Terminal Information – Departing
Birmingham Airport has one terminal. It's easy to navigate and offers a good range of restaurants, bars, shops, and other distractions. There's a flight simulator if you fancy having a go at being the pilot, and a nail bar if you want to treat yourself to some last minute pampering. There are two executive lounges, No.1 Traveller and Aspire Lounge, both of which offer complementary snacks, drinks and Wi-Fi. Entry prices start at £21.99* per person, and it's always cheaper if you pre-book.
Refreshments range from small coffee shops to full-on restaurants. There are four pubs at the airport: a Wetherspoons, an All Bar One, the Meriden, and a trendy Blanc et Noir champagne bar. Shops range from high street favourites like Accessorize and JD Sports to airport mainstays Dixons Travel and World Duty Free. Although tax free shopping doesn't apply on domestic routes, you can still enjoy a good browse.
Terminal Information – Arriving
Inverness Airport has one terminal, so it's easy to find your way to the city centre. It costs about £15* for a taxi into the city centre, and the taxi rank is just outside the arrivals hall. The Stagecoach Jet Bus service offers public transport between the airport and central Inverness, which is a cheaper alternative. If you're planning on exploring the Highlands don't forget to compare the cost of car hire at Inverness Airport.
You don't need a passport to fly on this route, but you will need to bring your photocard driving license as an official form of photographic ID. We recommend arriving at the airport no later than 90 minutes before your flight is due to depart. Remember to give yourself extra time if you're flying during "rush hour". Airports are at their busiest first thing in the morning, early in the evening, and during school holidays.
What to expect in Inverness
Despite its northern location (Inverness sits on a similar latitude to Juneau, Alaska) the temperature in Inverness is fairly mild. You can expect temperatures of 14°C in July and August, and 4°C in January. Then again, the weather in Inverness is notoriously unpredictable. Pack a good range of clothing, and don't skimp on cosy layers.
The design of Scottish bank notes differs from Bank of England, and as a result they can be quite difficult to spend in England. To be on the safe side we recommend taking as little money as possible from the cash machines in Inverness.
The nightlife scene in Inverness has been rejuvenated since the midnight pub curfew ended in 2013.
