New plan for Leeds Bradford Airport terminal
January 15, 2020
The new plan will propose an environmentally efficient three-storey terminal building on a new site within the airport boundary. The airport claims its more efficient and sustainable design would enable it to meet its target of net zero carbon emissions from airport operations by 2023.
The new building would offer improved shopping, restaurants and bars and better access. Its planned location is near the site of what is currently long-term parking at the eastern side of the airport and nearer to the proposed rail link. The Leeds to Harrogate railway runs just below ground in Bramhope Tunnel just half-a-mile from the new building.
If the plan is approved, the airport is aiming to start work before the end of 2020 to complete the terminal in early-2023. The new plan is due to be submitted to Leeds City Council in the Spring.
