Plymouth City Airport is an airport located within the City of Plymouth 3.5 NM (6.5 km; 4.0 mi) north northeast of Plymouth city centre in Devon, England. Plymouth Airport opened on this site in 1925 and was officially opened by the Edward VIII, as Prince of Wales, in 1931.
In 2009, 157,933 passengers passed through Plymouth Airport, a sharp increase of 34.0% on the 2008 total of 117,823 making Plymouth one of the only UK airports experiencing significant growth during the period. However, following the withdrawal of London flights in early 2011, the airport's owners said passenger totals had fallen to fewer than 100 a day. The London Stock Exchange was notified on 28 April 2011 that the airport would close by the end of the year.
The airport closed and ceased all operations on 23rd December 2011.
