Exeter Airport , formerly Exeter International Airport, is an airport located at Clyst Honiton in the District of East Devon close to the city of Exeter and within the county of Devon, South West England. In 2007 the airport handled over 1 million passengers for the first time, although passenger throughput subsequently declined. In 2016 it handled 847,257 passengers, a 3.1% increase compared with 2015. Exeter has a CAA Public Use Aerodrome Licence that allows flights for the public transport of passengers or for flying instruction. The airport offers both scheduled and holiday charter flights within the United Kingdom and Europe.
Exeter Airport is located 4 miles east of the city of Exeter and is approximately 170 miles south west of London. To the south, it is connected by the A30 dual carriageway which can be accessed from the east and the M5 in the west, just 1.5 miles away. The M5 enables good links with Bristol and the Midlands. There is no railway station at the airport, and the closest station is Cranbrook railway station which is 2.2 miles away by road . Exeter St Davids railway station has a bus link and is therefore easier for passengers using the airport.
