BRISTOL Airport has announced that there will be a new bus stop at Worle Train Station.

The new stop for the A3 Weston Flyer will make travelling to the airport faster and more convenient for everyone.

The introduction of the service is a result of collaboration between Bristol Airport, GWR, North Somerset Council and First Bus.

For those that use the A3 Weston Flyer, the service will continue to run 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The new service will simply be integrated into the existing timetable.

The First Bus website reads: "With buses running from 3am to 11pm from Weston-super-Mare and from 4am to midnight from Bristol Airport, the Airport Flyer service is the easiest way to travel to the airport.

"We run 364 days a year; no service operates on Christmas Day.   

"Our contactless card or device Tap On, Tap Off system can be used on service A3 and will cover Single and Day Returns for the usual prices.

"It will also automatically cap at the relevant prices if you make connecting journeys on other First Bus services.

"Period returns (valid for one month) are not currently compatible with Tap On, Tap Off so please ensure to ask the driver if you would like one of these tickets."

Since Worle Station sits on the National Cycle Network 33, this could further help to improve travel options for holidaymakers.

In 2022, the A3 Weston Flyer service extended its hours to accommodate customers and employees of the airport, and also links the airport to Weston-Super-Mare railway station via Cleeve, Congresbury, Worle interchange and now Worle Train Station.

To travel for free, airport colleagues can show their Bristol Airport ID badge when hopping on the A3 Weston Flyer bus.

It is thought that this could help cut down emissions and help workers save money.

Ed Condon, transport development manager, said: “We continue to look for opportunities to improve public transport services to and from Bristol Airport.

"The new stop for the A3 Weston Flyer at Worle Train Station will not only provide a faster, cheaper and more convenient transport option for customers from the South West; but will also help open up the region’s tourism to our inbound passengers.

"We are committed to increasing new public transport alternatives for customers throughout the South West and Wales.”
