Leeds Bradford Airport

Leeds Bradford International Airport (LBA)


The Leeds Bradford International Airport (LBA) is the principal airport for the cities of both Bradford and Leeds located in the British region of Yorkshire. Having seen the planes take-off from its fields since the 1930s, this airport has been modernised and redeveloped in order to handle the three million passengers that now transit through this hub annually.


This airport has comprehensive facilities covering all the standard amenities that travellers need. For communication access, you can use the free WiFi, the internet kiosks, and the public telephones. For last minute money admin, you can take out cash from the ATMs in the terminal, and use the bureau de change services. There is a premier lounge within the airport, plus a children’s play area you can utilise.


If you’re hungry whilst transiting, you will be able to pick up fast food, sit down with a coffee, relax with a drink at the sports bar, and enjoy grab and go sandwiches and snacks. You can also find a small, but surprisingly well-stocked selection of shops here, with a large duty-free section offering a wide range of good, a newsagents, and a travel accessories store.


From Oz, you will definitely be subject to at least two layovers, but there are plenty of airlines that will code-share or run this route entirely. Look for flights with British Airways, Qatar Airways, KLM, Malaysia Airlines, Emirates, Aer Lingus, Singapore Airlines, Qantas, and many more.
