seeks to attract more Bristol Airport travellers into Burnham
MP is to hold talks with Bristol Airport to try and encourage
more travellers to visit the Burnham area.
Heappey wants to see more done by the airlines and airport to
encourage visitors to stay in Somerset rather than Bristol.
told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Bristol Airport is one of the fastest
growing regional airports in the country - there are new routes
opening up all the time. There are also some really great airlines
that are looking to come into Bristol, with long and short haul
problem at the moment is that Bristol Airport delivers people
almost exclusively into Bristol, so I have been speaking to the
airport and the county council and all the other MPs in Somerset
to work out how we can make Bristol Airport serve Somerset better."
is really important because we have a big visitor economy here
with great attractions and accommodation and we want people to
see the airport as a gateway to Somerset and come here for their
holiday, not to be based in Bristol and to just visit us for day
