Leeds Bradford Airport Reviews

Whilst getting to the airport may be a little harder for others outside the area, once at the airport, the small regional airport is a fantastic airport in the sense that every part of my journey was a hassle free. The airport was clean and tidy, easy to navigate, and well suited for every type of person.
- Luke

Reasonably easy to reach by car or bus from surrounding area. Check-in and security smooth and quick. There are two lounges, one for business class (excellent bacon buttie) and another for tourist who have paid for upgrade. Departure area can become crowded at busy times
- Steve Dean

On the top of a hill so flights cancelled easily. Fairly small airport with not many amenities. Small check in but there was bio queue for our morning Jet2 flight so we quickly got through, security made me concerned, it seemed you could easily sneak through the area. Burger King in the decent sized, modern waiting area and a large duty free store. From the waiting area there is a large viewing window out onto the runway and taxiways, you can see flights take off/land.
- Luke Dyson

I love LBA because it's near home BUT because of the very scare landings I have had there I am afraid I have to stick with Manchester from now on. I just can't stand the short runway again. Its always windy and if it's windy AND raining it's just awful. The landings are heavy and breaking sharply, it's just too much for me and it's such a shame because the rest of the airport is great. Short stay/drop off parking is ridiculous price though! Food and drink mega expensive as usual!
- Lorraine Conway Crut

Great small airport, bag drop desk opened about 15 mins earlier than advertised, which was fantastic. Security seemed rather lackluster though. Once airside, a good variety of places to grab a bite to eat and while away the time before boarding.
- Robert Brooks

this airport seems to have got slightly better but it may be that it was not as busy .but there is still limited amount of seating areas and these seem to be scattered at Radom. But the main compliant is the £3 drop and pick up charge Plus the cosy cartel that the Airport have with the Taxi firm .Also they have put pressure on other taxis by stopping the parking limits and cost and also they have pressured the Police to enforce dropping off on the public road
- Brian Taylor

Use this airport most often, but after resent trip and compared to other airports the departure lounge is lacking ie unless you are in a bar or having a meal there are very few seats to actuly sit on while waiting for flight !. the ground floor gents is allso in definate need of a renew or refurb the walls and floor are apalling. flights and the staff are all ok ,its just the facilitys that need upgrading
- Paul Whincup

Very good airport but be careful as the departure lounge is loud and you can barely hear the announcements for flights so make sure to check the departure boards frequently wifi is good and airport is clean
- Bevan Emmott

Perhaps I'm too familiar with this airport but it's my joint least favourite. Public transport to it is poor and the drop-off charge extortionate (although you can walk 500m from the Long Stay for a free hour). It's cramped and often very crowded. Security is an affront to humanity - they like humiliating as many people as possible (even making a disabled guy in a wheelchair stand). The retail areas are cramped and unimpressive, there isn't really any lounge area, and unless you're lucky and get an airbridge, expect a bus ride or a walk along the world's longest shabby bus shelter to your aircraft. It's on a hill, built cross-wind, so landings are often eventful.
- Chris Wood

Very busy terminal for early morning departures, but all security lanes were open and moving well. Boarding for our flight was announced earlier than expected as well which was a bonus.
