Flying figures highest ever at Leeds Bradford Airport


Leeds Bradford Airport has reported record-breaking passenger numbers of 3.3m in 2013.

This is an 11 per cent increase on the previous calendar year – cementing its status as one of the UK’s fastest growing airports.

Over the past 12 months the airport has served over 70 domestic and international destinations and introduced new airlines such as British Airways, Monarch and Thomson Airways.

Having added services to places such as Grenoble, Innsbruck, Split and Zante in 2013, the airport will add flights to Scandinavia next year.

Tony Hallwood, LBA’s aviation development and marketing director, said: “2013 has been a truly remarkable year for Leeds Bradford Airport as we expanded our services offering more domestic and international destinations than ever before.

“Our achievements were also recognised by the Airport Operators Association, who in November

awarded Leeds Bradford the title of Best Airport under 6m passengers.”
