Staff Travel 

Birmingham Airport is committed to encouraging employees to travel to work in a sustainable way and by supporting employees in getting to work by public transport. As part of the Airport’s runway extension project, the Airport Company is committed to reducing the number of employees who travel to work by private car, with a target of 33% of staff to travel by non single occupancy private car by 2028. We have therefore introduced a number of initiatives to encourage all employees who work at the airport to use more sustainable modes of transport.

Travel by Train

The Airport’s on-site mainline rail station, Birmingham International, provides direct services to 45 stations from its on-site rail station - making it the country’s best connected airport and an ideal way for passengers and staff get to and from the airport.

Travel by Bus

There are 5 bus routes that serve Birmingham Airport (BHX) and Birmingham International rail station which are ideal for those employees who live locally as they serve Leicester, Chelmsley Wood, Marston Green and Erdington, Birmingham City Centre, Coventry and Sutton Coldfield.

Discounted Travel Pass Scheme

Birmingham Airport Limited are committed to encouraging staff to travel by sustainable means and therefore work in partnership with Transport for West Midlands and National Express to offer discounted annual travel passes. The travel pass is purchased in full by BAL and the employee pass for the pass monthly through their salary.

Birmingham Airport Limited employees can benefit from a 25% discount on both an annual bus pass and bus/train pass combined in addition to a 22.5% discount on an annual train pass.

Travel by Bike

We actively encourage employees to cycle to work as it is more sustainable than most other modes of transport. There are approximately 60 cycle storage lockers provided for employees at the airport, 30 of which are located behind Diamond House and the remaining 30 are found on the corner of Trident Road and Comet Road. If you would like access to a locker, please contact Birmingham Airport's Transport planning analyst Alex Johnson on [email protected].

Birmingham Airport has also joined forces with Halfords on a scheme which enables Birmingham Airport employees to hire/ purchase a bike, which is paid through salary over a twelve month period.

Travel by Car

The employee parking is located in Car Park 6. A 6 minute partially covered walking route is available from the car park to the terminal building and a free bus service is also be provided. In order to access the car park by vehicle employees will need to have their ID card activated for car park use in the ID Centre, 1st floor Diamond House.

All Birmingham Airport Employees can now benefit from a 20% discount if they take out an M6 Toll Tag account. If you are interested in joining the scheme, please follow the instructions on the flyer below:
