With only 4 million passengers visiting each year, Leeds Bradford is one of the smallest international airports in the UK. Many people arrive by car and, as there are far fewer spaces than other airports in Britain, it can be just as hard to find parking as it would be at Heathrow or Manchester. To make sure you choose the package that’s right for you, JetParks have created this helpful guide full of useful parking tips and tricks.
Pick-up & Drop-off at Leeds Bradford Airport
If you’re visiting to pick-up and drop-off, you can use two different services at Leeds Bradford Airport - the Express Carpark and the Whitehouse Lane One Hour Parking Zone. The Express Carpark is the closest parking to the main terminal, making it an ideal spot for both dropping-off and picking-up passengers. However, the Express Carpark can be very expensive if you stay for longer than ten minutes, so there is also the Whitehouse Lane One Hour Parking Zone where you can stay for up to an hour for free. If you are planning on spending longer than an hour at the airport you should book short or long-stay parking.

Leeds Bradford Airport Short-stay Parking
There’s a large short-stay parking area at Leeds Bradford Airport that is both secure and within walking distance of the terminal. The carpark can often be busy so it’s recommended that you book a space in advance. The Short-stay parking area caters to visitors for up to 24 hours, if you’re planning to stay for longer you can book long-stay parking.
The long-stay carpark at Leeds airport is located to the east of the airport, making it the furthest from the terminal entrance. The carpark is regularly patrolled by security and plays host to regular shuttle buses to and from the terminal. You can book a space in long-stay parking for several weeks at a time so it’s ideal if you are jet-setting around the globe.
Indulge in VIP treatment by booking Leeds Bradford Airport’s Meet & Greet Parking service. Simply, meet with a professional valet on the day of your flight who will take your car and store it in a secure carpark. Then when you are leaving the terminal you can call the valet and they will meet you by the exit with your vehicle.
The Main Terminal at Leeds Bradford is the only terminal at the airport so there’s no need to worry about which carparks are right for your flight. All carparks have good travel links to and from the Main Terminal.
Hotels at Leeds Bradford Airport
If you want to avoid traffic by getting to the airport the day before and staying over, you can book into the Premier Inn off the A658 close to the airport. This is a great way to be sure that you will make your flight if you’re feeling a little nervous about getting to the airport on time.
Helpful Hints for Visiting Leeds Bradford Airport
Make Use of The Free One Hour Parking Zone: Be sure to use the free one-hour parking at Whitehouse Lane as it’s rare to get such a service so close to a main terminal.
Check for Traffic: Due to traffic from both the cities of Leeds and Bradford, it can be difficult getting to and from the airport in the mornings. Make sure you have plenty of time to travel and check local traffic reports to avoid major disruptions.
