A new Post Office open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year has opened in
Birmingham Airport's Spar convenience store in the landside area on the terminal building

Over 33,000 travellers use the airport each day and they will be able to do some last minute errands
such as returning on-line purchases of holiday clothes which didn’t quite fit, paying bills, and posting
urgent letters and cards. Employees and airport visitors will be able to use the wide range of Post
Office services, and customers of 95 per cent of UK banks can access their cash through the Post Office

Richard Gill, Birmingham Airport’s Head of Commercial, said, "With more than nine million people
a year travelling through Birmingham Airport and six thousand people working on site we want to
provide a range of services that benefit all users of the airport. We are therefore delighted to welcome
this post office to the airport and the many helpful services it gives"

Adrian Wales, Post Office Regional Manager said: "Birmingham Airport is a bustling self-contained
community so the new Post Office will complete the village atmosphere; operating round-the-clock
the branch will be open whenever customers need it. Birmingham Airport Post Office is one of only
two 24 hours branches in the UK - so far - and is one of over 1600 branches open on a Sunday

Nigel Bostock, Area Manager of Blakemore Retail said: "As an airport retailer we’re delighted to be
able to provide Post Office services in our convenience store which offers a comprehensive range
suitable for the modern traveller. This includes fresh foods and Food-To-Go items, daily essential
grocery lines specifically chosen with passengers in mind, off license and much more"
