Dutch delight for Leeds Bradford Airport

Yorkshire business travellers are set to receive a welcome boost as KLM significantly increases its capacity from Leeds Bradford Airport to Amsterdam.

As of 16 May, KLM is introducing a fourth additional weekday service from Leeds Bradford to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, providing an extra 25,800 seats.

The increase in frequency is a direct result of strong passenger growth on the Leeds Bradford to Amsterdam route this year and the delivery of record load factors.

Both the regional business and tourism communities have welcomed the announcement which will provide greater access to markets across the globe.

Tony Hallwood, Leeds Bradford Airport’s aviation development director, said: “Leeds Bradford welcomes KLM’s decision to increase flight frequency to Amsterdam.

"The increase will further support our regional businesses in gaining quicker and easier access to a wider number of international destinations and key markets.”

Better connections to destinations in the Far East and South Africa in particular have now been made easier flying with KLM via Amsterdam.

Point to point business travellers can also benefit from the convenient flight schedule out of Leeds Bradford which enables them to conduct a full day’s business in the Netherlands.
