More than 100,000 people are expected to pass through Bristol Airport this weekend. As the summer season gets underway passengers are being advised to leave extra time to get to the airport.

A £24 million expansion is underway with the first phase of the new terminal opening in July. The work is expected to cause more traffic queues than normal.

“Many of our passengers this summer will be heading off for a well-earned break, so the last thing we want is for their journey to start with the stress of nearly missing a flight.

We want Bristol Airport to be the most convenient and friendly place to start your journey, which is why major developments are underway to further enhance our facilities. However, carrying out major construction work in a busy terminal can be challenging, so we are asking passengers to help us keep disruption to a minimum by following our advice when travelling this summer.”

– Alison Roberts, Head of Terminal and Customer Operations at Bristol Airport
