Ryanair today unveiled their Summer 2011 flying programme from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) and at a time when the low fares airline is cutting back on business at most other UK airports, the volume of Ryanair traffic through Liverpool is due to remain similar to last year’s.

Changes to the airline’s operation will see a reduction in the overall number of destinations served but an increase in frequency on the most popular routes, giving the region’s holidaymakers a greater choice of flights to those destinations with the most demand.

In particular, the airline’s Summer 2011 schedule will focus on traditional Summer sun destinations ideal for families.


One new addition to Ryanair’s Liverpool network will include Toulon in the South of France. This is just 45 minutes from Marseille and just over an hour from the glitz and glamour of St Tropez on the Cote d’Azur and is likely to prove popular for holidaymakers also looking for convenient flights to Provence.

Nick Smillie, Aviation Sales Director for Peel Airports commented, ”In the current economic climate, to be able to retain existing levels of business from airlines’s such as Ryanair who are cutting back by as much as 20% of their operations elsewhere in the UK, is quite an achievement.

Ryanair’s programme from here will concentrate on popular, traditional, Mediterannean destinations giving those looking for great low cost, family summer sun holidays, far greater opportunities than in previous years.”
