Today, airline handling agent Servisair informed management at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) that it is ‘business as usual’ despite being unable to resolve the industrial dispute with some of its staff based at the airport.

The disputes have resulted in partial industrial action which is due to commence on Wednesday 23rd November.


Servisair has reassured the airport that there are robust contingency plans already in place that will ensure passengers flying with those airlines supported by Servisair at LJLA will not be inconvenienced during this dispute and are advised to turn up for their flights as normal, at least 2 hours prior to departure

A number of Servisair staff have continued to work despite the plans for industrial action, to ensure all travelling passengers are not affected.

Not all airlines operating from Liverpool John Lennon Airport are handled by Servisair. Of the daily passenger throughput at the Airport, approximately half of all passengers travel with easyjet, who use an alternative handling agent who is not involved in this dispute.

Paul Staples, Airport Director at Liverpool John Lennon Airport commented, “Naturally we are disappointed that this planned industrial action appears to be going ahead, however the reassurances we have been given by Servisair, means that we expect those passengers whose airline uses Servisair, to be able to fly to and from here without disruption during this dispute.”
