Bristol Airport is located at Lulsgate Bottom in North Somerset and serves the city of Bristol and surrounding area.

There is only one runway of just 6,598 ft in length with an available landing length of 6,155 ft which means that large aircraft are rarely used. The Airport does not currently operate any jetways, so aircraft have to park on the apron and passengers either walk out to their flights or are carried by bus. Airlines with operating bases at the airport include EasyJet, Ryanair and BMI Regional.

Bristol Airport is the ninth busiest Airport in the UK.

History
Bristol (Whitchurch) Airport was opened in 1930.

During WWII, Bristol (Whitchurch) Airport was the only civilian airport in operation in the UK and all flights inbound to London actually terminated at this airport.

Whitchurch airport continued to be used after the war, but the introduction of heavier post-war airliners meant that a longer runway was needed.This was not possible because of nearby housing estates and a decision was made to develop a new airport at Lulsgate Bottom Airfield. Lulsgate Bottom had been an RAF training base during the war but was later abandoned in April 1946.

The new airport (Bristol Lulsgate Airport) was opened in 1957, and All the Whitchurch airline operations moved here. The runway was lenghtened and extensions made to the terminal in 1965. By 1980 there were seventeen chartered airlines operating from this airport. The airport's name was changed to Bristol International Airport in 1997 and a new terminal built in 1999/2000. In 2010 the airport was rebranded as Bristol Airport. In September 2014, Toronto-based Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan agreed to buy Macquarie's remaining 50% stake in the airport, thereby gaining 100% ownership.
