The flight route from Edinburgh (EDI) to Bristol (BRS) is a favourite with business travellers and tourists in the United Kingdom. At a distance of 370 miles, travelling by car between the two cities would normally take about 6 hours and 30 minutes. Trains take just under 6 hours on this route. A flight time of 1 hour and 15 minutes duration therefore compares favourably with this much longer journey time. Currently, this route is covered by the low-cost airline, Easyjet, operating between 1 and 4 services daily.
A cheap air ticket from Edinburgh to Bristol will not cost much more than £70 if booked well in advance of travel. Passengers are advised to compare prices online, avoid weekend travel and take hand luggage only to guarantee a low cost flight. Taking hand luggage and taking advantage of the online check in service can also reduce the overall travel time.
The destination airport Bristol International Airport is used by passengers from the West Country. It is located about 8 miles from the city centre and there is a regular bus shuttle service that takes travellers to the train station in Bristol.
