Bristol Airport expansion

BRISTOL AIRPORT has won clearance to almost double the number of annual passengers it handles.  The expansion plans are to be focused around the existing site and not involve an additional runway or terminal, allowing the airport to expand passenger numbers from six to ten million by 2019-20.  Whilst it will lose its Continental Airlines' services to New York’s Newark airport at the end of the summer season the new approval will allow the airport’s marketing team to spread its wings in trying to attract new carriers, particularly long haul, and with regard to expansion by existing tenants.  The development summary does not include provision for any major road improvements, the former Lulsgate Airport sitting adjacent to the A38 single carriageway and not linked to the M5.  Local road upgrading will help with access.
