Whilst British Airways appears to have given up on Leeds Bradford Airport, the airport itself sees a positive future.
Leeds City Council approved plans for a new terminal building last week.
The airport had originally proposed to expand its existing terminal, parts of which date back to the 1960s.
Whilst this plan had received planning approval, the airport chose to drop it and returned with a fresh plan. This will see a brand new 34,000 square metre building built within the existing airport boundary.
There are, unfortunately, no plans for a major upgrade to the surrounding road and rail infrastructure. This has always been the pinch point for the airport, with many local residents finding it easier to reach Manchester or Doncaster Sheffield.
