Bristol Airport prepares for a busy Bank Holiday
Created: 24th Aug 2016
More than 110,000 passengers are expected to use Bristol Airport over the Bank Holiday weekend (Friday 26 August – Monday 29 August inclusive).
With the summer season already on track to surpass previous passenger levels, airlines and tour operators are reporting strong bookings for what is traditionally one of the busiest weekends of the year for air travel.
However, it is not all one way traffic. Bristol Airport is expecting an influx of visitors from around the UK and overseas as travellers fly in to meet friends and family to enjoy the holiday weekend together or to visit the region’s attractions.
Arriving passengers can help keep time spent at border control to a minimum by having passports open to the photograph page and removing hats and sunglasses in advance of inspection, with families encouraged to go through the border together.
