Cambridge Airport.
Marshall Airport Cambridge UK (previously Cambridge City Airport) is a small regional airport located in eastern Englandmarker, on the eastern outskirts of Cambridgemarker, Englandmarker, south of Newmarket Roadmarker and west of the village of Tevershammarker, from the centre of Cambridge and approximately from Londonmarker.

Opened in 1938, the airport is owned and operated by Marshall Aerospace, a Cambridge based company with many years' history servicing civilian and military contracts. The main building was designed by the architect Harold Tomlinson of the University of Cambridgemarker and constructed 1936–37.

Although the airport does not offer regular passenger services it is available for corporate and private use, and is home to four flying schools.

Marshall of Cambridge Aerospace Limited has a CAA Public Use Aerodrome Licence (Number P433) that allows flights for the public transport of passengers or for flying instruction.

In October 2008, to coincide with the opening of the new Marshall Business Aviation Centre, the airport's name was changed from Cambridge City Airport to Marshall Airport Cambridge UK.

In 2008, the airport posted a gain of 9.07% over 2007 in total aircraft movements, going from 38,983 to 42,520.

Future

There has been a great deal of speculation over the past five years regarding the future of Cambridge Airport. Land available for building in Cambridge is at a premium, but the city is surrounded by large areas of green belt land on which building new housing is prohibited. In 2000, a proposal was created to relocate the airport to a new site away from the city, which would have freed up of land for the building of several thousand new homes. A study for a new airport was undertaken by Cambridgeshire County Council and planning permission was requested but subsequently withdrawn.

Despite speculation regarding the airport's future Marshall Aerospace has continued to develop the site. In Autumn 2008 new business aviation facilities were opened, including a new 20,000 sq ft hangar adding to the 1,200,000 sq ft of hangarage already on the site.
