Welcome to Birmingham economy
Birmingham has a thriving economy partly on account of the fantastic account.
We think that it is often very tricky for tourists to find out what all their choices are when they want to leave the city and go away on holiday or to go travelling. And, indeed, it’s just as hard for people in other cities, who want to see friends, or experience our world here in the Midlands.
People are not identical, and want to have their own opinions about their transport choices.
It is vital to demonstrate the true price of making a journey, both in terms of time and cost. For example, a twenty-pound saving flying from Heathrow instead of Birmingham can seem like a lot less when you take into account the cost and time incurred in getting to the airport.
Making a good choice generally involves both information and experience. We have subsequently included our own booking guides for almost all things to do with making a journey.
There have been differing reports about an exciting new service by an exciting new airline. The airline is supposed to be offering a twelve times monthly service to the Gulf state from this summer, with onward links to Pakistan, India and other destinations in the continent.
We haven't got any proper confirmation on this and it seems as if someone may have jumped the gun a little. Certainly the Birmingham media website seems reticent on the issue.
Sadly we have all been here previously (those who recall the Gulf Air announcement debacle anyhow). We will thus take on a patient wait and see.
But if we don’t choose to jump the gun, wouldn't it be better news for travellers heading in an eastern direction? Of course. Better competition, especially to India would be welcomed with open arms.
