A new flight route will open up a direct gateway from Leeds to the Costa Brava region in Spain from April this year.
Ryanair has announced a new three-times-a-week service to Girona airport in Barcelona from Leeds Bradford Airport.
From April 1, flights will leave the city’s airport on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and will operate through the summer until October 25.
From Girona airport, sunseekers and travellers can visit popular coastal holiday resorts on the Costa Brava as well as cross over the border into France’s Languedoc-Roussillon region.
The Catalan capital of Barcelona is also about an hour away by car or train from Girona airport.
Tony Hallwood Leeds Bradford Airport’s aviation development and marketing director said: “We welcome the introduction of Ryanair’s ninth destination in Spain and expect that it will be a popular route for our Yorkshire holidaymakers.
“We also look forward to welcoming Spanish visitors to Leeds over summer.”
