Bristol Airport Spotting held the last and final spotters day at Bristol Airport in the Bristol Room located in the admin building, or more commonly known as the old terminal on Sunday 25th August 2019. The attraction of the event and past events have been the close up views of the action on the runway, taxiways and apron.
The event was open to all aviation enthusiasts over a age restriction purely to make it fair for everyone, and people with a keen interest in aviation, unlike previous aviation fairs this spotters day was simply about watching and photographing the aircraft actions, there were no stalls, exhibits or attractions on the day.
Entry to the event was restricted with ticket only to keep numbers to a suitable amount, entry cost was £2.50 each which raised £64.00 for the airport charity of the year which is Great Western Air Ambulance.
We would like to thank the airport for allowing these events to happen and especially this years spotters day which was organised at the last minute to make use of the room before the building is removed later this year to make way for further aircraft parking stands. Also thank you to all of our supporters and enthusiasts who came along and continue to support BAS.
At the end of the event we took the opportunity to get a group photo in front of the admin building / old terminal for prosperity and something to look back on in the future.
KLM has added 10,000 additional seats between Bristol and Amsterdam this summer, commencing from Monday 24th June. The extra capacity will be provided by upgrading the aircraft operating on the weekday service to a Boeing 737 aircraft, which will provide an additional 32 seats per flight.
KLM currently operates four daily flights to Amsterdam from Bristol and the introduction of the Boeing 737 jet service will increase the overall seat capacity by 6.2% compared to the same period last summer.
The extra capacity will create new opportunities for customers to visit the stunning city of Amsterdam for a short break or take advantage of quick and convenient connections to 162 KLM destinations worldwide, via its award winning hub at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.
Benedicte Duval, General Manager for Air France-KLM in the UK & Ireland said
“Due to strong passenger numbers and positive commercial performance on our Bristol to Amsterdam route, we are pleased to be in a position to increase route capacity for the summer 2019 season.
“The addition of a larger Boeing 737 aircraft will provide almost 10,000 additional seats across the period, giving people in the West of England more opportunity to fly with KLM, and take advantage of our worldwide connections from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.
