Everyone is eagerly awaiting the publication of the Masterplan from Bidgepoint! Maybe this is the reason for the lull.

It is due anytime soon I believe but whether it will say anything, when it is eventually published, is anyone's guess. We live in hope if not expectation.

We might hear something about the long awaited LeedsBradford Airport Masterplan within the next few days as I understand there has been a extraordinary meeting of the "Airports Consultative Committee" called for tomorrow, February 23rd.
The purpose of which is to go through the Masterplan and Surface Access Strategy before its released for public consultation.

Masterplan

Oh boy here we go again. Leeds Approach with the move to Leeds East. Interesting how LBA has lost 1000ft of runway since I last looked and has somehow gained in height above sea level. Never mind as we have loads of spare cash we can develop Church Fenton and shut LBA as there's no point in having a non ideal airport with a short runway (CF is shorter) right between two large conurbations.Luton springs to mind...

Yet most airlines consistently choose LBA over other airports in the region, so the poor weather record some seem intent on holding onto is null and void.

The runway doesn't need extending as there isn't the demand to do so, simply because MAN swallows up most of the North. The 'massive' Yorkshire and Humber catchment area isn't actually that massive, it generates less than 10 million air passengers per year. Those are already catered for at neighbouring airports, and the leakage to bigger airports will never be plugged, even with a modern, well equipped purpose built facility. Politically that would never happen anyway, wity the Leeds City Region being well within a 40 mile radius of DSA.

What Bridgepoint have released is a realistic appraisal of where the airport is heading. Should demand require further expansion then it will happen. There is no conspiracy, just realistic expectations for growth over the coming few years.

Me thinks that 6400ft refers to the 'useable' distances rather than the length of the concrete!

Declared distances for take-off, landing, emergency etc often bear little resemblance to the physical dimensions of a runway. Granted the runway 14 Take off distance [as opposed to the Take-off run] far exceeds 6400ft, but its about right for the remainder of the LBA declared distances.

Perhaps the 700ft airfield elevation is a euphemism for a long way up [especially when the cloud base is down at Pool]!

Well we need to wait and see what the consultation brings but LBA saying they want road and rail links is a bit like Leeds and Bradford City Councils saying they want a new taxiway at the southern end and a new terminal building. It's easy to call for things you don't have to pay for.

Forgive me but wasn't it part of the agreement when the council's sold the airport to Bridgepoint that part of the money they received from the sale would be used to improve access to the airport?

I`m sure you are right and probably the Council did intend that at the time.However there have been important (for them) elections to fight and so the temptation to waste the money on `more important projects`is usually what wins the day. Or have I misunderstood how Councils work for all these years?
