Bristol Airport has 1 terminal where all arrivals and departures are handled. The check-in counters are on the ground floor. Then you will go to the first floor for the security check. From there you can go to the relevant gates for the Bristol Airport departures. All departures go through the only 2 km (6,600 ft) runway there is. There has been talk of enlarging the terminal, car park and taxiways to create greater capacity. However, this entire plan was canceled because BAAN voted against the plan. Without expansion, the airport has already seen growth in passenger numbers for 10 years. Aircraft movements, however, decreased in the last few years. This means better utilization of the aircraft. There were 69,434 Bristol Airport Departures in 2019. Most departures went to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport followed closely by Dublin. Edinburgh, located in Scotland, is also doing well in third place. After that come the Spanish holiday destinations of Malaga, Alicante and Palma de Mallorca. Flying to these Spanish cities mainly happens with Ryanair, Alicante and Easyjet. For the top 3 cities this is also KLM and Aer Lingus.
