Leeds Airport, also known as Leeds Bradford Airport, is located just northwest of Leeds and northeast of Bradford. The airport opened its doors in 1931 as a military airfield under the name "Leeds and Bradford Municipal Aerodrome" and served as an import hub during the Second World War. Just after the war the airport was opened to civil aviation and has since seen several updates. Currently the airport receives approximately three and a half million passengers a year which is expected to rise in the upcoming years. This is also the reason why the government has made plans to expand the airport further.
