Some passengers missed flights due to queues at the airport on Friday morning.
Bristol Airport has apologised after passengers faced “unacceptable” security queues.
Customers described arriving at the airport on Friday morning to find people queueing out of the building, with further “chaos” inside.
Some missed their flights, while others were able to travel only due to airlines taking off later.
In a statement, Bristol Airport said the issue was due to fewer security staff working than expected.
“Far fewer security staff were working than planned. We’re urgently discussing the issue with our security business partner so passengers receive the service levels they rightly expect.
