Parking Types

We know airport parking inside out. When you make your airport parking booking through APH, you can be assured you are booking with the experts. With over 40 years’ experience, let us explain the different types of parking at Bristol Airport.

On-Airport Parking at Bristol

An on-airport car park is one situated within the airport perimeter. This means it is close to the terminal and within the security of the airport grounds.

Some on-airport parking in Bristol is within walking distance of the airport terminal. In this case, you just park your car, unload your baggage, and walk across to check-in. Other on-airport Bristol car parking requires a short shuttle bus transfer, which is free of charge and takes less than five minutes. In this case, you park your car, head to Reception (if required) and hop onto the shuttle bus, which will take you to the terminal doors.

Our on-airport car parks:

Off Airport Parking at Bristol Airport

Off-airport car parks are located outside the airport perimeter. Currently, all our parking in Bristol is on-airport.

Official Parking at Bristol Airport

Operated by the airport, all the official parking in Bristol Airport is situated within the airport perimeter. These are the on-airport car parks. Some are within walking distance of the terminal and others required a short shuttle bus transfer.

Meet and Greet Parking at Bristol Airport

Meet & Greet parking is a valet service. Quick and convenient, you drive straight to the terminal, where you park up in an express bay in front of the terminal building. While you walk to check-in, your car will be parked for you in a secure parking facility. When you return from your trip, your vehicle will be brought back to the terminal for you to collect.

Meet & Greet parking is great for those short of time, travelling with young children, or with bulky luggage. Book your Meet & Greet parking in Bristol with APH to be sure you are booking with an approved Meet & Greet operator.

History of Bristol Airport

Built on the site of a former RAF airfield, Bristol Airport was originally known as Bristol (Lulsgate) and was opened by the Duchess of Kent in 1957.

Bristol’s first airport, however, was built at Whitchurch in 1929. On its opening in 1930, it became only the third civilian airport in the UK. Even earlier, a flying club had started up in 1927 at Filton Aerodrome, which was later to be the birthplace of Concorde. It was the popularity of the flying club that prompted the construction of the airport at Whitchurch. However, after the second world war, the lack of development potential at Whitchurch meant another site had to be found if Bristol was going to have a modern city airport, and an arrangement was made for Bristol Corporation to buy Lulsgate Bottom Airfield, which had been abandoned by the RAF in 1946.

The first year of operations at Bristol (Lulsgate) saw 33,000 passengers pass through its terminal, which was extended in 1965. By 1988, with a new international departure lounge and multiple tour operators running charter flights for holiday packages, passenger numbers had reached 100,000.

In 1997, the airport was rebranded as Bristol International and in 2000, a new terminal building was opened by HRH Princess Royal. In the same year, passenger numbers passed the two million mark. In 2001, low-cost carrier Go made Bristol its second base and in 2005, Continental Airlines launched the first-ever transatlantic flights from England’s South West.

Further development of new aircraft stands and new east and west terminal extensions followed, and when Bristol celebrated its 60th birthday in 2017, it was handling over eight million passengers a year.


Bristol Airport operates as a single terminal airport. On the ground floor of the terminal, you’ll find the check-in area. The domestic and international arrivals halls are also on the ground floor.

For security and the departures lounge, you go up to the first floor, where there are shops, restaurants and seating areas.

If you are travelling to the airport by car, it is a good idea to book your airport parking in advance.

  • Aegean Airlines
  • Aer Lingus

Some countries require passport validity to be a minimum of six months, but all countries have different requirements. You can refer to the government’s as well as advice from your airline.

The recommended check-in time at Bristol Airport is at least two hours prior to departure. If you are travelling with Ryanair, you must check in online. Other airlines also offer online check-in.

If you have already checked in online, have no checked-in luggage, and have your boarding pass printed out, when you arrive at the airport you can head straight for security and the departures lounge.

If you have luggage to go in the hold then you need to drop it off before going through security. EasyJet, Jet2, Ryanair and TUI all have their own self-service bag drop kiosks.

If your flight departs early in the morning and you are flying with Jet2, EasyJet or TUI, you can drop your bags off at the airport the night before. Just ask them about “twilight bag drop.”

There are certain items that you are not permitted to carry in your hand luggage. You can check hand luggage restrictions at home before you pack.
