About Leeds Bradford, Yorkshire's Airport



Leeds Bradford Airport’s (LBA) 'Route to 2030' Strategic Development Plan (SDP) final Masterplan document informs stakeholders and the local community of the airport’s likely growth and development to 2030. This document was published in March 2017, replacing LBA’s 2005 Masterplan. 

Alongside the SDP sits the Surface Access Strategy (SAS) which has also been updated to set out short, medium and long term plans for improving surface transport to the region. Both documents can be downloaded below: 



The public consultation period ran from 3 March 2016 to 30 April 2016 and the airport arranged a series of locations for the documents to be viewed during that time.

Terminal Extension

A planning application to build a multi-million pound, three-storey extension to our terminal building was approved in December 2018. Construction of the extension will begin spring 2019. The people of Yorkshire were invited to contribute to the future development of our airport. The public consultation is now closed.

What to expect from our terminal expansion 

A multi-million pound, three-storey extension to our terminal building that will transform the immigration, baggage reclaim and customs process. The extension will include: new, larger departure gates, seating areas and new retail and food & beverage outlets. The proposals are in line with the airports ‘Route to 2030 Strategic Development Plan’ published in March 2017.
