Leeds Bradford International Airport is situated 17km (11 miles) northwest of Leeds. It serves passengers within Yorkshire and surrounding areas, mostly to sunspot destinations in Europe, Greece and Spain.
Leeds Bradford International has often been criticised by passengers as congested and chaotic. There are long-term plans to renovate the airport though. Future travellers can look forward to a major expansion of the landside face of the terminal, as well as the installation of new check-in and security screening facilities. Both promise to increase the terminal’s handling capacity and speed up passenger circulation.
Leeds Bradford’s elevated position makes it vulnerable to adverse weather conditions. If you have a bit of time between flights there is plenty to do such as shopping or enjoying a snack.
Leeds/Bradford (LBA), located 10.4 km from the city centre, is the airport you fly into when you book flights to Leeds.
