Update from Bristol Airport Police Summer 2015

On the positive side Bristol Airport continues to expand with more passengers, more airlines and more routes. As you will all know from the news the international security situation is still worrying but we are still concentrating on keeping the airport safe for staff, passengers and visitors.

We are already planning for the Rugby World Cup matches in Cardiff this autumn and I will soon be having my first meetings in relation to Euro 2016. As I type this, Wales has not yet qualified. I am assuming that they will get though and I know that the airport would welcome any Welsh fans who need to get to France next year.

Please can I ask the spotters to continue to be vigilant? Security at the airport is a team effort and the police cannot do it alone. Your support is much appreciated.

Finally, we hope to meet as many of you as possible on Sunday 20th for the Aviation Fair. Please come along and meet the team.
