Leeds Bradford route is five years old

Manx2.com and Leeds Bradford International Airport are celebrating as they toast the fifth anniversary of flights between Leeds and the Isle of Man.

Today (Friday) all passengers flying from Leeds to the Island enjoyed extra special treatment, with complimentary passes to the Yorkshire Executive club lounge at the airport.

They also got to share a birthday cake, presented by Commercial & Aviation Development director, Tony Hallwood, to Manx2.com crew and their handling agents.

Chairman of Manx2.com Noel Hayes said: 'The route from Leeds Bradford Airport has been an important connection since it was introduced, carrying over 50,000 passengers since 2006'.
