Thu, 09 Apr, 2009

Leeds Bradford International Airport and its car park are gearing up for an 'eggstra' busy weekend.

Over the Easter bank holiday, more than 25,000 passengers are expected to pass through the facility's doors.

The airport offers a number of domestic routes, which it asserted would be ideal for those who want to visit friends and family around the country over the coming days. Scotland and the south-west are among the services on offer.

Possible flights to holiday hotspots include to Spain, the Canary Islands and Cyprus - and city break destinations such as Paris, Amsterdam, Barcelona and Prague are also popular.

Tony Hallwood, commercial and aviation development director, explained families like to take advantage of the Easter break.

"We look forward to welcoming them at the start of their holiday, alongside the many passengers who arrive at Leeds Bradford to visit their loved ones during this holiday season," he commented.

Vacationers planning on using Leeds Bradford International Airport's car park can access the location from the M1, M62 and the Yorkshire section of the A1.
