Busiest Ever Christmas for Leeds Bradford

Leeds Bradford Airport is celebrating as it expects its busiest ever Christmas getaway.

The regional airport is expecting a staggering 100,000 passengers over Christmas and New Year this year.

The busy festive season ends a successful year for the airport, which has seen 3.2 passengers use the airport in 2014.

The airport is being used by not only those jetting off for winter sun or ski destinations this year, but thanks to the introduction of domestic services to Southampton, Aberdeen and Jersey, locals can avoid busy road and rail networks and fly instead of relying on public transport to cross the UK.

Speaking about its impending festive season, Tony Hallwood, Aviation Development Director at Leeds Bradford Airport, said: “We look forward to welcoming passengers to Leeds Bradford over the festive period and our airport team will make the start of their Xmas Getaway as relaxing as possible. As record numbers of passengers take advantage of our wide choice of destinations searching for some sun or snow, we also look forward to giving our overseas visitors a truly warm Yorkshire welcome.’’
