Bristol Airport terminal

Airport terminals are the areas or totally separate buildings which make it possible for air travellers to travel between transport on the ground and the facilities for boarding and disembarking from a plane. It's very important to check from which terminal you are departing from or travelling through because travellers may require some more time to get to the right one, especially in larger airports. In Bristol Airport there is 1 Terminal.

Bristol Airport transport to city

It might be difficult to find the most comfortable way to get to the centre of the city when travelling to a destination for the very first time. Public transportation doesn’t always operate immediately at the airport and taxis are often expensive. Our suggestion is to check all transport alternatives before the flight to make sure you choose the best option for your trip.
