The Easter trip will be the first direct flight from Leeds Bradford to the city.

The company already operates charter flights to Iceland from the airport.

Passengers will be able to experience the traditional Easter festival of Semana Santa, which features processions and street performances.

LBA's aviation development director Chris Sanders said:

“We are delighted that Super Break have chosen Leeds Bradford Airport for this very special departure. Seville is a great city to visit at any time, but even more so at Easter as the city celebrates with a series of colourful and eye-catching parades through its streets. As this holiday is from Good Friday to Easter Monday, we expect very strong demand.”
