LEEDS/BRADFORD Airport has started work on a £5.75m new arrivals hall.
The extension to the terminal is due to open by October 2000.
Additional food outlets, shops and airport offices will be installed in the new facility, along with improved domestic and international baggage and immigration areas. The new arrivals area will double the size of the terminal building, allowing the airport to handle a projected 2.5m passengers within the next few years.
Leeds/Bradford's board of director's chairman Councillor Tony Cairns said the end of work next year will mean the airport has renewed all its facilities in just four years.
Macdonald Hotels is also building a new 200-room £14m property at the airport.
The new airport property, which will have conference facilities, is due to open at the end of next year.
During the work on the terminal and hotel the airport will operate as usual.
