The History of Norwich Airport
Norwich’s first airport was built on a former First World War aerodrome at Mousehold Heath under what is now a housing estate. The site closed during the early years of the Second World War.
Norwich Airport’s current site, which was known as RAF Horsham St Faith officially opened on 1st June 1940 as a bomber station. In September 1942 Horsham St. Faith was made available to the United States Army Air Force and was used by the USAAF until July 1945.
The airfield was transferred back to RAF Fighter Command on 10th July 1945 and remained a front-line RAF station for many years, and its squadrons participated in many post-war exercises. The station was deactivated on 1 August 1963.
The RAF left Horsham on 24 March 1967. Over the following two years the major part of the airfield and buildings were sold to Norwich City and Norfolk County Council. Norwich Airport Ltd under ownership of the County and City Councils developed the modern day Norwich International Airport. Most of the World War II buildings used by the United States Army Air Force still remain, but have been converted for a variety of purposes.
Adjacent to the airport terminal building opened in 1988 there is a memorial display relating to the USAAF, consisting of photographs, paintings, and a plaque commemorating the American use of the airfield.
In March 2004, the City and County Councils sold 80.1% of Norwich Airport Ltd to Omniport whilst retaining the further 19.9%. Omniport has also acquired 100% of Norwich Airport Travel Ltd. Since the sale to Omniport the airport has become one of the UK hubs for budget carrier Flybe and the number of flights and destinations served have rapidly increased. In 2005 a £3.5M terminal expansion programme began.
