Many regional airports have flights into Plymouth. There are no international flights unless you count those from Cork and Dublin. Air Southwest is the main operator and classes itself as a budget airline.

What is the Airport Like?
It’s small as befits a regional airport but relatively modern inside. There’s plenty of parking there for the number of passengers and it has a small but adequate range of facilities. The airport is professionally run and has easy links to the resorts of Devon and Cornwall along the A38.

What do I do When I Arrive at the Airport?
Baggage collection is quick and easy. There are no security checks for domestic passengers so you should be out in less than 15 minutes from landing. There is a small airport information desk plus stands with leaflets for tourist attractions plus a notice board with adverts from local accommodation providers. Assistance for passengers with reduced mobility is available provided that 48 hours’ notice has been given.

What are the Facilities Like for Departing Passengers?

If you are hungry at the airport, there’s a small café too offering a range of hot and cold snacks together with hot and cold drinks. Wi-Fi capability isn’t available at the airport.

Your first view of Plymouth should be from either Plymouth Hoe from where you can look down over Plymouth Sound and Drake Island, the Navy training base or from the top of the Moat House Tower from where you can look over the city centre.

Plymouth is the city of Drake and Raleigh and there are many memorials and landmarks dedicated to them. The Hoe is where Drake played bowls before heading off to defeat the Spanish Armada. If you’ve hired a car another fascinating area of the city is the Barbican, the city’s old quarter.
