UK’s busiest general aviation airport

Gloucestershire Airport the UK’s busiest general aviation airport, ranking top in the Civil Aviation Authority’s airports for aircraft movements in 2023. It has its own fire station and two business parks spanning a combined 700,000 square foot, including the recently completed CGX Connect. 

The airport received a much-needed multi-million pound investment in 2021, which was funded by the Gloucestershire Local Enterprise Partnership, Gloucester City and Cheltenham Borough Councils. These upgrades meant the north-south runway could be closed, freeing up over 300,000 square foot of surplus land for development. 

In December 2023, Cheltenham Borough Council and Gloucester City Council, jointly announced their intention to seek new investors for the acquisition of Gloucestershire Airport Ltd. 

The two councils emphasised the significance of the airport to the regional economy and confirmed their decision to sell it as an operational airport, with measures in place to secure its future as a commercially viable business for the area. This process is currently ongoing.  Please see our News section for the latest information.
