Birmingham Airport opens visitor centre

Birmingham Airport has created a new interactive visitor experience for both business and leisure travellers in the region.

As part of a major development project the regional hub has created an 18-metre-long interactive wall, which will be triggered by a motion sensor. A system has been installed to provide a soundtrack while passengers move down the walkway.

Information on the region and its attractions will also be offered in a new visitor centre located in Terminal One.

Paul Kehoe, chief executive of Birmingham International Airport, said that the city is an ideal place from which to explore the UK.

"Birmingham’s reputation continues to rise and is truly a destination which provides the perfect base for foreign visitors," he explained.

Last month, the government announced that Birmingham Airport would be included in its plans for a high-speed rail project.

Trains on the network will be able to travel up to 250 mph and will reduce the time it takes to travel between the capital and Birmingham airport to 90 minutes.
