IFATC at home - Bristol
Hey everyone! I hope you are all doing well right now! As you may already know, IFATC at home is back, so I will open the nearest commercial airport to me, Bristol!
About Bristol Airport
Bristol Airport is the airport which serves the city of Bristol, England! This airport was a former RAF field, and it opened to commercial services back in 1957 as Luslgate Airport. Now, the airport is called Bristol Airport. Bristol Airport. Airlines like EasyJet and Ryanair have bases there. The single terminal there can accommodate up to 8.7 million passengers a year, and it has 16 gates. There is a plan to expand the current terminal so it can accommodate up to 10 million passengers a year and can support up to 16 gatesnot all are jetbridges.

Indeed, Bristol Airport definitely has a short runway! Expect runway 27 to be mainly used, as the wind conditions favour that runway. In some circumstances, runway 09 may be used due to the wind. Expect pattern work to be allowed, unless if the visibility is lacking.

As you may already know, Bristol has a short runway, so I cannot allow aircraft larger than an Airbus A330 and a Boeing 787 to be allowed. The Boeing 767 family is allowed.
Due to some important work, I will close at 2020-06-21T12:30:00Z and reopen at 2020-06-21T21:30:00Z
If there are any disruptions and the timings will need to be rescheduled, I will update this thread as soon as possible.
