Leeds Bradford Airport tries to ensure their disabled passengers are able to travel as comfortably and stress free as possible. A lot has changed over time to improve and better the services available for people that need it.
If you require any assistance mentioned above, most notably a wheelchair ramp or use of the ambulift, the airport advises that you let them know at the time of the booking and bookings must be made at least 48 hours before you are due to fly.
Please also be aware that registered Assistance Dogs are of course welcome at Leeds Bradford Airport as part of the Pet Travel Scheme - make sure to inform your airline in advance if this applies to you.
Special assistance is available for passengers who need extra help in getting to the terminal. You can find blue badge holders bays in all of their car parks! It is recommended that you let the airport know when you’re booking your parking but if you’re just driving up, then worry not, they have 24/7 assistance ready too. Simply ask for assistance at one of the intercoms when going through the entrance barriers.
The closest car park to the terminal is their Pick up/ Drop Off. Blue Badge holders are entitled to an hour of parking for just £5 there. To find out more about Leeds Bradford parking, check out our airport parking page!
