Brighton City Airport
We are the oldest continuous licensed airport in the UK with Harold Piffard courageously flying from here in 1910. The airport stays true to its founders’ vision in the early 1900s: to create an aerodrome that could be available for expert and student aviators of all nations. Used by a diverse range of aircraft on a daily basis, Brighton City Airport proves to be the perfect gateway to the south coast of England.
Opportunities at the airport
Whether you are just starting out or looking to build on an already successful career, Brighton City Airport could provide the perfect career opportunity for you. We are always looking for talented, qualified people to join our small, forward-thinking business. Our unique culture is distinguished by a shared passion – aviation. No two days are the same, one day you could be greeting a celebrity or executive flight and another, supporting a training visit from a military aircraft. Everyone in airport operations works together to deliver the best possible service, while always holding safety in the highest regard. See below for opportunities based in Airport Operations, as well as with other businesses based here.
