History
Opened as Leeds and Bradford Municipal Aerodrome (Yeadon Aerodrome) in 1931, and operated by Yorkshire Aeroplane Club on behalf of Leeds and Bradford Corporations. The aerodrome was expanded in 1935.

Civil aviation ceased in 1939 and Avro built a factory to the north of the aerodrome to produce the Lancaster bomber, Bristol Blenheim, Anson, York, and the Lincoln. Two runways were built as well as taxiways, and extra hangars. The site became important for military aircraft testing.

It became a civilian airport in 1947 and gained an Aero Club. In 1953, Yeadon Aviation Ltd was formed to run the airport and Aero Club. A new runway opened in 1965 and the terminal building was destroyed by fire but replaced in 1968. By 1984, the runway was extended, a tunnel built to take the A658 under the runway, and the terminal building redeveloped. Transatlantic flights could now take place.

Work on the terminal building has been taking place since 1996 making it significantly larger with more facilities. From 2000, the airport has been the base for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. In 2005, the original runway was closed and redeveloped as a taxiway and extra apron space. In-depth plans were announced to expand the airport terminal in 2008.
