Bristol Airport update on Security Scanners

With the recent changes to security processes at all UK airports, customers travelling through Bristol Airport should continue to prepare for existing rules on hand luggage.

Customers will need to restrict liquids, gels and pastes to 100ml per item and these will be able to remain with laptops, tablets and mobile phones in their hand luggage, as they pass through security screening. 


Security regulations:

  • Keep all items in hand luggage bag including liquids up to 100ml (max. size)
  • Mobile phones, electrical items and laptops to remain in bag
  • Empty pockets into bag
  • Contents of metal water bottles will need to be emptied


For customers who have booked Fast Track security, from 14 June until 31 July we are upgrading the Fast Track security channels.  Bookings will be unaffected, and the Fast Track Security service will operate through a dedicated lane in the Central Search area.  Customers will easily be able to identify the Fast Track lane through the additional signage and the security team will be on hand to assist.

Customers are reminded to check the hand baggage requirements of their departing airport when returning, as these regulations may differ from the UK.

Bristol Airport is investing over £400m in customer enhancements over the next five years, including a new public transport interchange, additional multi-storey car park, new retail and catering areas and other customer improvements.
