We compare prices from hundreds of airlines so you can find the best deal for you.
Book flights to Italy’s oh-so-cool northern powerhouse and spend a few days cooing over fine art, shouting at the football, mmm-ing over fine food and longing for the very latest lines in high fashion. Welcome to Milan, where real life and the high life come together in true style.
There are plenty of indirect, cheap flights to Milan from Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA), but there are currently no providers of direct services between the two cities. This means that the average journey time for connecting flights is four hours.
Low-cost direct flights to Milan are available from Manchester Airport (MAN), which is just 75 minutes by road from Leeds Bradford Airport. With an average flight time of two hours and 15 minutes and cheap fares with Ryanair, easyJet and Flybe, you could make up the time and cost of travelling from Manchester compared with flying indirect from Leeds.
Leeds Bradford Airport is located to the north of these two Yorkshire cities, making it a popular getaway for passengers from across the north of England. Some 3-3.5 million passengers pass through the terminal building each year.
Getting to the airport is easy, with good access to the motorway network of the north of England and a range of public transportation options.
Buses and coaches arrive regularly, while the Flying Tiger bus service delivers rail passengers who book tickets to Leeds, Bradford or Harrogate railways stations.
Car parking at Leeds Airport is plentiful. Use TravelSupermarket to compare deals and pre-book parking, which will save you money on the drive-up price.
Facilities at the airport are good, with the usual collection of cafes, restaurants, bars and high-street shops. The Yorkshire Premier Lounge offers a touch of pre-flight indulgence with complimentary food and drinks amid relaxed and comfortable surroundings.

Flights to Milan arrive at one of three airports serving the city: Milan Malpensa (MXP), the main international airport; Milan Linate (LIN); and Milan Bergamo (BGY), also known as Orio al Serio, which is further from the city and popular with low-cost carriers.

Book flights from Leeds to Milan and prepare to have any preconceptions blown away. With the unflinching vibes of a working city and a daunting sprawl that could give you a headache, Milan, at first look, is not for everyone. Persist, however, and you’ll discover that it really is a place for all, whether you go weak at the knees for artistic greats, boutique shopping, Italian food, football or divine architecture.
Must-sees include the stunning Duomo, at the heart of Milan’s tourism scene (in every sense), Da Vinci’s ‘The Last Supper’, and the designer shops of Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. Must-dos include opera at La Scala, a match or tour at the San Siro, and a night on the Milanese tiles, whether that means chic designer bars in swanky hotels, unpretentious café-bars down by the canals in the Navigli district, or hot and rocking nightclubs.
