LBA News - Exciting changes at LBA 


1st February 2017

Numerous developments have been progressing within our terminal building over the winter season so far, with more to come ahead of the summer.

Major investment is being made in order to continually improve the passenger experience. The frontage of our building has already been completely opened up with glass frontage – creating more light and space for people walking between check-in halls. Soon, a new flooring will be laid throughout the landside area of LBA to complete the fresh new look for departing and arriving passengers.

An extra security lane is being added in time for the summer, so that passengers can proceed through to the departure lounge even quicker. Once through security, more seating is being added to our food and drink space in the Saltaire bar.

Configurations to our gates are also underway and there will be a first floor extension carried out to create more free seating for departing passengers at peak times.

John Parkin, Chief Executive of Leeds Bradford Airport, said: “All of these developments are critical for LBA to deliver the very best service and experience for all of our passengers. It’s an exciting time here at LBA, where a lot of changes are being undertaken to achieve to provide an updated, more spacious terminal.

“Anybody travelling through in the coming months will notice significant building work being carried out. While this takes place, we thank you for your continued support. We very much look forward to unveiling all of the elements of the terminal upgrades in due course and ahead of what we expect to be our busiest ever summer.”
