This weekend sees the start of Liverpool John Lennon Airport’s (LJLA) busiest time of the year once again, as the school holidays begin for many families from across the region.
This week, low-cost carrier Ryanair, launches six new routes linking Liverpool John Lennon Airport with even more European destinations. The seventh is departing on 3rd November to Paris Beauvais. Two of the seven are to Gdansk and Szczecin in Poland. The others include Knock, Faro, and the Canary Islands, Tenerife and Fuerteventura.
To celebrate, one of the first passengers checking-in at LJLA for the inaugural flight to Knock was presented with Champagne courtesy of Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

Whilst on their break they’re planning to visit Our Lady of Knock.
Neil Pakey, Deputy CEO of Peel Airports Group, said: “We’re pleased to announce the seven new routes from LJLA with Ryanair to a great range of destinations which will no doubt appeal to many passengers throughout the North West, especially the sunny Canary Islands for some winter sun or a trip to the Pomeranian Princes castle in Szczecin.
Ryanair’s Marketing Executive Maria Macken, said: "We are delighted to introduce these fantastic new routes from Liverpool John Lennon Airport today. There is a great demand for low cost travel in Liverpool. Why not try out our new winter sunshine destinations to the Canary Islands or maybe pop over to Poland to get that brighter than white smile!”
