MORE details have been confirmed about a new £150 million terminal at Leeds Bradford Airport.

In January the airport unveiled plans to create what it says will be ‘one of the most environmentally efficient terminals in the UK’.

Now a detailed planning application has been submitted for the three floor building that is intended to replace the current terminal, which dates back to the 1960s. The airport is hoping to begin building work by the end of 2020 which means the new terminal could be up and running by 2023.

The application that has just been submitted to Leeds City Council describes ‘adjustments to the existing ‘airside’ apron including demolition of existing passenger pier and ancillary accommodation, earthworks and site remodelling at the existing eastern parcel of the airport apron to accommodate a new terminal building and forecourt area’. It goes on to list all of the associated building works including a new ‘meet and greet’ building and a separate inspection property.

The application - reference 20/02559/FU - also mentions ‘modifications to flight time controls to reflect current noise guidance, and to extend the daytime flight period’.
