What’s new for Yorkshire’s Airport?
1st May 2018
You may have heard about it, or you might have already seen the new signage, but we’d still like to share with you what becoming Leeds Bradford Yorkshire’s Airport means for us and our customers.
The brand change
We want to celebrate the region we are a part of and continue to supply an airport the whole of Yorkshire can be proud of. Last year we consulted our customers and local community and began to plan how we could best improve the airport experience; with changes having already taken place and many still to come.
We want to inspire our community and that’s why we aspire to be the first choice airport for our customers, providing excellent connectivity and positive customer experiences.
Our terminal changes
We’d be surprised if you don’t notice the many improvements we’ve worked on over the last 12 months. But here are some of our favourites:
- The opening of 3 brand-new purpose built lounges
- Adding the newly-fitted food & drink outlets Cabin and The Beer House
- Refurbishing the ever-popular Saltaire Bar & Eatery
- Commencing work on the new Starbucks coffee shop and additional retail outlets
- Developing our Meet & Greet car parking service
- Opening our new low-cost car park, Viking Airport Parking
- Expanding our Security areas to help reduce waiting times and develop our service
- Adding more comfortable passenger seating to terminal waiting areas
- Updating our signage and decor throughout the airport to reflect our new brand
