Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) is today beginning a 12 week consultation as part of the modernisation of the UK’s airspace, which will involve potential changes to the routes taken by aircraft departing from and arriving at the Airport.
Liverpool John Lennon Airport’s Rescue and Fire Fighting Service has been invited to participate in The Emergency Services Show 2010 later this month following the recent successful full emergency exercise it staged on the River Mersey, which used the UK’s first floating aircraft simulator.
The Emergency Services Show 2010 is held on 24th-25th November in Coventry and Show organisers are keen for the Airport to showcase its new floating aircraft simulator that was purpose built for the Airport so it could test procedures for dealing with an aircraft making a forced landing on water.
The Show, now in its fifth year, is the only event for all involved in Emergency Planning, Response and Recovery and continues to attract all involved in an emergency – from strategic planners to first responders and support organisations. Interest in LJLA’s simulator is expected to be high due to the unique training opportunities it gives those emergency services who may be involved in similar real life situations.

Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) is gearing up once again for the traditional Christmas and New Year ‘getaway’, with approximately 150,000 passengers expected to pass through the Airport over the festive and New Year holiday period.
easyJet, Europe’s leading airline, has announced it will launch a new route from Liverpool to Antalya in Turkey which will become the 33rd destination on easyJet’s Liverpool network. Flights will operate weekly on Wednesdays throughout the summer, providing travellers from the North West with a direct route to another popular Turkish resort, joining routes already available to Dalaman and Bodrum.
