“This was caused due to flight disruption across the flight schedule earlier in the day.
“As a result of the knock-on effect with the delayed flights arriving off scheduled, airline ground handling resources were stretched at times, meaning some passengers experienced baggage delays.
“Bristol Airport apologises and appreciates the frustration passengers experienced due to the delay in the arrival of their bags. An internal investigation with the airline handling agent will be completed.”
