Whether you’re here for a few minutes or a few hours, we want you to enjoy your visit to Birmingham Airport. Start your trip off right with all the amenities in our departure lounge.
Keep your energy up
Flying can be exhausting, particularly if you’re running late. Top up your energy reserves with a healthy drink from Joe and The Juice. Choose between a super-fast health shot like the Electro Shot or an energizing smoothie like the aptly named Energizer.
Just because you’re in a rush doesn’t mean can’t indulge in some me-time. Try some of the free beauty services at World Duty Free, such as L'Occitane hand massages or a 10-minute MAC makeover. Spoil yourself and feel truly ready for take-off.
Get a full makeover
Sit back and relax at Cloud Spa. They have a full range of beauty treatments available including nails, brows and lashes, as well as relaxing massages. Some treatments take as little as 15 minutes and there’s no need to book ahead. Simply turn up and prepare to be pampered.
Pick up some last-minute essentials
If you find that you’ve forgotten your toothpaste in the rush, don’t worry. With three Boots outlets at the airport, you’ll be able to pick up any travel and health essentials you may have left behind – from medication and make up to sunblock and mobile phone chargers.
We always recommend arriving at least 2 hours before your flight, as this means you have plenty of time to get through security and enjoy everything Birmingham Airport has to offer.
Browse our luxury lines
Whatever your weakness, you’re sure to find something that catches your eye in our Departure Lounge shops. Shop eye-candy in the form of designer glasses at Eyelove, some spectacular glitzy jewellery at Pandora, or quality fashion goodies at Kurt Geiger or Victoria’s Secret.
Grab a gift
Whether you’re looking to treat yourself or a loved one, there are many top of the line brands on offer in the airport – perfect for a little indulgence.
The Watch Collection has just launched two new brands for you to peruse – Frederique Constant and Raymond Weil – so spend some time admiring their gorgeous timepieces.
Whether you’ve made the conscious decision to leave plenty of time for the airport, or you’ve found yourself on a long layover, there’s plenty here to keep you occupied.
Have a sit-down meal
If you’ve got time to spare, enjoy a proper sit-down meal at one of our restaurants. Giraffe has family-style dishes with a global twist, including burgers, salads and all-day brunch. All Bar One serves elegant cocktails as well as a full menu of small plates and main courses. Wetherspoon’s has comforting pub classics, while Frankie & Benny’s offers New York Italian-inspired dishes and a special gluten-free menu.
Settle down with a good book
Bring your own or pick up something new at Pocket Shop We Love Booooks, where the friendly staff will be able to help you find your new favourite read. Find a quiet corner in Costa, Café Nero or Caffè Ritazza to read your book and treat yourself to a hot drink.
We recommend the new Costa in the south departure lounge; it's the perfect spot to enjoy a slightly quieter bite to eat or a drink while you wait for your flight. This spot is particularly good for business travellers as its right by the Flybe and Ryanair gates.
