Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) is gearing up for a bumper Easter and May Day holiday period, as thousands of passengers from across the region take advantage of the extended holidays created by four Bank holidays within eleven days.

This is the first national holiday period of 2011 and is traditionally the busiest time of the year so far for the Airport, however the combination of a late Easter and the additional Bank Holiday for the Royal Wedding, means that many passengers can go away for up to 11 days, by only having to take three days off work.

As a consequence, approximately 190,000 passengers are expected to pass through the Airport over the eleven day period, with many travelling on the popular low cost flights available from Liverpool John Lennon Airport to a range of sunshine and City break destinations.

This year, the Airport will feature direct flights to over 80 destinations across 22 countries with airlines such as easyjet, Ryanair, Flybe, Wizz Air and Eastern Airways. In addition, KLM are offering flights to hundreds of destinations across the world from Liverpool, with onward connections via Amsterdam Schiphol.

This year new services have already commenced to Brussels, Gibraltar, Toulon, Kos and Rhodes, with flights to Tallinn in Estonia commencing during the Easter break.

Robin Tudor, Head of PR for Peel Airports commented, "With some schools on holiday for the past two weeks and now many more off for the next two weeks, we’ll have had four weeks of higher than usual volumes of passengers passing through JLA by the beginning of next month.
