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.
easyJet, the UK’s largest airline, commenced flights to Brussels from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) today. This is the airline’s first service to Brussels from the UK, providing direct access to the Capital of the European Union and has been launched as part of easyJet’s ongoing commitment to enhancing its offer for business travellers.
easyJet’s UK general manager, Paul Simmons was joined by Brian Simpson, MEP for the North West of England and Chairman of the European Parliament’s Transport Committee at LJLA to launch the new six-times-weekly (Sun-Fri) service from Liverpool to Brussels.
Paul Simmons, easyJet’s UK General Manager said, "By introducing a low-fares service to Brussels we are providing affordable access to the Capital of Europe. The launch of our first UK route to Brussels reflects our commitment to providing business travellers with the broadest choice of destinations at the lowest possible fares."
Brian Simpson, North West MEP and Chairman of the European Parliament’s Transport Committee added, "I’m delighted that easyJet is starting flights between Liverpool and Brussels, and honoured that it chose Liverpool to launch its first British based service to the EU capital. This brings Merseyside and the wider North West region closer to Europe and will allow more choice for regular travellers such as myself. The EU broke down the monopoly in the aviation market, giving customers a greater choice of airports, carriers and new routes. This move will also generate an influx of business and leisure travellers to the Belgian capital and the North West and bring much needed economic benefits. I’m sure this new route will be a great success."
Fares on easyJet’s Liverpool to Brussels route start from £23.99 (one-way, including taxes). For more information or to book visit easyJet.com
