Passengers with their own vehicles will find major motorways such as the M6, the new M6 toll road and the M42 nearby, with the M45 leading directly to Birmingham Airport.

The Birmingham International Train Station is very close to the airport, and is connected to the terminal building by the AirRail Link.

The airport now consists of one larger terminal building, whereas it used to have two terminals. This merge of the terminals only happened very recently, in 2010, and is hoped to have a positive impact on the flow of passengers throughout the airport, and increase the efficiency of the airport operations. There is now one large and combined area for checking-in and security screening processes, and one large meet and greet area for arriving passengers. Passengers departing from Birmingham should arrive in good time for their flight. Although all airline companies have different check-in requirements, it is generally at least 90 minutes before your departure, and possibly longer for international, long haul flights.

The security processes at the airport may be tedious, but they are in place for the safety of all passengers and staff members on the aircraft. Birmingham Airport has all the necessary facilities in place to ensure that the screening procedures go smoothly.

Only small quantities of liquids may be packed in hand luggage, 100 ml in each container, and a total of no more than one liter. These items should also be placed in a re-sealable and transparent plastic bag, and handed separately to the security officer for inspection. At some airports these plastic bags can be purchased from vending machines. The liquid restrictions do not apply to hold luggage, or to baby food or dietary food that will be needed during the flight.
