Bristol ‘gaining 10,000 passengers a week’

Bristol 'gaining 10,000 passengers a week'Over 10,000 passengers a week are using Bristol Airport to travel worldwide, it has been reported.

Flights to international destinations have increased in number and regularity meaning an increasing number of passengers has been able to fly from Bristol to locations such as Amsterdam, Paris, and New York.

Shaun Browne, head of commercial aviation and route development, said: "The fact that 10,000 passengers a week are travelling between Bristol International and major international hubs proves the concept of using feeder flights to connect to onward destinations."

With the success of daily flights to Amsterdam-Schiphol, Frankfurt and Paris Charles de Gaulle already established, Bristol Airport is keen to expand its routes in order to attract more passengers.

"We are also evaluating the potential of other hub routes such as Copenhagen and Munich to serve the south-west," added Mr Browne.

Bristol has ample airport parking facilities so it will be able to cope with the increased demand of passengers looking to fly to the new destinations.

The airport recently announced new services including a reception and ‘ambulift’ that will provide assistance to passengers with reduced mobility.
