Bristol Airport Information

Bristol Airport first opened in 1930 and was originally known as Bristol (Whitchurch) Airport. In 1957, the airport began organising international flights and was renamed Bristol International Airport. The airport is located 8 miles (13 km) southwest of Bristol city centre.

Bristol Airport has one main terminal building split into two sections—North and South. The North section is used for domestic flights, while the South section is used for international flights. There are also two separate areas for arrivals and departures.

In 2021, Bristol Airport announced an ambitious plan to reach net zero airport operations by 2030.

The airport has a wide range of facilities and services available for passengers, including shops, restaurants, bars, banks, currency exchange outlets, ATMs, a business centre, conference facilities, and Wi-Fi.

You will also find the following shops and eateries before and after security:

Shops at Bristol Airport (After Security)

  • WorldDutyFree: Sells alcohol, chocolates, and everything else you love and know you shouldn’t. Also perfume.
  • WHSmith: You can’t have an airport without a WHSmith. It’s in the Magna Carta. Probably. Pick up some books and magazines, assuming you didn’t already bring them from home, which you almost certainly did.
  • JD Sports: Grab some sporty clothing for your holiday.
  • INMOTION: Sells headphones and other electronics that could be useful for your travels.
  • Superdrug: Pick up meds for headaches, travel sickness, and whatever else ails you.
  • TheBookShop (at WHSmith): A bookshop within a bookshop. It’s bookception. It’s perfect for idle browsing, reading a few synopses, and then remembering you already brought books from home.
  • ACCESSORIZE: A popular fashion location that seems to be at every UK airport these days.

Eateries at Bristol Airport (After Security)

  • Soho Coffee Co: A great little coffee bar with a top menu.
  • Brunel Bar & Kitchen: A classic airport pub, with food and drink.
  • Tortilla: Californian-style Mexican food served in Bristol. What can go wrong?
  • Starbucks: A coffee classic to grab a pick-me-up on the go.
  • Burger King: Don’t have time for a sit-down meal? Grab some fast food instead.
  • Frankie & Benny's: Is it American? Is it Italian? No, it’s neither. But who doesn’t love Frankie & Benny’s?
  • Cabin: Wine, beer, and locally sourced food are all on the menu here.

Shops at Bristol Airport (Before Security)

  • WHSmith: Here it is again. Take it in, as you won’t see another one until you step through security. And then again when you land.
  • M&S Simply Food: It’s not just any Bristol Airport food. It’s M&S Bristol Airport food.

Eateries at Bristol Airport (Before Security)

  • Ritazza: A little shop with a range of cold and hot drinks. It’s a good place to sit down and enjoy a few drinks while meeting friends or preparing for their departure.

Bristol Airport Lounges and Fast Track

Bristol Airport has a Fast Track Security option that costs £6 per person. Booking Fast Track will give you access to a priority security service. You still need to go through the usual checks. You may still face the frustration of spending the morning finding metal-free clothes and removing all of your jewellery, only for a strap zipper to trigger the alarm.

However, if there is a large queue, you can skip it. Unless everyone was thinking the same thing, in which case the queue for Fast Track could also be long.

If you’re looking for a little luxury between flights, book into the Aspire Lounge.

It opens a 4 am every morning and remains open until 8 pm. You will get complimentary food and drinks, as well as access to free WiFi, separate business and family zones, complimentary newspapers and magazines, and more.

It also claims to offer “dedicated toilet facilities”. We assume it means there is a toilet for lounge users only, as opposed to a sentient toilet that really loves its job.
