Leeds Bradford Airport says 2013 will be its busiest ever Christmas and New Year, with more than 50,000 passengers expected to pass through the terminal over the holiday period.
The festive rush tops off a year which has seen record numbers of passengers – more than 3.2 million so far.
The winter hotspots of Tenerife and Lanzarote top the destination chart, as holidaymakers go in search of guaranteed sunshine, while Innsbruck is the latest destination to be added to the airport’s list of ski routes.
Other popular domestic destinations flying from Leeds Bradford this Christmas include London Heathrow, Belfast, Glasgow and Aberdeen, whilst Amsterdam, Prague and Paris remain firm favourites for European city breaks. The airport’s peak travel day is predicted to be Boxing Day. To help passengers out the airport has created ‘airport ambassadors’.
