Posted 28 March 2017 · Add Comment

Leeds Bradford Airport has announced that its terminal development and improvements are progressing well and are on schedule for completion this summer.



Construction work has taken place over the winter, in preparation for what is expected to be LBA’s busiest ever summer season.

Overall, more than £2.5m is being invested in the terminal and a number of enhancements have already been delivered ahead of schedule.

The main entrance to LBA has already been transformed; offices have been removed to create increased circulation space between the two check-in halls and the installation of new glass windows and flooring has created a brighter and lighter feel on entering the terminal.

An extra security lane will be constructed shortly to help passengers access departures quicker and increased space in Saltaire bar is being added in the departure lounge.

In addition, work is underway to create a 6,450sq ft first-floor extension to the departure lounge; adding a new large seating area for passengers as they wait for flights. New car park buses are already in operation and toilet refurbishments have been completed. 

Sophie Murr, head of projects at LBA, said: “These are transformational projects across all areas of LBA, which will make a huge positive difference to the passenger experience. All contractors on site are working 24 hours a day and are undertaking tasks with minimum disruption to passengers.

“It has been fantastic to unveil some of the works already and we look forward to moving forward with all other developments in a timely manner to deliver an updated and more spacious terminal for customers in 2017.”
