As the aviation industry continues to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic and the Airport sees more passengers and flights once again, the Airport Company is delighted to be able to announce the latest additions to its Apprenticeship Programme by recruiting a further three apprentices.
Liverpool John Lennon Airport (JLA) is gearing up for the expected influx of horse racing fans as they fly to JLA on their way to the three day John Smith’s Grand National at the Aintree Racecourse, which culminates in the world famous steeplechase on Saturday.
To help arriving race-goers get a flavour of the unique Aintree experience, the Airport has teamed up with Aintree Racecourse, who have installed two giant stands in the Airport’s Arrivals area to showcase two of the most famous fences on the course – The Chair and Becher’s Brook. The stands show lifesize cutaways of both fences to give arriving passengers an idea of the size of the jumps that riders and horses will be facing.
Large numbers of Irish race-goers always come over for the three day Grand National event. With regular flights from Cork, Dublin, Knock and Shannon in The Republic of Ireland and from Derry in Northern Ireland, Ryanair in particular expect to be flying over thousands of race-goers once again.
Robin Tudor, Head of PR for Liverpool Airport, commented, “We’ve brought a bit of Aintree to the Airport this year for the thousands of arriving race-goers expected to pass through who will be taking advantage of the many low-cost fares, short flight times and the convenience of flying to Liverpool on their way to Aintree.”
