Norwich Airport basics

Norwich airport sits just two and a half miles north of Norwich, at Hellesdon. The current site, originally RAF Horsham St Faith, was officially opened in 1940 as a bomber station. These days it serves 1.5 million people within a 90 minute radius across Norfolk, Suffolk and North Cambridgeshire. In recent years the airport’s owners have invested heavily in refurbishing the terminal building and flight Information system, aircraft parking, new radar equipment, air traffic control, security updates and more, delivering a smooth and enjoyable experience.
