Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA)

As early as 1931, flying clubs used the premises of today's Leeds Bradford Airport to carry out training flights. Four years later, the first flights to and from Leeds Bradford followed; at this point the airport was still called RAF Yeadon. At the time, the airport did not have its own customs clearance. Consequently, incoming international flights had to land first at a different British airport before continuing on to Leeds Bradford. Nevertheless, the amount of traffic through the airport increased significantly in the late 1950s. Since the length of the runway, the size of the terminal building, and the storage areas were no longer sufficient for the increasing traffic volume, the airport was expanded from 1959 onwards. After its completion, Leeds Bradford Airport was given its present name.
