What's the closest/most convenient airport served by CO to Bradford in the UK?

(I know there's LBA, but it is not served by CO).

Also, while we're at it, can anyone help me with the correct way to phrase the question above? Somehow I just can't come up with the proper way to ask it.  Smile

Try "What is the closest airport to Bradford that is served by CO".

I'd have to say it's probably Manchester.

IFEMaster has it right, it's MAN with twice daily CO flights.

It's roughly 50 miles away or an hour driving.

Or you could take CO into AMS, and connect into LBA with KLM

This is probably what I'll do (actually, KL MEX-AMS-LBA). Since I'm flying on a CO award, I just wanted to have other options open if there's no availability when I make my reservation.

Stop in Leeds and commute into Bradford. Whilst Leeds has its bad areas, it is much nicer.

I'd second what BA757 said.

Leeds is a much nicer city to stay in than Bradford. I'd stay there and get the train. It takes around 20 minutes IIRC, and the train station in Bradford is about 5 mins walk from the NMoPFT.

I took part in an evacuation practice there once - staged to help the emergency services incase there was ever a real emergency in the building.

Let me know if you make it, I work in Bradford so feel free to ask if you'd like any help with anything. Seems a long time ago since we chatted in Amsterdam!

Hi, David. Can't believe it's been two years already since we met in Amsterdam. Thanks for your help. My trip depends mostly on my being able to get a free air ticket. If I finally go, I'll let you know.
