LBA News - Summer 2017 Routes
1st February 2017
Summer 2017 is set to be even busier than ever at Leeds Bradford Airport, with new routes, even more capacity and a host of improvements set to be unveiled at the airport in time for the summer season.
Jet 2.com are introducing new routes to Berlin, Halkidiki, Naples, Almeria and Girona for the summer season in addition to Ryanair’s new routes to Warsaw, Gran Canaria, Vilnius and Bratislava. Thomas Cook are returning to LBA, with a wide range of package holidays on offer and Thomson have also extended their programme at Leeds Bradford Airport. We are delighted to be increasing the options and destinations for our passengers.
Our final Masterplan 2023 is set to be published this year, detailing the changes and developments we will be delivering at the airport to improve passenger experiences. Passengers will be able to enjoy the first stages of those changes this summer, with more light and space in the landside walkway and check-in area, extra security lanes, new retail units and improved toilet facilities.
The increased routes and capacity mean we now fly to more than 75 destinations across 25 countries. With nearly 22,000 flights taking off from LBA each year, we are set to surpass our current record of 3.5m passengers that flew from LBA in 2016.
Tony Hallwood, Aviation Development Director at LBA, said: “We’re really excited for what 2017 will bring for LBA and our passengers. Air connectivity is essential for business and leisure passengers and we are determined to ensure that both inbound and outbound travellers have the very best experience when flying through LBA.
