Bristol Airport welcomes Glastonbury festivalgoers

Bristol Airport welcomes Glastonbury festivalgoersBristol Airport has revealed it has put simple connections in place for those passengers heading to Glastonbury in Somerset this weekend (June 24th).

People travel from all over the world each year to visit the festival, many of whom fly into the travel hub before making the onwards journey.

Efforts have been stepped up by Bristol Airport to help passengers on their way after a YouGov study found that 11 per cent of individuals would head outside their home country to watch their favourite band in action.

Indeed, around 175,000 individuals are expected to attend the famous festival this year.

Some may decide to take the National Express from Bristol bus station, or the Flyer express bus, which connects Bristol Temple Meads railway station to the airport.

The 2011 festival line-up includes Coldplay, U2, Beyonce, Tinie Tempah, Pendulum and Jessie J, as well as dozens more.

Glastonbury is held at Worthy Farm in Pilton. It kicked off this week and finishes on Sunday, when many people will then pack up their muddy tents and prepare to head back to Bristol Airport and other parts of the UK.
