Your airport: your views. A World of Opportunities

Closed 26 Jan 2018

Opened 16 Nov 2017


These are exciting times for our region. The economy is thriving and Bristol Airport is playing its part. We are more connected than ever, with over 120 destinations, and are investing in our facilities to ensure that customers have an amazing journey. 
This year we celebrated our 60th anniversary. The UK Government is progressing its new Aviation Strategy, and a Joint Spatial Plan for the West of England is under development, providing an ambitious foundation for sustainable growth. So now is the right time for us to consider the next chapter in Bristol Airport’s story, up to and beyond our centenary year.
We want to share our exciting vision for the future, ensuring the airport is a gateway to the South West of England and South Wales, by building on our strong local identity.
A questionnaire is available at the bottom of this page, and will be available in hard copy at each of our exhibitions, details of which are below.
Our document 'Your Airport: your views', referred to during the questionnaire, is also available at the bottom of this page, and hard copies will be available to take away at the exhibitions.


Why We Are Consulting

Having a successful international airport is vital for a vibrant region like ours, with world-class universities, major multi-national businesses and some of Britain’s most iconic tourist attractions on our doorstep.

We are now preparing our own strategic plan for the coming decades, and this consultation represents the first step.

After listening to you we will prepare a Draft Master Plan for further consultation in spring 2018. We aim to publish the final Master Plan in the winter of 2018/19.

This is your chance to tell us what you think the priorities for your airport should be. Our consultation will run until 26 January 2018, with the following exhibitions being held across our region.

What Happens Next

This consultation is now closed. All feedback is being read and analysed.
We will publish a report summarising the feedback and explaining how we are taking it into account.
Your views, together with further analysis and study, will result in a decision on the appropriate level of development required to meet our strategic objectives and the creation of a draft Master Plan, which will be subject to full public consultation in 2018.
In the meantime, we will keep local communities, North Somerset Council and other partners and stakeholders fully informed as we consider how best to deal with rising passenger demand up to and possibly beyond the current permitted levels. Any proposal required to ensure a smooth transition towards a successful future would be subject to full consultation and engagement.
