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.
Businesses across the region can benefit from Ryanair’s new summer schedule from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) to Dublin.
With up to 4 return flights per day now departing from LJLA to the Irish capital, revised departure and return times enable passengers travelling between Liverpool and Dublin to do a day’s business and return home at convenient times the same day.
The start of the summer season means that business passengers can now depart from Liverpool at 08:05 and return from Dublin at 18:05 the same day.
One local business and Knowsley Chamber of Commerce member has already welcomed the summer schedule; Ventilux is one of the largest independent emergency lighting manufacturers in Europe, with their head office in Dun Laoghaire, south of Dublin and a base at Knowsley Business Park.
Barrie Walsh is the company’s Managing Director, "Travelling to Dublin from LJLA has always been really convenient for my colleagues and I, however, the launch of the summer schedule means less travel time out of the office. The summer schedule means we can still complete a full day’s business at our Head Office, but be back home in Liverpool at a far more convenient time."
Robin Tudor, Head of PR at LJLA added, "Ryanair’s summer schedule is great news for business passengers traveling to Dublin enabling them to do a day’s business and return to Liverpool at a convenient time the same day. Unlike the Beatles ‘Daytripper’, we don’t expected many ‘one way tickets’ though."
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.
