Cambridge Airport (IATA: CBG, ICAO: EGSC) (previously Marshall Airport Cambridge UK) is a small regional airport in South Cambridgeshire, England. It is located on the eastern outskirts of Cambridge, south of Newmarket Road and west of the village of Teversham, 1.5 NM (2.8 km; 1.7 mi) from the centre of Cambridge and approximately 50 mi (80 km) from London.
Opened in 1938, when it replaced the old airfield at Fen Ditton, 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 Cambridge and constructed in 1936–37. For many years it was the base for the Cambridge University Air Squadron.
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. Although the airport does not offer regular passenger services it is available for corporate and private use, and is home to four flying schools.
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 2011 Cambridge Airport officially broke off from Marshalls, appointed a new director and changed its name back to Cambridge Airport. Its aim is to become a "hub for the east of England". The Passenger Terminal will be completely refurbished.
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 500 acres (200 ha) 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a new airport was undertaken by Cambridgeshire County Council and planning permission was requested but subsequently withdrawn.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 (2,000 m2) hangar adding to the 1,200,000 sq ft (100,000 m2) of hangar space already on the site.
In April 2010 Marshall Aerospace announced it would not be moving from Cambridge Airport to make way for new housing. RAF Mildenhall, Waterbeach Barracks and RAF Wyton were considered as alternative sites but Marshall concluded there were "no suitable relocation options".
In January 2011, Cambridge Airport broke off from Marshall, and released plans for the airports future. Its plans are to field international flights for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
