Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) is today beginning a 12 week consultation as part of the modernisation of the UK’s airspace, which will involve potential changes to the routes taken by aircraft departing from and arriving at the Airport.
A delegation from Liverpool Chamber of Commerce have set off on a Trade Mission to Boston this week, departing from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA), taking advantage of the convenient KLM service to Amsterdam with its onward connections to Boston.
Earlier this year a delegation from Boston, visited Liverpool seeking investment opportunities. Visiting delegates saw the potential in the city and invited a reciprocal visit. As a consequence, Chamber CEO, Jack Stopforth and Trade Mission Manager/Head of Client Services, Jenny Stewart are leading a delegation of Liverpool companies looking to build on the meaningful business and cultural relationships identified during the previous exchange.
Jack Stopforth explained: "We aim to help the participating companies and develop business relationships between Boston and the UK and consolidate the already existing links."
Jenny Stewart added, "It’s great to be able to travel out to the US from Liverpool John Lennon Airport and support KLM. The airline’s regular service to their Schiphol hub, means that members have the added convenience of starting their journey from closer to home.
We hope that this link will also help to encourage other companies explore business opportunities between our two great cities."
Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) is gearing up once again for the traditional Christmas and New Year ‘getaway’, with approximately 150,000 passengers expected to pass through the Airport over the festive and New Year holiday period.
easyJet, Europe’s leading airline, has announced it will launch a new route from Liverpool to Antalya in Turkey which will become the 33rd destination on easyJet’s Liverpool network. Flights will operate weekly on Wednesdays throughout the summer, providing travellers from the North West with a direct route to another popular Turkish resort, joining routes already available to Dalaman and Bodrum.
