Passengers at Bristol Airport will take part in a trial initiative aimed at speeding up the check-in process, it has been reported.
Launched on July 22nd, the new Fly Thru service allows travellers flying after August 5th the opportunity to use express security queues and go directly to the airport’s security search area for a fee of £5.
Bristol Airport decided to implement the scheme after research revealed that 60 per cent of business flyers would use a service designed to speed up the security process.
Alison Roberts, general manager of terminal operations at Bristol International Airport, said: "Our customers told us that they wanted more time to relax in the departure lounge, and less time spent in queues. We’ve listened, and introduced improvements which have significantly reduced queues to the security search area."
Bristol Airport passengers will be able to buy the service on the company’s website as well as at kiosks in the airport on the day of travel.
"By offering choice we hope we can provide an airport experience to suit the needs of all passengers," added Ms Roberts.
The Fly Thru service is part of a £7.5 million project aimed at improving airport facilities at Bristol Airport.
