Bristol Airport has a noteworthy reputation for its efficiency and has justifiably earned the status equal to Gatwick Airport as joint leader in the UK for accessibility.

Passenger expansion at the airport has been rapid. Current expansion plans however to increase capacity to cater for 10-12 million pax a year is has hit a stumbling block. The reason? According to local media reports, North Somerset Council’s Planning Committee rejected in late February the airport’s submitted works plans.

easyJet already serves West Country’s customers with an expansive Greek network that already includes Athens, Corfu, Heraklion - Crete, Zante - Kefalonia and Rhodes.  And of course, connecting Bristol Airport with neighbouring Cyprus (Larnaca and Paphos).

PS: Travel in the Brexit transition period.
Virtually everything is unchanged regarding passports and formalities for flights to Greek destinations. But if you are planning to bring ciggies back from a trip, double check the permitted allowance. Remember bags get x-rayed out of sight on arrival back in the UK before you collect them.
