The bus service which connects Weston-super-Mare to Bristol Airport has celebrated its first year anniversary.

The A3 flyer service has proved successful for passengers and staff as the service links the airport to the villages of Cleeve and Congresbury as well as Worle and Weston train station.

Since the service launched more than 40,000 passengers have used the hourly route which operates daily from 4am to 10pm from Monday to Sunday.

The vehicles are wheelchair-accessible and people are able to take their luggage on-board with them.

Paul Baker, surface access manager for the airport, said: “This is a major milestone in connecting villages to the airport.

“The airport is able to provide a public transport hub network needed to support both passengers and staff.

“We are delighted with the success of the service and look forward to developing it further in the future.”
