Bristol airport starts £2.3m renovation project

Bristol airport has started work on its £2.3 million renovation project, which includes improvements to the immigration hall and new hotel.

The 201-room Hampton by Hilton Bristol Airport will be the first on-site hotel at the airport, located on North Side Road within a couple of minutes’ walking distance of the terminal building.

Facilities will include free wifi and hot breakfast for all guests, fitness and business centres, and a boardroom-style meeting space accommodating up to 20 people.

The hotel is currently accepting reservations for arrivals from March 1.

The new immigration hall will see the number of passport control points increase from 10 to 17, including 10 of the latest ePassport gates.

Alison Roberts, head of customer operations, Bristol Airport, said:  “These new facilities will be in place for passengers from April onwards, in time for the busy summer holiday season and will make a big difference to the airport experience.  

“In the meantime, we will be working closely with Border Force to keep any inconvenience to passengers during the improvement works to a minimum.”
