Getting To Leeds Bradford Airport
The airport is roughly 7 miles northwest of Leeds City Centre. This proximity means that there are great road links between the two. If you’re driving with sat nav in your car, the postcode to use is LS19 7TU. Coming from the north and south you will find yourself on the A658, which runs through the airport quite literally. If you’re driving up from the south you’ll actually be going under the runway to get to the airport terminal. If you’re dropping someone off at the airport or picking them up, there is a free one hour parking zone which is only a short walk from the terminal building on Whitehouse Lane.
There is no direct rail link to the terminal, so if you’re travelling via Leeds, Bradford or Harrogate train stations, you’ll be pleased to know there are bus routes to the airport with Flying Tiger Buses, which include the 737, 747 and 757.
At The Airport
After check-in, the airport has you covered for all travel essentials with CARGO, World Duty Free, WHSmith, Superdrug and Travelex making sure you have everything from the right sun cream to the right currency (Malta uses the Euro) before you take off.
It’s very much a staple menu in departures if you’re looking for something to eat. Burger King, The Saltire Bar, Camden Food Company and Sports Bar all have the usual offerings to suit any appetite.
If you are a smoker, there is a dedicated smoking area in ground floor departures just by Gate 5.

When You Arrive
Once your flight has landed, it’s a very quick trip through passport control and the baggage carousel before you’re ready to really take in all Malta has to offer. Getting to your destination is incredibly easy. If you have not got a Chevron pre-booked transfer, there are dedicated public routes that can take you to all corners of the island if you want to delve in to Malta’s cultural heritage, shuttle buses that go direct to resorts and 24 hour availability on taxis, which have fixed fares depending on where you’re going.
