The first phase of Leeds Bradford Airport’s redevelopment programme has been completed. The airport, recently rebranded ‘Leeds Bradford: Yorkshire’s Airport’, has undergone a massive airside redevelopment and improvements to the terminal front. Designed to offer more choice for customers, with a modern and vibrant feel, the multi-million-pound development has seen additional seating in the departure lounge plus a range of new shops, cafes, restaurants, bar areas and lounges.
Work on the terminal front is now complete and includes an improved meet and greet car park facility. In March, the airport opened its first off-site car park.
With an ambition to create an airport that matches the needs and requirements of the region it serves and the surrounding area, panels across the front of the terminal building have been fully decorated with multi-coloured versions of Welcome to Yorkshire’s ‘Y’ logo.
Chief Executive, David Laws said: “We are delighted to offer our passengers even more choice in our departure lounge, as well as improved facilities for business travellers. We hope people will see this as the start of things to come for this airport. Work continues to improve our route offering for both business and leisure services while we are now working on our exciting plans for phase two of the terminal infrastructure to improve security and passenger flow. We hope to have more exciting announcements in the very near future.”
