Bristol Airport Prepares for Long Haul With Airport Upgrade

Bristol Airport has started the next phase in its expansion with work having begun on its £6.5 million walkway.

To improve passenger experience, the walkway will feature pre-boarding zones and access to six departure gates as well as reducing congestion around the departure lounges, and is expected to be finished by the summer of next year.

What’s more, the airport says the walkway will help it prepare for the future of long haul flights from the airport.

The expansion sees Bristol Airport aiming to serve 10 million passengers a year by 2020 – the expansion includes the building of an onsite hotel, multi-storey car park and public transport interchange.
