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.
Following the lifting of UK airspace restrictions at 10:00pm last night, a number of flights are now operating again through Liverpool John Lennon Airport for the first time in 6 days.
A number of easyJet departures and arrivals have already taken place this morning, with some flights from Wizz Air, Flybe and Eastern Airways expected to operate this afternoon. Ryanair will now recommence their services from early tomorrow morning and KLM are also expected to operate their services tomorrow too.
However, passengers due to travel should only come to the Airport once the departure of their flight has been confirmed by their airline. Passengers are strongly advised to contact their airline for the latest information regarding particular flights.
The Airport advises that those passengers whose flights are subsequently confirmed, arrive 2–3 hours before their departure, in order to allow plenty of time to pass through the airport due to the large numbers of passengers who may be travelling.
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.
