Thank You, we went by car in May, and that was very easy, but need the Train this time and travelling from the North West, just hoped that there wasn't a long hike at the Airport. Would you say half hour would be long enough to allow to get to the check-in area. It's just that the flights we're looking at so very cheap from Birmingham in September 09. Sorry to want so much detail Alan.
I really couldn't say. I used to use Birmingham Intl a lot when travelling on business. But, as you know it's far easier with these things if you're on your own and don't have to worry about others keeping up with you.
It'll also depend of course on the time of day and the number of other travellers using the station.
I've always preferred arriving there by rail because of the ease of changeover from the station to the airport. Whereas getting into and out of the carparks can be a bit of a nightmare at times.
