Christmas Getaway 2023

Bristol Airport is anticipating its busiest ever festive period with up to 390,000 passengers planning to travel through the Airport during the Christmas period (16 December until 2 January inclusive).

One of the busiest days will fall on Friday 22 December, when approximately 26,000 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 with the choice and the opportunity to getaway and visit family and friends over the festive period. The top destinations for customers will include Dublin, Edinburgh, Amsterdam, Geneva and Tenerife.

During the busy Christmas holiday period, passengers are advised 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.
