The first Leeds Bradford airport arrivals took place in 1931. A few years later, flights to London, Newcastle and Edinburgh were expanded. Not much later, more destinations in the region were added. Civil aviation ceased during the Second World War. At that time it was only used for military aircraft. After the war, passenger flights resumed. In the 1970’s there was a new hype. A package holiday became popular and many flights were flown to Spain. Due to the increase in Leeds Bradford arrivals, the airport had to be expanded and renovated. The runway was extended and the terminal was enlarged and redeveloped. After all that was finished, the first Transatlantic flight arrived not much later. This one went from Leeds Bradford airport to Toronto with a Boeing 747. Since the 90’s, the airport has been continuously renovating. This has led to it growing from 1 to 4 million passengers per year.
