Yorkshire’s, Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA), has undergone a massive airside redevelopment and improvements to the terminal front.
Completion of the first phase of redevelopment at the region’s largest airport comes just as the peak summer season gets underway. Designed to enhance the passenger experience, the multi-million pound development has seen the entire departure lounge transformed with additional seating plus a range of new shops, cafes, restaurants, bar areas and airport lounges.
“We are delighted to offer our passengers even more choice in our departure lounge, as well as improved facilities for business travellers. We hope people will see this as the start of things to come for this airport,” said the airport’s CEO, David Laws.
Leeds United fans can make the most of the new Leeds United retail shop that has been added to the terminal’s retail offering. In addition a brand new Starbucks facility has been added, while bars and restaurants throughout the terminal have been refurbished with a modern and vibrant feel.
Three purpose built lounges offer stunning floor to ceiling runway views.
Works on the terminal front include an improved Meet and Greet car-park facility, while earlier this year a new off-site car park with shuttle buses to and from the terminal was also opened.
“Our passengers’ journey begins right here at the airport and it’s vital we give them the best possible experience. We have listened to their feedback and as the development of LBA continues, we hope to keep improving the customer experience and ensure our passengers feel welcome,” said Laws.
Explaining how work will now continue with phase two of the terminal infrastructure, Laws added: “We want the people of our thriving region to get behind their airport and help us move forward. The more people use the airport the more successful we can be.”
