Bristol Airport

Bristol Airport, situated at Lulsgate Bottom in North Somerset, primarily serves Bristol, Gloucestershire and Somerset, as well as various destinations worldwide. At the moment, it serves numerous carriers that operate routes to more than 90 locations domestically, regionally and internationally. Despite expanding to accommodate greater numbers of travellers each year, Bristol Airport aims to carry out its operations in an environmentally friendly way, gradually reducing its carbon footprint. The airport prides itself on being a founding member of Sustainable Aviation, and is dedicated to “securing future growth of the airport within environmental limits”.

The airport comprises a main terminal, revamped and officially reopened in March 2000 by HRH the Princess Royal, designed to manage 3.5 million passengers at any one time. The terminal is divided into two storeys, with check-ins and arrivals on ground level, and departures on the first floor. At the ground floor, grab a coffee from Delice de France, make a call using the pay phones, and shop at Flying Visit convenience store to pick up everyday necessities. There are also four car hire companies in the arrivals area at your disposal. On the first floor, an array of retail outlets, restaurants and bars awaits. Browse through a wide catalogue of books and magazines, do last-minute duty free shopping, or relax with some coffee at a coffee house. If you are hungry, head to the mezzanine floor for Food Village, where travellers have a variety of food stalls to choose from.

Travellers looking for entertainment can visit the Games Zone, found in the departure lounge. There is also free wi-fi for a period of 30 minutes, allowing you to surf the world wide web. For longer usage, either extend by purchasing wi-fi packages or use the internet kiosks available.

Take a seat in the business lounges to relax. The lounges, run by Servisair and British Airways, are found on the mezzanine floor, providing passengers with maximum comfort while waiting to board. Refreshments, snacks, television shows and reading materials are also offered to keep travellers occupied. The Servisair Lounge also caters for the needs of businessmen, should they require fax, Internet, e-mail or telephone services urgently. With these facilities, the lounge is undoubtedly the best place to catch up on work or simply unwind before boarding.
