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.
Central and Eastern Europe’s largest low cost airline Wizz Air, who first started operating from Liverpool in late 2004, have commenced their latest route from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) with three flights each week to Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic.
Flights operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, departing at 12:50pm, giving travellers to Prague convenient times and days of the week for short breaks or business trips.
The Capital of the Czech Republic, Prague is one of the most popular city break destinations in Europe with something on offer for everyone. The beautifully preserved historic city has stunning architecture and many famous sights such as Wenceslas Square, Prague Castle and Charles Bridge. The Czech hospitality is legendary and visitors are guaranteed a warm welcome to the trendy bars or cosy traditional restaurants. Prague is also famed for its Christmas markets which are among the best in the World and now for the first time passengers are able to travel direct from Liverpool to experience them.
Wizz Air already operate popular flights to the Polish cities of Warsaw, Katowice and Gdansk, carrying over 200,000 passengers on their Liverpool services last year and recently celebrated their fifth ‘birthday’ with passengers at LJLA.
Neil Pakey, Deputy Chief Executive of Peel Airports, commented: “This new Prague service is important for both leisure and business markets, linking the Liverpool City Region directly with yet another European capital city. At a time when many airlines across Europe are cutting back on services, Wizz Air clearly recognise the opportunities to grow their business from here.”
John Stephenson, Executive Vice President of Wizz Air said: “Prague is one of Central and Eastern Europe’s most popular destinations and as such is well connected from most of the UK’s regions. We are delighted to be the airline offering a direct connection for Liverpool to this booming cultural and economic center. We are confident that this new service will be just as popular as our existing routes from LJLA to the CEE.”
easyJet, Europe’s leading airline, has announced that a new route to Toulouse from Liverpool John Lennon for next winter is on sale today.
Liverpool John Lennon Airport has once again been awarded a 5-star rating by the world’s leading air travel intelligence company, OAG for flight punctuality. With an on-time performance of 85.4 per cent of flights running on time, the 5-star ranking represents excellent performance over a rolling 12-month period.
