Flights FAQ

Are night flights allowed?

Yes, Leeds Bradford Airport has been operating flights 24 hours a day since planning permission for 24 hour availability was granted in 1994. The designated night-time period is from 2300hrs to 0700hrs. During this period, only the quietest jets are permitted to operate and there are maximum permitted noise levels in place for both aircraft arrivals and departures. In addition, there are restrictions on the number of aircraft movements permitted during the summer months (May – October) and winter months (November – April). In comparison with most other UK commercial airports, Leeds Bradford Airport has some of the most stringent night-time noise restrictions.

If you wish to contact us regarding airport noise, use the noise contact form or call 0113 391 1625.
