Poland routes planned for Leeds-Bradford Airport

Tue, 02 Feb, 2010

New routes to Poland are being planned for passengers travelling out of Leeds-Bradford International Airport (LBIA).

According to a report in the Telegraph and Argus, Ryanair is thinking of increasing the number of flights to Krakow, providing a link for Polish residents and tourists alike.

Dara Brady, deputy head of sales and marketing at Ryanair, told the news provider that it is not only flights to eastern Europe that are being planned.

"We're also seeing strong demand for Nantes and Montpellier flights and will be developing the potential of Malta, which has strong links with the UK," he stated.

These new services may come as Ryanair prepares to move its northern base to Leeds from Manchester Airport in March. It is thought that this change in location could bring an additional one million passengers a year to LBIA.

Passengers travelling from the Yorkshire hub also have the option of flying to Tunisia, after Jet2.com announced it would be starting the service this spring.
