Lufthansa’s new service to Frankfurt takes off from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, bringing the return of global connectivity for the city for the first time in over 10 years.
Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) is to pilot what it believes is the world’s first airport ‘webinar’ next Tuesday, 30th March with the Airport discussing its latest development plans and talking to KLM senior management about their Liverpool operation, live to viewers across the world, via an internet broadcast. Viewers will be able to participate through an email questions and answers session.
Due to commence at 3:00pm, Neil Pakey, Deputy CEO of the Peel Airports Group will be hosting the one hour session, talking first to the Group’s Director of Facilities, Steve Gill who will be presenting the first public showing of an animation ‘fly through’ of the improved retail project, along with a new and improved security project, which at over 3 times its present size, is again designed to improve the customer experience.
At 3:30pm, Neil will be joined by Henri Hourcade, KLM’s General Manager UK and Ireland who will be discussing the airline’s first year of operations from Liverpool, and why KLM are now introducing a fourth daily flight which will open up even more worldwide connections via their Amsterdam Schiphol hub.
Neil Pakey commented, "The Airport sees this new medium as an important way to both communicate the latest airport developments to an interested audience, but also to give the public the chance to pose questions to senior personnel at the airport and within the aviation industry. Businesses, airlines, passengers, students and others with an interest in the airport are invited to register in advance and participate in the broadcast"
A new service by PLAY airlines will connect Liverpool with Reykjavík and four eastern US cities.
A £2m investment is now underway to introduce new passenger facilities that will also create a further 200 jobs at the airport.
