Bristol International (BRS)

About this airport

In addition to serving as a major base for easyJet and Ryanair, Bristol takes quite a bit of charter air traffic. Once we took both the low-cost and the charter activity into account, we realized that Bristol may be one of our most heavily trafficked airports for budget-oriented flyers. Bristol is also southwest England's biggest airport.


Bristol International Airport is located 13 km (8 miles) south of Bristol city center.
