BRISTOL Airport is planning to strengthen its links with Scotland after boosting its passenger numbers.

Almost 630,000 journeys were made from Bristol to Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness last year – an increase of 4.5 per cent on the previous 12 months.

The rise means no airport outside London flies more passengers to Scotland than Bristol does.

Aviation director Shaun Browne said: “While the majority of passengers using Bristol Airport are flying overseas, domestic routes to more distant parts of the UK remain important in keeping the South West connected.

“We expect further growth on these routes in 2013, and are actively exploring ways to strengthen links with Scotland with our airline partners to support these important business and leisure markets.”
