Leeds-Bradford redevelops car parking facilities

Tue, 05 Aug, 2008

Work has started on the first phase of a multi-million pound project to redevelop Leeds-Bradford Airport's car parking facilities.

The relocation of the Yorkshire Executive Club car park, as well as improvements to airport shuttle services and the creation of new taxi zone are expected to be completed in the autumn.

After this, a rapid pick-up and drop-off area will be developed, while the current short-stay car park - with new pedestrian walkway - will be remodelled.

John Parkin, the airport's chief executive, said he is determined to improve the quality of services provided to passengers.

"This investment will deliver a significant enhancement to our car parking and public transport facilities," he added.

According to Leeds-Bradford Airport's website, passenger growth is forecast to slow down to around 3.5 per cent a year from around 2009.
