2018 was another successful year for Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) and the cause for a double celebration with the Airport’s latest passenger figures showing a milestone in passenger throughput, at the same time as having the UK’s best scheduled flight punctuality record.
Ryanair today announced a new route from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) to Szczecin in North East Poland, with a twice weekly service starting on 21st May 2010.
Szczecin is Poland’s seventh largest city and the country’s largest sea port, on the Baltic Sea and brings the number of destinations in Poland served by Ryanair from Liverpool to seven.
In recent months, there has been a resurgence of business in the Polish market and the addition of this new route to Szczecin now means that there are flights from Liverpool to nine destinations in Poland with Wizz Air also operating to three Polish cities and easyJet to one – putting JLA on level terms with London Stansted as the top UK airport for choice of destinations to Poland.
Outside of the South East, Liverpool is clearly the UK’s number one Airport for passengers travelling to and from Poland with over twice as many flights and seats available than any other UK airport outside of London.
Robin Tudor, Head of PR for the Peel Airports Group commented, "Liverpool is now by far the market leader when it comes to services to Poland outside of London, with more departures, more capacity and more destinations available to Poland than any other airport outside of the South East.
"Whilst many airports continue to see a decline in business, Ryanair’s decision to continue to explore new opportunities from here, reflects airline confidence in Liverpool."
Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) is gearing up once again for the traditional Christmas and New Year ‘getaway’, with over 140,000 passengers expected to pass through the Airport over the festive and New Year holiday period.
Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe have today announced another new route from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA), with flights to commence next Summer to the Bulgarian Black Sea resort of Varna.
