An increasing number of passengers will be able to fly to Leeds/Bradford Airport from the south-west of England, it has been reported.
Air Southwest, which already flies daily to Yorkshire from Plymouth, has announced it will be adding new flight routes to Leeds/Bradford Airport from the start of August in response to customer demand.
Air Southwest deputy chief executive Mike Coombes said: "We have found there is increasing demand for flights to Leeds-Bradford from Plymouth, and these additional services will give added flexibility for business and leisure travellers alike."
With more people taking holidays in Britain due to the current economic climate, Air Southwest hopes the new flights will tap into the growing domestic holiday market.
"Improved air links to the south-west are playing an important part in increasing the region’s attractiveness as a short break and holiday destination," added Mr Combes.
Leeds/Bradford Airport saw 2.9 million passengers pass through its terminals in 2007, an 88 per cent increase compared to 2000.
