Leeds Bradford Airport reveal air travel's 'new normal'

As flights restart, the airport have released a video showing their new safety measures.

Leeds Bradford Airport have revealed the new safety measures that are now in place for passengers flying from there during the coronavirus pandemic.

Bosses have released a video showing the various steps from arriving at the airport to boarding the plane.

Flights have recently restarted from Leeds Bradford, with Ryanair the first to take off.

Eastern Airways will be flying again in the next few days, and other airlines will follow in the coming weeks.



When passengers arrive at the airport, the first difference they'll notice is a new 'preparation zone' set up outside the terminal building, where they'll put on the required face coverings and hand sanitiser will be available.

Check in and the usual security checks will take place as normal, but people will follow a different route through the terminal building.

There won't be a chance to pick up any duty free, as all shops, bars and restaurants are currently closed.

However, passengers will be able to get refreshments at a new, temporary take away cafe called 'Flight Bites', located in what is usually The Yorkshire Lounge.

They can then eat and drink these in the terminal while waiting for their flight, or take them on board the plane.
