Christmas Getaway 2022

Bristol Airport is anticipating its busiest festive period for two years with up to 350,000 passengers planning to travel through the Airport during the Christmas period (16 December until 3 January inclusive).

One of the busiest days will fall on Monday 26 December, when approximately 20,000 passengers will fly in and out of the airport.

During the lead up to Christmas, Lapland flights have proved popular for families wishing to experience a special family Christmas holiday. A wide range of European and UK destinations continue to provide customers the choice and the opportunity to getaway and visit family and friends over the festive period. The top destinations for customers will include Dublin, Amsterdam and Geneva. Also, Bristol Airport will see its largest ever ski programme this winter with a new series of flights to Toulouse with Crystal Ski and TUI. 

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.
