Work Commences on £2.3 million Immigration Hall upgrade

Published on : Thursday, January 12, 2017

immigration-hallWork will begin on Monday 16th January on a £2.3 million project to enlarge and enhance the immigration hall at Bristol Airport. On completion in April, it will take the number of passport control points from the current ten to a total of 17, including ten of the latest ePassport gates which provide a safe, secure and speedy alternative to the conventional border control process.

As well as introducing new equipment, the work will enlarge the immigration hall which will be redesigned to create a more welcoming environment and streamline the border process for passengers.

To enable the new technology to be installed, existing equipment has to be removed first. As a result, ePassport gates will be unavailable to passengers for a period of three months until installation is complete. All passengers on international flights will be subject to conventional passport checks during this time.

Alison Roberts, Bristol Airport said:
“These new facilities will be in place for passengers from April onwards, in time for the busy summer holiday season and will make a big difference to the airport experience. In the meantime, we will be working closely with Border Force to keep any inconvenience to passengers during the improvement works to a minimum.”
