    Route Development

    Bobby not at all. Leeds and Bradford city regions have multiple diaspora populations with a propensity to fly. Most of those diasporas originate east of those hubs, therefore tapping into them is not fantasy. I like rainbows and unicorns but I never mix them with business..... A Middle East...

    Interestingly the Middle East hubs of Abu Dhabi and Dubai are only 79 miles away from each other and Dubai to Sharjah is just 15 miles. Abu Dhabi and Dubai are distinct cities in the UAE but have lots of overlap on cities served, this is possible due to onward feed via the hub and spoke set...

    Let’s hope LBA management are engaging with airlines where significant gaps exist. TCX and their profile in Turkey and Hurghada would be natural for our marketing team to entice.

    Route Development

    Back to LBA and route development, I wonder if Hurghada could be added next year as the news is talking about non-EU holiday destinations featuring highly in bookings from the UK. Turkey and Tunisia feature from LBA but Egypt is missing, so I wonder if there is any scope for Jet2/ Thomas Cook?

    My reference to the potential inbound tourism was more thinking of weekly charter. Market the airport to say the German market (as an example) get a weekly rotation and move on to scheduled, similar to how things develop say at NQY or JER. tarnspotter I’m not sure I agree that the welcome in...

    I think that’s a well made point TheLocalYokel, also most people may know there’s regional airports in whichever location, but may assume routes are not served and expect them to be served only by larger airports. I often hear comments that people don’t believe they can fly from LBA to places...

    I think there is a pre airport symbol only sign that says for Leeds Bradford Airport follow ✈️ Thereafter it is just the symbol, but not on all routes the M606 doesn’t have one. That said most people one would hope would have a semblance of direction and recognition of the county they are in

    Hi Karfa, I’m slack as a bag when it comes to technical stuff, but I assume the angle is too high to pick up the beam therefore renders it inactive?

    Infrastructure, Construction & Developments

    How cruel that the gate 8 destination was within our grasp! I think this will be a good addition of space - I agree it looks a bit sparse and basic but it is only a rendered view and could change. The girdered look isn’t that rare nowadays, it comes with the territory of quick build and you can...

    sherburnflyer92 I think Turkish would be a much better option anyway due to transfer potential at the new airport at Arnavutkoy. With the massive new facility Turkish will need to fill it, therefore I could see LBA featuring at some point. With West Yorkshire having a demographic mix that would...

    Leeds Bradford - General Thread

    I’m posting here as I think it’s probably the most appropriate place. Reading across the LBA pages for me has been a bit frustrating lately, lots of doom and gloom and comparing to other airports. I totally get it, we are not where we should be and infrastructure should have been sorted long ago...

    Route Development

    As a Calderdale resident who lives even closer to MAN than South Bradford, I can assure you that LBA is definitely quicker and easier to get to. The main reason being, that whilst access is poor there are plenty of poor alternatives if something happens. So if there is an emergency event or an...

    So with the increase in frequency, but reduction in capacity due to loss of 757; I assume it will pretty much be status quo passengers carried?

    I think we should appreciate that someone has taken the effort to set the web cam up with additions that you can choose to use. To whoever set up I’m appreciative!
