Councillors in North Somerset last night have recommended it for approval but it's now up to the planning committee.
Bristol Airport say they're pleased at last night's decision - which recommended their £150m expansion plans get the green light.
Members of North Somerset Council - who represent the areas directly affected - were expected to give it the final go ahead last night.
But they recognised it was a controversial scheme so have asked the council's full planning committe to now make the decision.
They don't meet again until April 28th - unless a special meeting is organised before.
Campaigners are also pleased though after the delay in the process.
People from the Stop Bristol Airport Expansion group say it now means they've got more time to campaign.
