First phase of improvement work completed at Leeds Bradford

Leeds Bradford Airport has announced the completion of the first phase of a £2 million improvement to its forecourt

Leeds Bradford Airport has announced the completion of the first phase of a £2 million improvement to its forecourt.

Passengers will benefit from a redesigned bus terminal linking the airport with frequent services to Leeds, Bradford, Harrogate and York.

Furthermore, travellers arriving by car will now be able to use designated drop-off and pick-up zones.

The forecourt’s layout has also been improved, with travellers benefiting from new pedestrian walkways and real-time information screens.

Tony Hallwood, the Leeds Bradford’s commercial and aviation development director, said the airport was "delighted" with passenger feedback regarding the forecourt upgrade.

"With further forecourt work due to be completed by April we are on target to deliver an increasing high standard of facilities that our passengers deserve," he said.

Further modernisation work will take place during the remainder of winter – part of the airport’s £28 million investment in its terminal building.

Manx2 said last month that it had enjoyed a 15 percent increase in bookings during the first two weeks of this year on its flights between Leeds Bradford and the Isle of Man.
