Leeds Bradford Airport to benefit from bank holidaysAround 150,000 passengers are set to fly from Leeds Bradford Airport over the next two weeks, with the hub being boosted by the upcoming bank holidays and royal wedding.

The airport said that top spots which Yorkshire travellers are looking to visit include Tenerife, Majorca, Brussels, Amsterdam and Rome.

Tony Hallwood, commercial director at Leeds Bradford Airport, said: "Thanks to a wide range of leisure destinations and popular city breaks from Yorkshire's Gateway Airport passengers will be able to celebrate Easter and the royal wedding in style."

He added that the hub is also expecting a "surge" of inbound tourists who are looking to sample "the region's famous hospitality" over Easter and the royal wedding weekend, set to take place on April 29th.

It was recently reported that more than half a million passengers will use Manchester Airport to jet away on holiday between Good Friday and May 2nd, with workers taking three days off to give them 11 away from the office during this period.
