Travellers setting off for some Summer Sun from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) will now be able to experience further improvements with the completion of the Airport’s £12m developments which have been ongoing for the past 18 months.

Just this week, the new Estuary Kitchen and Grill opened in the departure lounge, following hot on the heels of the opening of a new Starbucks coffee outlet close to the Airport Information Desk and the addition of famous high street sportswear giant JD Sports’ new outlet in the departure lounge.

The Estuary Kitchen and Grill is the largest food retail area at the airport and replaces the previous passenger catering facility which had remained largely unchanged in over 10 years. Operated by food travel experts SSP, the new food retail area now covers 90sq m with a vibrant, fresh and contemporary feel offering passengers the very best choice of freshly-prepared meals, drinks and snacks using locally sourced ingredients wherever possible.

Almost £1m has been invested in these latest improvements which have also seen the creation of over 40 new jobs and the Airport are recommending passengers arrive in plenty of time to take advantage of the improved choice in facilities following the completion of these latest developments.

Matthew Thomas, Commercial Director of Peel Airports commented, "We’ve been working flat out to complete these developments to ensure that our passengers can enjoy these latest improvements during our busiest time of the year.

"Whilst the choice of catering has been improving steadily in recent years, these new food and beverage facilities also help to raise the quality of both the food and the eating environment, in areas that haven’t seen improvements for some time. The passenger reaction both to these latest changes and the work that commenced 18 months ago, has been very positive and demonstrates our commitment to offer passengers some of the best facilities available."
