Record passenger growth on Leeds Bradford Airport to Glasgow route

Flights between Leeds Bradford Airport and Glasgow have taken off, as the route has recently become the fastest growing route on Loganair’s domestic network.

In addition, it is also one of LBA’s fastest growing services as passengers have realised the significant time savings and attractive fares now on offer. The route, which is very popular with business passengers and weekend break visitors to Glasgow, is operated by Loganair – and bookable via Flybe .

With road or rail journey times from Leeds to Glasgow taking around foyr hours, the flight time of just over an hour represents a huge saving for both business and leisure travellers. Apart from connecting Yorkshire with Glasgow, this twice daily weekday service also offers a range of excellent onward connections on the Loganair network across Scotland including the Shetland Islands, Orkney Islands and the outer Hebrides.

Lower fares recently introduced on the Glasgow route start from £78.99 (including taxes) and so there has never been a better time to take to the skies and fly to Scotland from LBA.
Jonathan Hinkles, Loganair’s Managing Director, said: “We’re delighted with the response to our new, lower fares on the Leeds Bradford Airport – Glasgow route, which has become the fastest growing route in the Loganair network and the fastest growing route at Leeds Bradford. Our twice-daily service is ideal for business travel, and increasing numbers of customers are discovering that flying is a much more convenient option than a long journey by road or rail.

“We’re looking forward to building on this success with further expansion of our services linking Scotland and West Yorkshire in the near future.”

Tony Hallwood, Aviation Development Director at Leeds Bradford Airport’s said: “It is not surprising that demand on the Leeds Bradford to Glasgow route is taking off – with lower fares and a flying time of only 65 minutes there is no quicker or more relaxing way to Scotland.”
