New retail and F&B outlets are on course to arrive at Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA) after the city council rubber-stamped plans to extend the main terminal.

As reported, the airport is due to re-model its existing terminal building facilities, which includes new commercial offers at the departure lounge, following the completion of the £12m ($15.7m) three-storey extension.

This will also feature additional food & beverage outlets, an uprated arrivals hall, larger immigration and baggage reclaim areas and departure gate facilities. The work is set to commence next Spring.

Praising the announcement, David Laws, CEO, LBA said: “With work scheduled to be complete in winter 2019/2020 we are increasing peak-time capacity to deliver a first class passenger experience and create an airport Yorkshire can be proud of.

“This will allow us to attract a greater range of airlines and support route development, which in turn will deliver additional international destinations that our business and leisure passengers’ desire.”
