Christmas Getaway 2019
Created: 17th Dec 2019
Over 300,000 passengers will be travelling through Bristol Airport during the Christmas period (19 December until 5 January inclusive).
One of the busiest days will fall on Friday 20 December, when approximately 25,000 passengers will fly in and out of the airport, while around 1,000 passengers will be travelling on Christmas Day itself - with over 150 staff working on site across all departments.
The top four destinations over the festive period are Dublin, Amsterdam, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Ski destinations remain a favourite choice for passengers during the winter season, with resorts reporting good skiing conditions. Winter sun destinations including the Canary Islands and Hurghada continue to be popular.
During the busy Christmas holiday period passengers are advised to allow extra journey time to the Airport and to arrive at check-in at least a minimum of 2 hours prior to scheduled departure time. If travelling with presents passengers are asked to keep them unwrapped and check with the airline if wanting to take Christmas crackers away, as many airlines refuse to carry crackers on board the aircraft.
