British Airways’ Leeds Bradford flights will move to Terminal 5, the carrier announced last week.

According to an official press release issued on Friday, the airline will shift Leeds Bradford flights to T5 beginning on 31 March, when it will also reduce its four daily roundtrip journeys to three by combining the two midday flights.

BA’s management said that the changes will provide Leeds Bradford passengers with quicker connections to the more than 100 destinations available from its base at Terminal 5. The flights currently operate from Terminal 1, meaning that passengers making connections are required to have a layover of at least one hour.

Tony Hallwood, managing director for Leeds Bradford airport, said in a statement, “British Airways decision to transfer Leeds Bradford services into T5 will help to transform the worldwide travel plans of Yorkshire's regional businesses and leisure travellers. With a wide choice of connecting destinations now on offer from Heathrow there has never been a better time to fly locally from Yorkshire’s gateway airport.”

He went on to say, “Leeds Bradford’s new direct connection into Heathrow’s Terminal 5 will now offer a reduced transfer time of just 60 minutes and provide even quicker and easier access to British Airways' worldwide network.”

Likewise, Jim Keegan, British Airways’ customer service manager for regional operations, said, “We often take the opportunity to change flight frequencies and timings at the season boundaries and we are delighted that we are able to move the Leeds Bradford flights to T5 next summer, just three months after the route launch. It means our Yorkshire customers can enjoy a quick and seamless journey through our dedicated terminal at Heathrow.”
