Leeds Bradford Airport widens flight programme

Posted 3 July 2017 · Add Comment

The start of summer has heralded the beginning of several new services from Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA).



Thomas Cook has made a return to the airport, offering a range of holiday options to European destinations including Alicante, Larnaca and Tenerife, tour operator Thomson has started a new Faro service for summer 2017 and has confirmed a new service to Bulgaria for summer 2018; again offering passengers more choice, whilst Jet 2.com have launched routes to Halkidiki, Girona, Naples and Almeria this summer further expanding their extensive network from Leeds Bradford Airport for holidaymakers travelling from the region.

A new route announcement from Flybe came earlier this month as the airline introduces a Dusseldorf service for the winter season. This builds upon their recently introduced Newquay route and their multi-frequency daily Belfast route, showing real investment and commitment to LBA’s programme.

Meanwhile, Ryanair are operating their Vilnius, Warsaw and Gran Canaria routes through the summer for the first time.

Aurigny, Guernsey’s airline, has celebrated its first successful year, during which time more than 10,000 passengers have travelled on the route.

LBA stalwart KLM continues to offer a network of worldwide connections through Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. This month, the airline will host an event in Leeds to mark the support and custom from their ‘Flying Blue’ passengers. 

Tony Hallwood, Aviation Development Director at LBA, said: “With this widening programme of flights, Leeds Bradford Airport looks set to have a very busy summer and beyond. It’s fantastic to be introducing a range of new routes for our business and leisure passengers.”
