Ryanair announce new route to Zadar in Croatia to Liverpool.
A recent report published by well respected aviation industry consultants RDC Aviation looking at passenger throughput across UK airports in 2010, shows that despite a challenging year, Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) remains tenth in a league table of UK airports in terms of passenger throughput.
The report also revealed that of 50 airports across the UK, LJLA was only one of nine to experience growth in 2010, with a 3% year on year increase.
The report highlights that Liverpool’s position improves further when comparing purely scheduled passenger traffic across the UK, with airlines such as easyjet, Ryanair, KLM, Wizz Air, Eastern Airways and Flybe helping LJLA become the UK’s eighth busiest airport for scheduled passengers.
LJLA handled over 5 million passengers in 2010. In particular, a full year of KLM flights helped to boost passenger numbers with the region’s travelers having the opportunity to travel on long haul services from Liverpool via the airline’s Amsterdam Schiphol hub. Ryanair grew their business from Liverpool by 9% during the year.
Wizz Air have announced two new routes from Liverpool.
easyJet’s newest route from Liverpool started this morning with passengers jetting off on the airline’s inaugural flight to Antalya in Turkey.
