Ground breaking for Leeds Bradford Airport terminal extension

Posted on by in Weekly News

Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA) has officially marked the start of construction work on its new terminal regeneration with a ground breaking ceremony.

The privately funded £100M development, known as LBA:REGEN, will transform the existing terminal building into a modern, efficient and sustainable facility, enhancing passenger experience and supporting the region’s economic growth.

The scheme will deliver a 9,500m2 three-storey steel-framed extension to the existing terminal, alongside a significant refurbishment of the current facilities.

Passengers will benefit from the creation of additional aircraft stands, more seating, faster security, new shops and eateries, a larger baggage reclaim area and immigration hall, and improved access for passengers with restricted mobility.

Farrans Construction is currently delivering Phase One of the project, which includes the construction of a new UK Border Force immigration facility and international baggage reclaim hall, as well as expanded retail and international departure lounge facilities. Phase 2 will include an enlarged central search and check-in areas, alongside a larger duty free, retail and arrivals areas.

Working on behalf of Farrans, Elland Steel Structures is fabricating, supplying and erecting the steelwork for the project. Both phases are expected to be complete by 2026.
