The UK’s biggest airline easyJet, today announced further growth of their existing base at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) as part of a wider expansion of services across the North West.

Since commencing operations at LJLA just over 10 years ago, easyJet now has eight aircraft based at Liverpool John Lennon Airport, offering a choice of 20 routes to main city airports across Europe and carrying around 2.5 million passengers a year. By 2010, easyJet will add 2 more aircraft to their Liverpool base to take their total to 10 and continue to grow passenger throughput at LJLA.

This latest commitment to LJLA by easyJet compliments the Airport’s latest expansion plans. LJLA launched its Draft Master Plan in 2006 to demonstrate how it intends to accommodate the forecast continued growth in airline operations and passenger numbers in future years. Following the largest public consultation undertaken by the Airport which subsequently demonstrated considerable support for these future proposals, the Airport has now completed the Master Plan which will be publicly launched in January 2008. This sets out possible future infrastructure developments to cater for the forecast 8.3 million passengers due to be using LJLA by 2015 and 12.3 million passengers by 2030.

Commenting on today’s announcement, Neil Pakey, LJLA’s Managing Director said: “This further expansion of easyJet services at Liverpool is a sign of their continued commitment to low cost air travel both here on Merseyside and across the North West. This is good news for the Airport and fits with the forecast passenger increases we expect to see here at Liverpool in future years, which the new Airport Master Plan takes account of.”
