Getting to Leeds Airport from York, no car

My family of four (2 adults, 2 small children) and my two in-laws will be spending two nights in York in May. We want to get from York (haven't chosen a hotel yet, but it will be centrally located) to the Leeds airport, as we will be flying to Malaga, Spain on May 20.

What way would you recommend getting to the Leeds airport from York? What method do most tourists use (bus, train, taxi)?

By the way, looking at the two airlines we can choose from that fly from Leeds to Malaga (RyanAir and Jet2), it appears we'll be flying out in the morning. RyanAir is cheapest and leaves at 9:35 am. Would a taxi be our only option that early in the day?

Hi,

There are trains from York to Leeds and then a bus from Leeds station to the airport which would ensure you would arrive in time for a 9.35am flight (allowing 2 hours prior to flying for check-in etc). They leave York at approx 6am and cost £14.60 (at present) per adult. If your children are over 5 years old they will also have to pay so it is probably less hassle and cheaper to take a taxi.

Most taxi companies will pre-book a 6 seater car for airport journeys if you request this. Approximate cost from York city centre straight to the airport is £60. Try contacting www.streamlinetaxisyork.co.uk for a quote.

Even if just four adults then a taxi is competitive in time, ease of travel and cost. Try Fleetways http://www.fleetways.co.uk/ a very reliable firm.
