Bristol Airport Information
Bristol International Airport is one of the fastest growing airports in the UK, with a year on year passenger increase. The Airport was awarded the 'Investors in People's standard' for the Airport's commitment to staff training and development in November 2002.
A new covered walkway at Bristol Airport provides weatherproof cover to six aircraft stands, opened to the public in December 2002. There are also now regular flights to New York from Bristol Airport.

WH Smiths, Games Zone, Viva coffee shop, Bakers Dolphin, Dorothy Perkins, Shopping - Duty & Tax free store, La Brioche Doree, Brunel Bar, Burger King and The Food Village. The terminal also offers a business express channel.
Bristol Airport Security Arrangements/Check-in
15,000 banned items are being confiscated every day from passengers, at Heathrow, Stansted and Gatwick airports alone. The whole system has slowed down because people are still carrying sharp objects in their hand luggage. In the UK an extra £30m of additional investment has been ploughed into airport security and improving surveillance at the major airports. Tighter security measures at UK Airports means that checking in for your flight at Bristol airport can take longer.
Baggage Allowances/Luggage Restrictions
The majority of airlines base their allowances on recommendations from the International Air Transport Association (IATA). If your hold baggage is heavier than the allowance, the airline is entitled to charge an excess baggage charge. If your cabin luggage is overweight or too big, you might be asked to check it in to the hold. If doing so takes your hold luggage above your hold baggage allowance, you might have to pay excess baggage charges.
