Lufthansa’s new service to Frankfurt takes off from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, bringing the return of global connectivity for the city for the first time in over 10 years.
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."
A new service by PLAY airlines will connect Liverpool with Reykjavík and four eastern US cities.
A £2m investment is now underway to introduce new passenger facilities that will also create a further 200 jobs at the airport.
