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.
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."
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.
