In the same week that the world’s leading air travel intelligence company, OAG awarded Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) a 5-star rating for flight punctuality, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) have today published their latest report on the accessibility services provided by the top 30 UK airports with Liverpool listed in the highest ‘very good’ category.
The UK’s largest airline easyJet, have commenced three new services this week from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) as part of their expansion of routes, following the arrival of their ninth aircraft to be based at the Airport.
The new £20m Airbus A320 started operating to three exciting new destinations this week: Dubrovnik on the Adriatic Sea in the south of Croatia, Naples in southern Italy and Bordeaux in south west France.
This is the first time scheduled services have operated to each of these three new destinations from Liverpool, with the airline now operating 21 services from LJLA, giving the region’s passengers access to low cost fares to an even greater choice of destinations.
Carly Brear, easyjet’s UK commercial manager, said: “Liverpool continues to be our busiest UK base outside of London, and the launch of the new aircraft shows just how much support we have from our customers here.
"We’ve listened to customer feedback and are confident our three newest routes will be a huge success, continuing to expand the choice for our customers in the North of England.”
Commenting on today’s announcement, Neil Pakey, Deputy CEO of Peel Airports said, “easyJet has been crucial to the success of Liverpool Airport over the last 12 years and will continue to be so in the future.
“The new easyJet routes will give passengers even more destinations to choose from this summer, adding Croatia to the list of countries we now serve and expanding our list of destinations in France and Italy.
“The addition of this aircraft to the Liverpool fleet also highlights the continuing importance that easyJet places on its Liverpool operation and their confidence that they have in us, despite the tough economic conditions.”
easyJet, Europe’s leading airline, has announced that a new route to Toulouse from Liverpool John Lennon for next winter is on sale today.
