Terminal extension

Plans for a major extension to the main airport terminal building at Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA) have been approved by Leeds City Council.

The decision means that construction of the two/three storey extension to the main airport terminal building to provide an improved arrival experience, including significantly larger immigration and baggage reclaim areas, improved departure gate facilities, additional retail and food and beverage outlets and additional free seating will look to commence in spring 2019.

Part of the airport’s ‘Route to 2030 Strategic Development Plan’ - which will see annual passenger numbers increase from four million to seven million by 2030 - it is the biggest investment to date in the site by AMP Capital since it purchased the airport in October 2017. The planning application was made on behalf of Leeds Bradford Airport by Deloitte Real Estate.
