Bristol has a notable International Airport, which is situated just 8 miles away of Bristol city centre. The airport offers scheduled flights from Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels, Copenhagen, Edinburgh, Frankfurt, Glasgow, Paris and Prague. Surprisingly though, it does not have any flights from London.

Briton has a coastline on the estuary of the River Severn, which flows into the Bristol Channel. Historically, all the economic activates of the city were surrounded by the port. But recently, the aerospace industry started contributing a lot. Several years ago, all the old city centre docks were regenerated as a centre of heritage and culture. Information technology, financial service sectors and tourism are also contributing to its growth. In 2004 Bristol's GDP reached £9.439 bn, and the combined GDP of Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and North Somerset hit £44.098 bn.
