A terminal move for the newly launched British Airways flights from Leeds Bradford Airport will mean a shorter journey time for commuters to and from the capital. From this summer the new service, which started on December 9th last year, will move to Terminal 5 from Terminal 1.

The move will cut minimum connection times to onward British Airways flights by 30 minutes, to just one hour.

From the start of the summer programme on March 31 the schedule from Leeds Bradford will be reduced from four to three flights a day. Tony Hallwood, Leeds Bradford Airport’s Marketing Director, said:

“British Airways decision to transfer Leeds Bradford services into T5 will help to transform the worldwide travel plans of Yorkshire's regional businesses and leisure travellers.

With a wide choice of connecting destinations now on offer from Heathrow there has never been a better time to fly locally from Yorkshire’s gateway airport."
