Bristol Airport announces plans for substantial improvement in public transport & customer experience
Bristol Airport has announced plans to bring forward the construction of a new multi-million-pound Public Transport Interchange (PTI) facility.

- A dedicated building which will encompass a passenger concourse
- New pedestrian routes and vehicle access
- Additional capacity for public transport vehicles
- A new taxi rank and taxi service reception
- Electric charging units
- Food and beverage offerings
- Toilet facilities
Dave Lees, CEO, Bristol Airport said:
“The proposed new Public Transport Interchange will enhance the accessibility of the airport for passengers and staff using public transport. Sustainability and greener growth is at the heart of Bristol Airport’s plans and this development supports our ambitions to become carbon neutral for direct emissions by 2025 and a net zero airport by 2050. The PTI will deliver a substantial improvement in the public transport offering at the airport.”
