Bristol airport eyes long-haul marketPosted: August 14, 2014
Bristol airport is targeting the lucrative long-haul market with the expansion of its terminal building.
The new development is scheduled for completion by summer 2015 at a cost of £8.6 million.
The airport has recently completed the construction of a new central walkway designed to ease congestion at peak times.
Both of these developments are expected to help the airport in its plans to secure long-haul routes.
Robert Sinclair, chief executive at Bristol Airport, said: “The central walkway sets a new benchmark for passenger facilities at Bristol Airport and the eastern terminal extension will raise the bar higher again.
“This significant investment demonstrates our ambition to become the airport of choice for passengers across the South West and South Wales.
“High quality infrastructure will also make Bristol Airport even more attractive to airlines, helping to extend the choice of destinations available – including long haul services to North America and the Middle East in future.”
