Passengers venturing off on their holidays from Bristol Airport this morning (May 4) have blasted lengthy ‘two-hour’ queues as a ‘shambles’.
Taking to Twitter to share their experiences, some have complained about “no staff” and “massive queues”. Another described how it took nearly two hours to get from bag drop and through security.
Photos on social media also show people queueing out of the door at the airport.
Just last weekend Bristol Live reported that passengers at Bristol Airport had been left frustrated after an IT issue caused delays to flights on Sunday morning. Huge queues were seen at the airport’s check-in desk just before 2:45am on May 1.
One passenger on Twitter dubbed it “an absolute joke”. The problem was largely resolved by 6am with most airlines’ kiosks made operational and extra staff on hand to help customers. All kiosks were fully operational by 7.40am according to Bristol Airport.
Bristol Live has approached Bristol Airport for comment this morning (Wednesday, May 4).
