Losing any of your valuables is unpleasant, but if you’ve lost an item at Leeds Bradford Airport we may be able to help you get it back.
Did your luggage not come out on the carousel?
You’ll need to contact your airline and speak to their baggage handling agents. Searching for your airline and handling agent contact number should bring you an up-to-date contact number.
Did you leave an item on the plane?
If you have left any of your belongings on board an aircraft then you need to contact your airline directly as soon as possible.
Lost property in and around the airport
If you think you’ve lost something in and around the terminal including our car parks, the best way to contact the Lost Property department is by email and you should provide your name, contact details and a full description of your lost property to:
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
All emails will be responded to within 5 working days of receipt.
This line is open 24 hours, but should we not be able to take your call, please be prepared to leave a message giving your name, contact details, and a full description of your item.
- Telephone number: 0113 391 3232
Collecting airport lost property
If you wish for someone else to collect an item on your behalf, please inform the department, by either email or telephone, of the full name of the person coming to collect the item(s). Please note, arriving at the airport without arranging collection of an item may result in a delay in locating and returning your property due to the busy nature of the department
