LBA:REGEN kicks off

A groundbreaking ceremony has marked the start of Leeds Bradford Airport’s £100m redevelopment programme by Farrans Construction.

The privately funded £100m project, known as LBA:REGEN, will include the modernisation of the existing LBA terminal building and the addition of a 102,000 sq ft three-storey extension.

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.

Work is under way on the terminal extension, with Farrans Construction delivering phase one of the project.

This phase 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 two will include an enlarged central search and check-in areas, alongside larger duty free, retail and arrivals areas. Completion of construction work is expected to be completed in 2026.

Vincent Hodder, chief executive of Leeds Bradford Airport, said: “This groundbreaking is a significant moment in LBA’s history, representing the culmination of thousands of hours of planning, consultation and design.

“As one of Yorkshire’s most significant infrastructure projects, we and our passengers are immensely excited to see it develop in the coming months. Once complete, this project will deliver the airport that our passengers, airlines and region need and deserve.”
