Runway reopens at Bristol

8th Jan 2007

The runway at Bristol Airport has reopened and flights have now resumed, following tests which centred on a safety row related to claims that aircraft skidded on landing.
According to reports 385 flights and more than 25,000 passengers have been affected since the dispute began on Friday.

The BBC quotes Tony Hallwood, the Aviation Development Director at Bristol International Airport as saying, “We’ve had an army of contractors out on the runway over the last 12 hours putting grooves in to increase friction.”.
