Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA) has been awarded best airport with up to 6 million passengers at the annual Airport Operators Association (AOA) awards ceremony, which took place in London this week.
The awards recognise excellence within the travel industry, with votes cast by UK airlines through the British Air Transport Association (BATA); the UK airlines trade association.
Tony Hallwood, Leeds Bradford Airport's Aviation Development & Marketing Director said, “I am delighted that Leeds Bradford Airport has been recognised as best in the UK in its category. This is a fantastic achievement for the airport team, which demonstrates the success of Leeds Bradford following the completion of the £11 million terminal development last year and the subsequent growth in passenger numbers.
“We remain dedicated to further improve and expand services available from Leeds Bradford following the introduction of British Airways and Monarch Airlines alongside the growth of Jet2.com. We look forward to introducing new airline partners and routes in 2014.
“We are particularly pleased to have been awarded this accolade through votes cast by airlines; this affirms Leeds Bradford as Yorkshire’s airport of choice for airlines and their passengers.”
AOA Chairman Ed Anderson said "I congratulate Leeds Bradford Airport on being chosen by airline members of the British Air Transport Association as the winner of this coveted award."
