Extra Info:

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.
