Other more stressful ways to get to Bristol Airport include:
Rail transport to Bristol Airport
Bristol Temple Meads is the nearest train station to Bristol Airport located approximately 7 miles away. This means is you choose to travel by train to the airport you will have to account for the train journey as well as an extra transfer from the station to the airport via bus. The Bristol Airport Flyer Express bus service connects the station and the airport and runs on average 5 times an hour during peak hours.
Coach transport to Bristol Airport
Local buses operate to Bristol Airport from Bristol city centre as well as from Weston-Super-Mare. These local buses call at a number of stops on route so are not ideal for an efficient journey to the airport. Coach services operated by National Express run to Bristol bus station where you will have to connect to the Bristol Airport Flyer Express service to get to the airport. Getting to Bristol Airport by coach is therefore not the smoothest form of transport, especially for customers with heavy luggage, small children or reduced mobility.
Taxi transport to Bristol Airport
Taxis to and from Bristol Airport can be pre-booked with the dedicated taxi service Checker Cars. Alternatively, Airparks offers both a nearby on-airport parking car park as well as efficient meet and greet service for customers looking to maximise the efficiency of their journey as well as benefit from transporting their luggage in their own car and working to their own timescale.
