People can fly to new destinations from North Somerset thanks to British Airways returning to the district’s airport.

It had been 10 years since a British Airways plane had been seen taking off from Bristol Airport, but the airline has now returned.

It is offering flights to Spanish sunspots Malaga, Palma and Ibiza, as well as Florence in Italy.

Flights start from £45 each way and there will be 17,000 seats available to the destinations from Bristol this summer.

British Airways’ general manager commercial and customer Luke Hayhoe said the company is ‘excited’ to have returned to Bristol, and added: “Florence is a brand new city to be served from Bristol Airport and is proving to be very popular with customers alongside our flights to three of the most sought-after Spanish destinations.”
