A few months ago, I wrote a post called Navigating BHX which gave my top tips on travelling through Birmingham Airport.

Unless I’m travelling long-haul, I only travel with hand luggage. I’ve perfected my packing skills so I can easily be away for a week and just take hand luggage. I also hate waiting around at the airport so I’m known for leaving the absolute minimum amount of time before my flight. As such, planning and preparation really is vital to airport success.
