Bristol Airport

The independent Planning Inspectorate has today [2nd Feb 2022] announced it will allow Bristol Airport’s expanded capacity to proceed

This will lift the cap on Bristol Airport’s capacity from 10 million passengers a year to 12 million and enables investment – including new upgrades to the terminal building, parking facilities, and public transport links.

Expanded capacity will add 800 jobs at Bristol Airport and up to a further 5,000 regionally. The Airport has an existing plan in place to ensure that local residents are offered future job opportunities and a fund will be created to help support those facing barriers to employment, transitioning people in low paid work into careers at Bristol Airport, with up to £300,000 being made available to kick-start training, work experience, apprenticeships, and job readiness.
