Leeds Bradford airport recommends that passengers arrive at the terminal two to three hours before their flight. This is only a guide though - you should also check with your airline and see what they say. Some airlines may allow you to check in online before you get to the airport, so you only have to drop your hold luggage at the bag drop before heading to security.
Different airlines have different policies on the amount of hand luggage they allow, so youll need to check. All hand luggage will be screened at the airport and one important thing to remember is that youre not allowed any liquids, gels or pastes over 100ml theyll need to go in your hold luggage. And any liquids in your hand luggage must be taken through security in a transparent, resealable 20cm x 20cm plastic bag.

Its not free though it costs £2 for 30 minutes and £5 for an hour (prices correct on August 22, 2013). However, there is a free drop-off and pick-up zone in Long-Stay car park 1, where you can park for free for an hour. The terminal is just a five to seven-minute walk away, or theres a free bus you can catch.
