Leeds Bradford Airport reopens to passengers as first flight dates for Jet2, Ryanair, AerLingus, KLM and Eastern Airways announced
The gradual resumption of arrivals and departures follows months of preparation by staff at LBA.
The airport has implemented a range of measures in line with the latest guidance from the Government to keep passengers and staff safe.
Joanna Wild, Chief Commercial Officer at LBA, said: “We’re delighted to welcome back passengers as lockdown measures are eased but appreciate that some people may be feeling apprehensive at the prospect of flying again. We want to reassure everybody that our number one priority is to make the airport a safe place for our passengers and staff.
“To do this, we have put many new measures in place, with clear guidance provided for people passing through the terminal. It’s crucial that people using the airport continue to recognise the importance of fundamentals like washing their hands, using appropriate face coverings, and maintaining social distancing.”
Over the coming weeks, airlines will be resuming flights at LBA in stages.
The current plan to restart flights from each airline is as follows:
Ryanair 21st June
Eastern Airways 29th June
KLM 4th July
Jet2 15th July
Aer Lingus 1st August
LBA recommends that all passengers refer to their airline’s Covid-19 procedures ahead of flying, as there could be variation.
