Planning for the future

We need to plan ahead to ensure we can continue to meet demand for air travel to and from the region we serve.

A conversation about the airport’s future began in late 2017 when the public and stakeholders were invited to help shape a new Master Plan looking out towards 2050. Following further consultation in spring 2018 work continues on a Draft Master Plan which will be published in 2019.

In the meantime, a practical first step towards long-term sustainable growth is set out in the planning application submitted to North Somerset Council on 30 November 2018. This seeks approval for development to handle up to 12 million passengers a year by the mid-2020s.

Our carbon roadmap sets out how we will achieve our ambition to be a net zero airport, including becoming carbon neutral for our direct emissions by 2025.
