Easter 2017 – Busy Easter getaway at Bristol Airport

Created: 11th Apr 2017

More than 100,000 passengers are expected to use Bristol Airport this Easter weekend (Friday 14 April - Monday 17 April) an increase of over 18% growth on the same period last year.

The recently commenced Ryanair flight to Zadar, as well as the Thomas Cook flights to Malta offering Fly Cruise holidays adds additional choice and options to passengers wishing to get away this summer.  

But it’s not all one way traffic.  Bristol Airport is expecting an influx of visitors from around the UK and overseas as travellers head for the South West to catch up with friends and family or enjoy the region’s attractions.

Passengers are advised to arrive at least two hours ahead of their flight’s scheduled departure to ensure they have time to check in, clear security and board their flight.  Passengers are also advised to check roadworks or travel congestion and plan their journey accordingly over the busy Easter getaway. 

Two, customer improvement projects in are nearing completion.  Two new dedicated Fast Track security channels for departing passengers will be available late-April, and the final stages of the £2.3m Immigration improvements offering an increased number of ePassport gates for passengers will be available before the end of the month, ahead of the busy summer.
