Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe have today announced another new route from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA), with flights to commence next Summer to the Bulgarian Black Sea resort of Varna.
Staff from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (JLA) and Ryanair today launched a St Patrick’s Day themed project for Year 2 pupils at nearby St Christopher’s Primary School in Speke.
The Irish low fares airline is one of the largest operators at JLA, with flights to over 30 destinations including Dublin, Shannon, Cork, Knock and Derry and offered to work with a local school to assist with the Airport’s education links.
With tomorrow being St Patrick’s Day, Ryanair have set the Year 2 pupils at St Christopher’s School, who are all aged between 6-7 years, the task of studying St Patrick and how he became the Patron Saint of Ireland. Those pupils completing the best projects will be rewarded by the Airport and Ryanair in the coming weeks with a VIP ‘behind the scenes’ visit to JLA and to look around one of the airline’s new Boeing 737 jet aircraft based there.
Ryanair’s Maria Macken commented, "St Patrick’s Day is celebrated the world over, but not everyone knows why. As one of Liverpool John Lennon Airport’s biggest airlines with 5 Irish routes from Liverpool we thought it would be great to work with the airport and a local school to encourage pupils to find out more about our Patron Saint."
Robin Tudor, Head of PR for JLA’s owners Peel Airports added, "As one of our closest schools, St Christopher’s and their pupils have helped out with various projects related to the airport over the years. Pupils of all ages have always completed some tremendous work and I’m sure once again that Ryanair will have a difficult time choosing the best project."
The Government should champion investment in regional infrastructure to support economic growth and help eradicate the north-south divide, according to a new report published today.
Passenger numbers at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) continue to grow at the start of the winter season, with a rise of 5% in October compared to October 2017, with many passengers and families taking advantage of the choice of flights to some great overseas destinations during the school half term.
