New Multi-Faith Quiet Area opens at Bristol Airport
Created: 25th Jan 2019
Bristol Airport has opened a new Multi-Faith Quiet Area in the Departure Lounge. Situated between the Central Walkway and Gates 32-34 on the first floor. The area provides passengers the choice of a quiet and reflective space located away from the main noise and activities of a busy airport. Signage has been installed in the departure lounge to direct customers to the area.
This Multi-Faith area is intended for those passengers wishing to have a quiet area for prayer and meditation and includes a compass indicating the direction of Mecca, as well as seating and soft furnishings.
Phil Holder, Head of Operational Support, Bristol Airport said:
“We are delighted by this latest enhancement to the passenger facilities at Bristol Airport. We listened to feedback from travelling passengers and we often receive requests for a quiet area which is particularly challenging to provide the space in a noisy environment of a busy terminal building. The development and customer service team visited other airports and public locations to look at the most suitable design and space for passengers.”
