About Bristol Airport
Bristol airport started life as a flying club in 1927 and later became the birthplace of Concorde. It is now a successful regional airport (one of only two UK airports to grow in 2010, the year of the volcanic ash cloud crisis) and serves Bristol and neighbouring counties. In 2013 6.1 million passengers passed through the airport.
It has one runway and one terminal. Direct flights operate within the UK as well as to Ireland and mainland Europe. Connecting flights expand the scope to Africa, Asia, North America and Dubai in the Middle East.
