GO AIR

Air Travel in Leeds Leeds has its own airport the Leeds Bradford International Airport [map]. The airport is easy to get to and is signposted on all major roads over a wide area, including the M1 and M62 motorways and the Yorkshire section of the A1.

The airport has a wide range of facilities including a number of well-known eateries and plenty of room to chill out before your big journey. It also offers a hi-tech check in area, nursing parents facilities, a new international departure area incorporating the White Rose Cafe, the Yorkshire Hero pub, a children's play area, duty free, Delice De France and a books plus outlet.

The airport recently became one of the few airports within the UK, and one of the few public places in Europe, to provide the new wireless Internet facility, ‘Wi-Fi’. The facility allows users to access the Internet without the need for cables and without the hassle of changing settings on their laptop or PDA. This gives passengers the freedom to switch on and surf the net in any location in the terminal, at any time.
