Bristol Airport recorded its busiest month in June this year, with more than 625,000 passengers travelling through the terminal.
The figure has surpassed the previous record, set in 2008, by 15,000 and represents a 3.4% increase on the same month last year, according to the airport.
The number of passengers using automated ‘ePassport gates’ at the airport also increased by 100% in the 12 months to July 1 compared to the previous corresponding period.
Meanwhile, a new flight from Bristol to Bastia commenced in June, offering holidaymakers in the South West and Wales the chance to visit the Mediterranean island of Corsica.
Corsican Places is offering the service through to September, with a flight time of two-and-a-half hours on a 47-seater aircraft, pre-allocated seating and Sunday departures.
