The Princess Royal has officially opened the new terminal extension at Bristol Airport.

The redeveloped east terminal building features a larger departure lounge, more shops and restaurants and a second executive lounge.

Her Royal Highness was greeted by school children who sang Christmas carols in the check-in area.
