Bristol Airport (BRS)
(Bristol, Somerset, England, UK)
Located in the West Country, below the Severn Estuary, Bristol International Airport (BRS) is the largest airport in England's south-west. Bristol Airport handles around six million passengers per year and 90,000 aircraft movements, and currently offers flights to over 50 international destinations throughout Europe, as far afield as Africa. The airport is situated just 13 km / 8 miles south of Bristol city centre and directly west of Bath.
Bristol International Airport is served by many major scheduled airlines and also has a large charter airline complement, with flights running to many holiday destinations in Europe, including Crete, Cyprus, Italy and the Balearic and Canary islands. The relatively recent arrival of budget carriers, such as easyJet and Ryanair, have resulted in continued expansion.
Located off the A38 and close to both the M32 and M5 motorways, Bristol International Airport is simple to reach by road from south-west England, being close to the city of Bath, Weston Super Mare and even Cardiff. The Bristol International Flyer buses are particularly popular and link the city centre and its Temple Meads rail station. Also available onsite are National Express coaches, public Badgerline 121 buses and taxis, which are operated by Chequer Cars.
About Bristol Tourism
England's south-westerly city of Bristol offers excellent visitor facilities and a wealth of worthwhile attractions, including extensive shopping and dining opportunities. Bristol is the largest city in the West Country and is best known for being home to genius engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel's awe-inspiring Clifton Suspension Bridge, which hangs seemingly precariously over the beautiful Avon Gorge.
Bristol Airport (BRS) is literally minutes away from the city centre, which is made up of a mixture of medieval, Georgian, Victorian and modern architecture, and is ideal for wandering on foot. The best shopping is located at Bristol's West End, along Whiteladies Road and in the Quarters area, which harbours the city's greatest concentration of cafés, restaurants, pubs and clubs. Close to central Bristol, the stylish Cribbs Causeway shopping mall has enough shops to keep anyone occupied for a whole day.
