We are thrilled that Ryanair are significantly increasing their capacity from Leeds Bradford in summer 2017, offering their widest ever low cost flight choice from Yorkshire’s gateway airport. With 5 new routes, including 3 to European capital cities, Ryanair’s expanded flying programme of 25 routes will deliver wider business destination choice and encourage a growth in inbound tourism to Yorkshire, while increasing the choice for leisure and city breaks for our region’s holidaymakers.

This substantial growth is fantastic news for our regional economy and highlights the continued growth and strength of the Leeds City Region alongside supporting the creation of new jobs across Yorkshire. We look forward to welcoming a 20% growth in the number of passengers flying from Leeds Bradford with Ryanair next summer who can now increasingly fly from closer to home.”
