Aviation Minister Welcomes £12m Investment At Leed Bradford Airport
Aviation Minister Liz Sugg today gave her stamp of approval to the £12M extension taking place at Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA).

The major investment will improve passenger experience at the Yeadon based airport where Baroness Sugg witnessed the official commencement of construction.

The project, which will see the main airport terminal building extended, will also significantly improve travel experiences for passengers, including larger immigration and baggage reclaim areas, better departure gate facilities, more shopping and food outlets and additional free seating.

Baroness Sugg said: “The development at Leeds Bradford Airport will not only further strengthen it as an important global gateway to Yorkshire, but will also provide passengers with an exceptional travelling experience to and from the region.



“Improvements for local communities as well as major infrastructure projects like investment at Leeds station, Northern Powerhouse Rail, HS2 and Heathrow expansion will continue to bring our country closer together, helping people move around more quickly and easily than ever before.”

The work at LBA builds on the major investment already going on in the area, including more than £170m Government injection into wider public transport improvements in the Leeds area.

By 2020, the Government will have pumped a record £13bn into transport investment across the North, including in developing major infrastructure projects such as HS2 and Northern Powerhouse Rail.
