Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) is today beginning a 12 week consultation as part of the modernisation of the UK’s airspace, which will involve potential changes to the routes taken by aircraft departing from and arriving at the Airport.
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. Amanda King and her daughter Charlotte from Warrington, took advantage of the low-cost fares and chose to fly from Liverpool to Knock for a short break. 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!”
Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) is gearing up once again for the traditional Christmas and New Year ‘getaway’, with approximately 150,000 passengers expected to pass through the Airport over the festive and New Year holiday period.
easyJet, Europe’s leading airline, has announced it will launch a new route from Liverpool to Antalya in Turkey which will become the 33rd destination on easyJet’s Liverpool network.
