Leeds Bradford Airport transforms operations with Mobile Tornado’s PTToC Solution

Leeds Bradford Airport


Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA), Yorkshire’s largest airport, is situated in Yeadon, West Yorkshire, just seven miles from Leeds city centre. With a continuous increase in passenger numbers, LBA aims to provide a superior travel experience while prioritising passenger safety. The airport has made significant investments in both personnel and technology to achieve these goals.


To enhance safety, efficiency and productivity in their complex day-to-day operations, Leeds Bradford Airport chose to upgrade its existing two-way radio system to Mobile Tornado’s cutting-edge Push-to-Talk over Cellular (PTToC) solution.

This innovative technology allows for instant communication between individuals and groups across the entire airport. Additionally, Mobile Tornado’s dispatch console serves as a centralised command and control centre, facilitating the management of airport employees. The console enables location monitoring, employee tracking, and SOS emergency alerts, ensuring the well-being of staff members.

By adopting Mobile Tornado’s PTToC platform, LBA became one of the pioneering airports in Europe to transition from traditional two-way radios to this advanced cellular-based communication system.

The contract with Leeds Bradford Airport was won by Storm, a key reseller of Mobile Tornado’s technologies.


With Mobile Tornado’s world-leading technologies, Leeds Bradford Airport is successfully managing its operations and achieving its business objectives.

Damian Ives, the Chief Operating Officer at LBA, expressed his satisfaction, stating, “The collaboration with the Mobile Tornado team throughout the implementation of the new technology was exceptional. They were fantastic to work with and provided unwavering support at every stage of the introduction of the new technology. Our employees have embraced the solution which is highly intuitive and user-friendly.”

“Mobile Tornado’s world-leading technologies are helping us to manage our operations and achieve our business objectives. It is already delivering notable improvements in operational efficiencies and productivity.”

By implementing Mobile Tornado’s PTToC solution, Leeds Bradford Airport has positioned itself at the forefront of airport communication technology, ensuring passenger safety and providing a seamless travel experience for its growing number of passengers.
