Liverpool John Lennon Airport have been advised by KLM that they will cease operating their service to Amsterdam from Liverpool, effective 31st March 2012.

In spite of good passenger numbers and improving route performance, the airline has made this decision following a review of their route network strategy in the current difficult economic climate.

Peel Airports believes that in light of the strong passenger numbers and improving route performance there remains a strong case for a service from Liverpool feeding into a hub airport to offer onward global connections. The Airport Company will therefore be making every effort to replace this service.

Passengers can of course continue to travel to Amsterdam Schiphol with easyJet on their three times daily service from Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

Craig Richmond, CEO Peel Airports commented, "We are naturally very disappointed that KLM have taken this decision, however we understand the challenging economic conditions that they and many others in the aviation industry currently operate in.

This service has also been important for the Liverpool City Region, opening up global connectivity for travel to and from the region and it is for this reason that we will pursue all alternatives as we look for a replacement service to a hub airport."
