History:

1927
Bristol International Airport A group of local businessmen managed to raise 6,000 through public subscriptions to inaugurate a flying club at Filton Aerodrome, which became the birthplace of Concorde.

1930
Official opening of Bristol Airport in May by HRH Prince George. During this period Bristol was only the third civil airport in the country.

1939 - 1944
Many discussions take place on the fate of Whitchuch following the war. The general view is that it cannot be developed for post war use and that its future is limited.

1968
A new 5,000 square foot transit shed was constructed and many freight agents were beginning to establish their operations at the airport.

Bristol International Airport 1973
Saw the collapse of Court Line, which had a dramatic effect on air passenger numbers at all UK airports, not just Bristol.

1991
Brymon Airways continue to dominate the expansion programme with the introduction of an additional service to Edinburgh, introduction of a Newcastle / Aberdeen route and a third Dash 8 aircraft. In addition to Brymon's success Sabena began operating to Brussels and Crossair to Zurich. Freight traffic also increased with scheduled services booming and the Post Office illustrated its commitment by opening up a new sorting office at the airport. Despite a poor year in respect of charter services the final passenger throughput was satisfactory.

2003
Passenger numbers jumped in 2003 to a massive 3.8million. 2003 was also a busy year in terms of new route announcements. Easyjet announced a 6th based unit in October and a range of new routes including Newcastle, Amsterdam, Bilbao, Berlin (starting June 204) and Copenhagen, Bristol Internationals first ever direct flight to Scandinavia. In addition, Bristol International welcomed Air South West, with services to Manchester and Plymouth (starting in 2004), Flybe with an increased range of services including new routes to Toulouse, Bordeaux and Bergerac and finally Isles of Scilly Skybus started services to Newquay.
In the Airports Terminal, wireless internet access was launched; WH Smiths and Travelex were extended. The Airport launched an aggressive car park pricing policy, with 8 days parking onsite costing just 33.75 and 15 days parking for just 49. The Airport announced its intention to secure a daily direct schedule service to the USA starting in 2005.
Finally, the Governments White paper on the future of aviation, secured Bristol International status as the Airport for the South West. It estimates that the Airport could expect to handle some 12m passengers by 2030, requiring a longer runway and a terminal extension.
