Rewards and benefits - What you get in return

At Bristol Airport, we’re committed to providing our employees with a broad range of rewards and benefits.


Time away from work

Working in such a busy environment, we all need time to recharge our batteries, so we offer all employees 25 days holiday, rising incrementally after 2 years’ service to a maximum of 29 days.

We also have a range of policies in place to help support you with caring responsibilities, from enhanced parental care policies to generous sickness schemes, income protection insurance and flexible working options.

Private Health Care & Health Screenings

Looking after your health

To help ensure you are well looked after, we provide access to a Company funded private medical health insurance scheme, which includes subsidized dental care, following successful completion of your probation. You can also choose to include cover for your loved ones at an additional cost.

With the benefit of private health insurance, you will also have unlimited, 24/7 access to a free digital GP service provided by Babylon.

We know that day to day life can bring with it many challenges so, to help when you may need some expert support and advice, we provide a free and confidential Employee Assistance Programme to all employees which includes a 24/7 counselling service.

Pension & Life Assurance


Bristol Airport operates a Bonus Scheme which is linked to our overall financial performance each year, as we are very aware that it is a team effort, and we want to recognise everyone’s contribution. Details vary from year to year as it is non-contractual, and will be made available at offer stage.

We know how much our team contributes to our future, so we look out for theirs with a Group Pension scheme and generous company contribution where we match your contribution plus 2% (up to a maximum of 9%). Not only that, but we provide Company funded financial advice to support you in your decision making.

No-one wants to pay more tax than they must, and there are a small number of benefits that HMRC allows you to pay for via salary exchange, which reduces the amount of Income Tax and National Insurance you pay. These include the Cycle to Work scheme and your pension.

We offer all our Bristol Airport employees life cover under our Group Life Assurance Policy which will pay up to 6 times your basic salary to your nominated beneficiaries should you sadly pass away whilst in our employ.

We have a generous Occupational Sick Pay Scheme, supplemented by our free Income Protection insurance which will cover up to 66% of your salary for 2 years should you suffer a prolonged illness.


Getting to work

There are Flyer bus services from both Bristol and Weston, and we offer heavily subsidised travel for colleagues commuting to the Airport this way (including interview attendance if pre-arranged),.

If you drive to work, we incentivise lift sharing with premium parking spaces that are closer to your office or bus stop, and offer free, on-site parking and a free bus transfer to the Terminal (please note terms and conditions vary for different employers at the Airport).

Learning and DevelopmentBonus Scheme

We don’t want to stand still – we are continuously looking to improve – and we will support you in your personal development too. You will have regular conversations with your line manager and there are lots of options to support you on your journey including online and in-house courses, secondments, funding for further/professional qualifications and entry level apprenticeships.

Free on-site gym

Airport discounts and savings

As you’d expect, working at an airport has its many perks. Aside from the exciting environment, you’ll also have access to many discounts across a range of the food and retail outlets in the Terminal and the Executive Lounge.

You’ll also have access to hundreds of World Duty Free discounts including on-line ordering and delivery to your home address through our portal if you’re unable to access the Terminal.

All Bristol Airport colleagues are eligible to join the Employee Discount Club which gives you access to great deals, discounts and local offers! Discounts will vary, however, expect to see between 10% to 49% off or exclusive VIP packages.

Looking to get fitter or want to adopt a more environmentally friendly means of commuting? Our Cycle to Work Scheme enables you to use Salary Sacrifice to purchase a bike (including electric) up to a £4000 cost, which gives you even greater choice!

For those eager employees wishing to build fitness into their working day we have a free, on-site gym.

We also offer free holiday car parking for colleagues, and discounted parking for your friends and family.

Getting the balance right

Getting the Balance Right

We appreciate the importance of balancing work with life outside of the Airport, and so we support the right to flexible working from day one of your employment with us and, where appropriate, hybrid working is also offered

Get Involved

Employee Forum - People Planet Place (PPP)

Members of People Planet Place meet monthly to discuss a range of different subjects, events, and hot topics.

Having the means to share your views and feedback, and have your voice heard is very important. Everyone should be able to influence matters that affect them at work and contacting the Employee Forum is just one way to do this.

Open, honest and transparent conversations are essential and all of us should feel able and empowered to share our views.

Volunteer Days

As one team, one family, getting involved is what we do at Bristol Airport. All colleagues are entitled to 1 paid volunteer day per year; you could volunteer for a charity or take part in fundraising.

You also have the option to get involved in our work groups - the CRT and PPP.

Crisis Response Team (CRT)

Fortunately, exceptional events don't happen every day but, when they do, history tells us that the Bristol Airport team come together as one team, one family!

Our Crisis Response Team (CRT) are a group of volunteers from amongst Bristol Airport colleagues who assist during times of disruption so we can respond quickly to the unexpected.

During an exceptional event members of our Crisis Response Team provide help in several ways including:
