Rugby World Cup charter flights at Bristol Airport

On Sunday 11th October 2015 Bristol Airport played host to a number of rugby world cup charter flights from various countries around Europe and beyond bringing supporters to the games being held in Cardiff. The spotting areas on Winters Lane and Felton Common saw a record number of spotters from very early in the morning until late, parking space was non existent and many members from BAS were able to meet and be introduced to other members which is one of our core aims of the organisation.

This was a rare day at the airport that normally happens every few years, over the course of the few days the following airlines and aircraft visited Bristol Airport:

  • Air Contractors – Boeing 737
  • Avantiair – Fokker 100
  • Air Dolomiti – Embraer 195
  • Jota Aviation – Bae 146 / RJ
  • Europe Airpost – Boeing 737
