The Bristol Airport terminal extension should be completed well in advance of the school holidays, probably for the first week in July.
The £8.6m project – the first major expansion of the terminal building since it opened in 2000 – is a major component of development plans to enhance facilities to handle 10m passengers per annum.
As well as creating space for hundreds of additional seats in the departure lounge, the extension provides more than 1,000sq m for retail and catering units which will be occupied by a range of new and existing brands.
New to Bristol Airport are the leading fashion sports retailer, JD Sports, and popular fashion outlet, Accessorize, while the Traveller store will bring a range of major brands and the latest fashion under one roof, selected to capture the excitement and exhilaration of travelling, including Superdry, Gant, Barbour, Boss Green and Joules. Claire’s Accessories returns after a brief hiatus during the construction period, and Superdrug, WHSmith and The Bookshop at WH Smith will move to new, improved units in the enlarged departure lounge, completing an exciting refresh of the shopping experience.
Outdoor space can also be accessed by those not dining, with a rooftop garden featuring quirky sculptures expected to prove popular, particularly during the summer months. www.bristolairport.co.uk

All very nice but when are they going to reduce the cost of parking which at the moment is the highest in UK?
