Bristol Airport (IATA: BRS, ICAO: EGGD), located at Lulsgate Bottom in North Somerset, is the commercial airport serving the city of Bristol, England, and the surrounding area.

Bristol Airport is 7 nautical miles (13 km; 8.1 mi) southwest of Bristol city centre. Built on the site of a former RAF airfield, it opened in 1957 as Bristol (Lulsgate) Airport, replacing Bristol (Whitchurch) Airport as Bristol’s municipal airport. From 1997 to 2010 it was known as Bristol International Airport. In 1997 a majority shareholding in the airport was sold to FirstGroup, and then in 2001 the airport was sold to a joint venture of Macquarie Group and others.

In 2008, the Bristol Airport drew 47.7% of its passengers from the former county of Avon area, 11.7% from Somerset and 8.8% from Devon. In 2012, it was the ninth busiest airport in the United Kingdom, handling over 5.9 million passengers, a 2.3% increase compared with 2011. Airlines with operating bases at the airport include EasyJet, Ryanair and BMI Regional.
