Bournemouth Airport (aka Hurn Airport and Bournemouth International Airport) is a southern English airport situated north-northeast of Bournemouth. In 1941, the location was established as RAF Hurn, but in 1944, it was handed over to local authorities. Hurn functioned as London's international airport for a brief time (between 1944 and 1946) before Heathrow's facilities were built.
Flights now cover Western Europe and the Mediterranean region on a regular basis, as well as charter and seasonal services serving North Africa, North America, and the Caribbean.
The airport's passenger counts peaked in 2007, when slightly over one million people went through. The overall number of passengers in 2019 was estimated to be approximately 803,000.
