel experience.
The Airport Surface Access Strategy has been developed to help ensure a co-ordinated approach continues to be taken, addressing future requirements in a sustainable manner.
