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.
The UK’s largest airline easyJet, today announced further growth of their operations at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) as part of a wider expansion of services across the North West.
The airline will be adding 3 exciting new destinations to their Summer 2009 schedule from early June: Dubrovnik on the Adriatic Sea in the south of Croatia, Naples in southern Italy and Bordeaux in south west France.
The extra business will see the basing of an additional aircraft at Liverpool John Lennon Airport. easyJet currently has eight aircraft based at the Airport, offering a choice of flights to over 20 destinations and carried over 2 million passengers through the Airport last year.
Commenting on today’s announcement, Neil Pakey, Deputy CEO of Peel Airports commented, “This is a great way to start the New Year. 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. It’s a tremendous vote of confidence for the Airport and its future potential at what is for many in the industry proving to be an extremely difficult economic climate to operate in.”
This will be the first time we have seen scheduled services to each of these three new destinations from Liverpool, giving the region’s passengers access to low cost fares to an even greater choice of destinations”
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. Flights will operate weekly on Wednesdays throughout the summer, providing travellers from the North West with a direct route to another popular Turkish resort, joining routes already available to Dalaman and Bodrum.
