Officials from the airline said that the move is designed to provide easier connections for customers using the West Yorkshire airport. Terminal 5 currently hosts British Airways flights to more than 100 destinations worldwide.

Additionally, BA said last week that it is merging its two midday Leeds Bradford flights into one lunchtime service. All changes wil go into effect beginning on 31 March.

BA’s regional customer service manager Jim Keegan said in a statement, “We often take the opportunity to change flight frequencies and timings at the season boundaries and we are delighted that we are able to move the Leeds Bradford flights to T5 next summer, just three months after the route launch. It means our Yorkshire customers can enjoy a quick and seamless journey through our dedicated terminal at Heathrow.”

Similarly, marketing director Tony Hallwood said on behalf of Leeds Bradford airport, “British Airways decision to transfer Leeds Bradford services into T5 will help to transform the worldwide travel plans of Yorkshire's regional businesses and leisure travellers. With a wide choice of connecting destinations now on offer from Heathrow there has never been a better time to fly locally from Yorkshire’s gateway airport.

He added, “Leeds Bradford’s new direct connection into Heathrow’s Terminal 5 will now offer a reduced transfer time of just 60 minutes and provide even quicker and easier access to British Airways' worldwide network.”
