Almost 200,000 people are expected to use Bristol Airport over the Christmas holidays.
Passenger numbers from Friday through to New Year’s Day are expected to increase by five per cent from last year.
With more than 190,000 expected to pass through the terminal, airport staff are pleading with people to arrive early to ensure flights take off on time.
An airport spokesman said: “This passenger number has been boosted by airlines adding additional flights to their schedule over the Christmas period to meet demand.
“Ski destinations remain a popular choice for passengers during the winter season, with resorts reporting excellent skiing conditions. Winter sun destinations such as the Canary Islands and Rome continue to be popular.
“For the first time Stockholm, Cologne and Athens being added to the network for the Christmas period further extends choice further.”
