Access to UK rail network made easier for arriving passengers
A Fast Ticket machine has been installed at Bristol International, making access to the UK rail network easier for passengers arriving at the airport.
The new machine - installed in partnership with First Great Western - will enable passengers to purchase tickets for the airport’s Flyer express coach service to Bristol Temple Meads and connections to most rail stations in the country, eliminating the need for multiple tickets for those using public transport.
For example, overseas visitors travelling to the 2012 Olympic sailing venue in Weymouth can now purchase one ticket on arrival at Bristol International, simplifying arrangements for their onward journey.
The new machine, which will be situated in the arrivals concourse, accepts credit or debit cards, reducing the need for visitors from overseas to change money immediately on arrival. The machine will also speed up the boarding process as drivers will be handling less change.
Tickets will still be available online, on board and from the customer service hosts within the terminal.
The Flyer service carried over half a million passengers in the last 12 months and will play an important role in achieving Bristol International’s target of 15 per cent of all passengers travelling by public transport in future.
Flyer services to Weston-super-Mare and Bath form part of the public transport commitments included in the airport’s planning application to North Somerset Council, consultation on which is currently underway.
Tom Hack, Commercial Manager (Ground Transportation) at Bristol International Airport, said:
“Bristol International serves as a gateway to tourist attractions across the South West for many visitors, so making the onward journey as simple and convenient as possible will help to provide a good first impression of the region.”
