Airport bus route celebrates one year anniversary
Created: 14th Jun 2018
The A3 AirportFlyer bus service commenced in 2017 and has recently celebrated its first year anniversary. The route has proved successful for both passengers and staff as the service links the Airport to the villages of Cleeve, Congresbury, Worle and Weston-super-Mare railway station.
Since the service commenced over 40,000 passengers have used the hourly bus service which operates daily Monday to Sunday and Bank Holidays with the exception of Christmas Day. The Airport Flyer runs every hour from 0400 to 2200 daily, stopping off en-route at Worle, Congresbury and Cleeve.
The vehicles are wheelchair accessible and passengers are able to take their luggage on board with them, providing peace of mind and speeding up the boarding process.
Tickets for travel can be booked in advance online, via mTickets or by paying the driver on the day of travel. Tickets will cost £5.00 single or £7.00 return, with concessions available. Further information available from www.bristolairport.co.uk Tickets purchased can subsequently be used on the wider First network within Weston-super-Mare.
Paul Baker, Surface Access Manager, Bristol Airport said:
“This is a major milestone connecting Weston-super-Mare, local villages and the Airport. The Airport is able to provide a public transport hub network needed to support passengers and staff using public transport. We are delighted with the success of the service and look forward to developing the public bus service network further in the future.”
