A NEW security system, two restaurants and a retail outlet will be installed at Bristol International Airport.

The additions are all part of a £7.5million project to improve and expand facilities to cope with increasing passenger numbers.

The security search area needs to be extended due to the enhanced security measures introduced by the Department of Transport, which slow the speed of passengers reaching the departure lounge.

Another X-ray machine has also been introduced to ease congestion at the busiest times of day.

Developments will also mean Burger King will be expanded and there will be enough room for a new seafood bar and a table-service restaurant.

Passengers arriving at the airport will not be disrupted by the work over the next 16 weeks, which will see the mezzanine level extended, and a temporary arrivals facility will be in operation.
