Bristol Airport reacted to the proposal it should be closed and replaced with a larger airport inside Wales by insisting it is "well positioned to meet the connectivity requirements of both regions in the medium and long term."
"No doubt the Airports Commission will receive many proposals for airport schemes right across the UK. It is important that these are deliverable solutions not somewhat far-fetched proposals reliant on the forced closure of a successful, privately owned airport which supports thousands of jobs."
The Severnside Airport proposal has been submitted to the UK Government's Airports Commission, which is looking into airport capacity around the UK. The commission says it is not responding to individual bits of evidence currently.
