Scandinavia’s largest regional airline Widerøe has today commenced flights between Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) and Bergen in Norway.
Airline Handling Agent Servisair today informed management at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) that it would be ‘business as usual’ despite the failure to resolve the industrial dispute with some of its staff based at the Airport, resulting in industrial action commencing on Thursday 20th August.
The handling agent has reassured the Airport that robust contingency plans already in place will mean that passengers flying with those airlines who use Servisair at Liverpool, will not be inconvenienced during this dispute. Talks between the GMB Union and Servisair are expected to continue to try to resolve the dispute.
Of the daily passenger throughput at LJLA, half of Airport passengers travel with airlines, including easyjet, who use alternative handling agents to Servisair and who are not involved in this dispute.
Andy Gower, Airport Director at LJLA commented, "Naturally we are disappointed that this planned industrial action appears to be going ahead, however the reassurances we have been given by the handling agent involved, means that we expect those passengers whose airline uses Servisair, to be able to get away on flights without any problems".
Wizz Air, one of Europe’s fastest growing airline groups including Wizz Air UK, today announces the launch of three new routes from Liverpool John Lennon Airport to the Romanian cities of Bucharest, Cluj and Iași.
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.
