The low-cost airline had some great news for the people of Leeds and Bradford earlier this week, when they announced they were going to be creating 1,000 new jobs at the Leeds Bradford International Airport.
The chief of Ryanair, Michael O’Leary, was at the airport to make the announcement himself which will bring an estimated extra million passengers a year to the airport. This has come just after the airport got the go ahead for a £28 million expansion plan of its old outdated terminal building.
There will be 14 new routes at the airport and 63 return flights each week in a massive investment of around £84 million. It will bring the total number of destinations from Leeds Bradford by Ryanair to 17. New routes will include places in France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Poland and two of the Balearic Islands.
“International airports have confirmed that for every one million passengers about 1,000 jobs are created, not in the local regions but actually at the local airport, so we will see massive investment in Leeds Bradford airport next year,” said Mr O’Leary.
To celebrate this, Ryanair have put a limited amount of £5 seats on sale for just a short while.
