British Airways cancels all flights to Leeds Bradford Airport

British Airways has confirmed it has axed all of its flights to Leeds Bradford Airport.

It means up to ten flights a week connecting Leeds Bradford Airport to London Heathrow are no longer in operation.

The airline says it has taken the decision based on an evaluation of 'where our customers tell us they want to travel.'

Last month it was announced that British Airways is set to make up to 12,000 workers redundant due to a drop in business.

“We are sorry to suspend our flights to Leeds Bradford after many years. We regularly evaluate our routes based on where our customers tell us they want to travel. We remain committed to connecting businesses, families and friends right across our UK network.”

“We are disappointed that BA has taken the decision to cease its route between LBA and Heathrow. Domestic and international connectivity remains critical to support business and the region’s economy and we hope to welcome BA back in the future.”
