Bristol Airport information

Bristol Airport Parking logos

Like many airports, Bristol Airport is built on the site of a former RAF base, opening in 1957 as Bristol (Lulsgate) Airport, replacing Bristol (Whitchurch) Airport as the city's airport. Now known simply as Bristol Airport, it is owned exclusively by Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan.

In 2016 it was the 9th busiest airport in the UK, with over 7.6 million passengers passing through. A popular airport for travellers from Wales, Somerset and Devon.

Located just eight miles south of the city centre, it has good transport links and is easily accessible from anywhere in the South West.

How to Get to Bristol Airport

Bristol Airport is located on the A38 and is signposted from the M5 motorway, from junction 22 when approaching from the south and junction 18 when approaching from the north.

For those using a sat nav the postcode for Bristol airport is BS48 3DY

There are a few options both on and off the airport, including some in walking distance. For maximum convenience, there are Meet and Greet services.

Within the perimeter of Bristol airport and run by the airport there are several car parks, from the Long-stay car park to the Premier car park. These car parks are self-park with number plate recognition and you can keep your car keys.

Long Stay Parking at Bristol Airport

The official Long Stay car park, situated opposite the airport terminal and is an approximate 3-4-minute stroll away, or there is a bus transfer available should you prefer it.

Short Stay Parking at Bristol Airport

For those in a hurry, the Premier car park is very close just a 150 metre walk to the terminal, ideal for the business passenger.

Off-Airport Parking near Bristol Airport

The cheapest option is the Silver Zone car park which is also run by the airport. It is a little further away, and the free bus take 4-5 minutes to get to the terminal. These transfers run 24 hours, so no need to worry about delayed flights. You will need to leave your car keys at this car park.

Meet and Greet at Bristol Airport

The airport also provides a Meet and Greet service right outside the terminal for maximum convenience. Super for larger parties with children, those with large items of luggage like skis etc. and for anyone with mobility problems as drop off is just 50 meters from the terminal in the Express Drop off car park.

Hotels with parking at Bristol Airport

The Hampton by Hilton Bristol Airport is a new hotel just 250 metres from the airport via a direct walkway. You can’t stay closer.

Among the hotels a little further away is the comfortable Winford Manor just off the A38, set in 7 acres of grounds but just 5 minutes transfer time from the airport.

Bristol Airport Departure Lounge

You will find all the usual airport facilities here. The eateries include Dexters Restaurant and Soho Coffee co. where you can relax whilst you wait for your flight.

You can drop into the World duty free for a little retail therapy before your flight, or in one of the other outlets including JD Sports and Dixons as well WH Smith where there's still time to pick up your holiday reading.

Within the terminal there is up to 60 minutes free WiFi, and other services to be found are a bureau de change, cash dispensers, toilets and baby changing rooms.

Bristol Airport Lounge

By booking an executive lounge you can get away from the hustle and bustle enjoying complementary refreshments and a peaceful start to your journey no matter which airline you are flying with.

Bristol Airport has two lounges, the Aspire Lounge open to both adults and families located next to Dexters Restaurant in the Departure Lounge. Here they serve complimentary wines, beers, spirits as well as soft drinks, teas and coffees. There are also hot snacks like bacon rolls at breakfast time or soup and roll later in the day, as well as treats such as crisps, nuts, cakes, biscuits or English cream tea.

Then there is the Aspire Lounge plus, a little more expensive, but is exclusively for adults with drinks and snack as above but with some upgraded food options and drinks including Prosecco and exclusive single malt Spey whiskey.

Long Stay Car Park

So few flights you can now park in the long stay car park in front of the terminal. Makes matters a lot easier. Issue with this airport is that it is the only one I can think of where you have to pay to hire a trolley so you have a choice, pay £2 for the privilege (which sticks in my craw), pull your case over fairly rough tarmac for 500 yds or wait for the shuttle bus. Still easier than waiting for 'off-airport' services which are at present, no cheaper!

Silver Zone Car Park

Not advised beforehand that Silver Zone was closed although the website claimed it was open. Directed to Long Stay car park and walked to terminal rather than the bus service from Silver Zone. Not too much of a problem as no time lost waiting for the bus. Would not have been happy had it been raining.

Silver Zone Car Park

On arrival at Silverzone car parking on Sunday 20th Sept we found the car park closed due to Covid and a sign directing us to use the long stay car park. It would have been good to have been contacted prior to our arrival to let us know what was happening. No issues with using long stay but was a long way to walk with no buses operating. Good job we are not elderly.

Silver Zone Car Park

I booked the off site Silverzone car park but when I arrived there it was closed and was now being used as a Covid testing centre - I WAS NOT INFORMED OF THIS.... I was redirected to the Longstay car park at Bristol Airport. I had trouble finding a parking space then had to walk 10 mins to the terminal at which point it started to rain and there were no buses in sight - I did not pay for this service and was extremely disappointed.

Silver Zone Car Park

Silver Carpark was closed as it is a COVID testing point which is fine if only this was clearly marked and or Information communicated at the time of booking. We were put in the long stay car park which was actually closer but only found this out after going to the silver zone first. Otherwise booking was easy, price was great just need better relaying of information to customers.

It is not possible to rate as our flight was cancelled and therefore could not go. We cannot get a refund and have lost the money. I will not book parking until last minute next time. It would be nice for a reminder a few days before to give chance to cancel.
