HISTORY:

Shoreham Airport In 1930 the municipal authorities of Brighton, Hove and Worthing formed a joint committee to establish Shoreham as the municipal airport for three towns. Construction on the Terminal Building began in November 1934.

During 1935 the Croydon based company Olley Air Services Ltd., was appointed to manage the aerodrome and a service, Croydon-Shoreham-Deauville was started on the l3th July. On the 13th June 1936 this exquisite art-deco Terminal Building was officially opened by the Mayors of Brighton, Hove and Worthing. The building remains today very much in its original shape and as always, is still very much open to the public.

The opening day at Shoreham hosted an air-show and companies such as Channel Air Ferries, Railway Air Services and Jersey Airways soon started to use the airport.

Within the Terminal Building's long history, it has seen international and domestic departures and arrivals including some of the world's largest airlines. With the outbreak of war in 1939 international airline operators were removed from London (Croydon) Airport to Shoreham. These include names like Sabena, DDL, KLM and the predecessor of British Airways, Imperial Airways. Some of the destinations flown to by the above airlines included Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Malmo and Brussels.

Shoreham Airport is still at the forefront of general aviation in this country. The Terminal Building is now a Grade II listed building and is still in every day use by business, training and pleasure fliers alike including many visitors from Europe. Many of the fixtures are original including the Whispering Gallery on the first floor and the main window design above the main entrance.
