Bristol Airport, before 2010 called Bristol International Airport, is the main airport serving Bristol, and is with over 7 million passengers the ninth-busiest airport in the UK. Bristol Airport is a major hub for several airlines: easyJet, Ryanair, Thomas Cook and BMI Regional all have aircraft based here.
The airport has one runway and one terminal. It does not have jet-ways, so all passengers have to walk on the apron to their aircraft or be carried by bus.
The airport is located just 15 km southwest of Bristol city center.
The Airport Flyer Express bus service is the best way to get into the city. Line A1 departs for the central station and then stops at several places in the city before returning again to the airport. It operates day and night, 24/7 and leaves very frequent: in peak times every 10 minutes, at night once an hour. A one-way ticket costs 8 pounds, but a return ticket only 11 pounds. The trip into the city takes an half hour.
The popular tourist destination Bath is also reachable by bus: The Air Decker departs every hour, takes an hour and a one-way ticket costs 14 pounds.
