The Department has not made a specific estimate of the proportion of High Speed 2 journeys that will be taken by passengers planning to fly through Birmingham International Airport. Modelling has estimated the number of passengers that will board HS2 trains at Birmingham Interchange in the future but does not specify what proportion of these will come from Birmingham Airport, the National Exhibition Centre or the existing rail station.
