Bristol Airport welcomes Iberia and Ryanair for rugby charter flights

Last weekend Bristol Airport welcomed Bristol bears and La Rochelle rugby teams.

Bristol bears travelled to the airport on Saturday, which they were flying on a Ryanair Boeing 737-8AS (EI-DPY) .The team flew to Bordeaux ahead of the game the next day against Bordeaux Begles. The score was 36-17 to Bordeaux Begles.

La Rochelle flew to Bristol Airport on Thursday late afternoon last week. To play against Gloucester rugby team the next day which the score was 16-27 to La Rochelle. The team flew on an Iberia Air Nostrum CRJ-200 (EC-GZA). The aircraft then departed Bristol airport at 1:30am on Saturday morning which is crazy to see a plane depart at this time.
