Leeds Airport development

An £11m expansion of Leeds Bradford International Airport is now under way with planned completion by summer 2012. The impressive new facilities will significantly improve passenger experience.

John Parkin, Chief Executive, said: ‘I am delighted to announce the next stage of our planned investment to transform the passenger terminal at Leeds Bradford Airport.  It marks an important milestone in the development of Yorkshire’s airport and our desire to provide the very best facilities for our rapidly growing numbers of customers and airlines.”

“The broad economic conditions are challenging, but we are the UK’s fastest growing regional airport and with the strong support of our shareholders, Bridgepoint, we are confident now is the time to invest in our future.”

“The terminal development will provide a 65% increase in airside space over two floors, creating a new departure lounge, a new range of upgraded food and beverage offers, a major walk-through Tax and Duty Free store and additional retail units.”

We will also be enlarging the security search zone, all of the boarding gate areas and building a covered walkway to aircraft from the terminal to deliver the very best in facilities and experience for our customers.” www.leedsbradfordairport.co.uk
