Cambridge International Airport (IATA: CBGICAO: EGSC), previously Marshall Airport Cambridge UK, is a regional airport in Cambridgeshire, England. It is located on the eastern outskirts of Cambridge, south of Newmarket Road and west of the village of Teversham, Script error: No such module "convert". from the centre of Cambridge and approximately Script error: No such module "convert". from London.

Marshall of Cambridge Aerospace Limited has a CAA Public Use Aerodrome Licence (Number P433) that allows flights for the public transport of passengers or for flying instruction.[3] The airport is available for corporate and private use, and is home to four flying schools. Passenger services operate to a small number of European destinations.

History

Early years

Opened in 1938, when it replaced the old airfield at Fen Ditton,[4] the airport is owned and operated by Marshall Aerospace, a Cambridge-based company with many years' history servicing civilian and military contracts. The main building, which is a Grade II listed building, was designed by the architect Harold Tomlinson of the University of Cambridge and constructed in 1936–37.[5][6] For many years it was the base for the Cambridge University Air Squadron.

Development since the 2000s

In 2000, a proposal was created to relocate the airport to a new site away from the city, which would have freed up Script error: No such module "convert". of land for the building of several thousand new homes. A study for a new airport was undertaken by Cambridgeshire County Council and planning permission was requested but withdrawn. In April 2010 Marshall Aerospace again announced it would not be moving from Cambridge Airport to make way for new housing. RAF Mildenhall, Waterbeach Barracks and RAF Wyton were considered as alternative sites but Marshall concluded there were "no suitable relocation options".[7][8]

In October 2008, to coincide with the opening of the new Marshall Business Aviation Centre, the airport's name was changed from Cambridge City Airport to Marshall Airport Cambridge UK.[9] The name was changed again to Cambridge Airport in 2011 as plans were announced for an expansion of the airport following the installation of instrument landing systems and new hangars.[10]

In 2012 the airport introduced charter flights to Italy as well as regular flights to the Channel Islands. These were the first scheduled flights from the airport since 2006.[11][12] The airport currently hosts seasonal charter routes operated by Blue Islands to Jersey, Eastern Airways to Verona[13] and Inghams to Chambery [14] while British Airways started scheduled services to Gothenburg in 2015.
