Started as a Royal Air Force base
If you plan to fly to Dorset, then your first stop will be the majestic Bournemouth Airport, serving the borough of Christchurch and its neighbouring regions. The flight port has its origins in the early 1940’s, when it started as a Royal Air Force base. It served as an important station during the Second World War for training of troops, and support of the French Resistance.
Today, the airport has cast off its roots of combat and slipped on an ambiance of comfort style and friendly overnight accommodation. Transportation services are available onsite, as well as facilities such as cafes and currency exchange centres. At its peak, this commercial air base served over one million passengers annually.
