The first terminal expansion will begin construction this fall, which will be a 9,500 square meter, three-story addition to the current terminal, coupled with a substantial renovation of the current terminal structure. Additional aircraft stands, more space, quicker security, new shops and cafés, a larger baggage reclaim area, and an expanded immigration hall will all benefit passengers, reports Contract Journal.

“Leeds Bradford Airport has played a crucial role in the ambitious growth of the city of Leeds and the larger Yorkshire region, supporting connectivity with some of the world’s best travel and business destinations,” said Cathal Montague, regional director at Farrans Construction.

“We look forward to realising the terminal’s next phase goal through expansion and modernisation. The construction industry will receive a significant boost from this project thanks to the jobs it will generate through direct labour, supplier chain, and apprenticeships. We have a long-standing relationship with Leeds because we have completed numerous significant transportation and infrastructure projects there. We are in the final stages of delivering Live Oasis St. Alban’s Place, a 20-story student housing project on Belgrave Street, which Farrans opened a new office in the city centre last year.

To produce a beneficial, long-lasting impact while establishing Leeds Bradford Airport, “We intend to keep working closely with community groups, charities, and schools to create local employment, training, and apprenticeship possibilities.”
