In the same week that the world’s leading air travel intelligence company, OAG awarded Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) a 5-star rating for flight punctuality, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) have today published their latest report on the accessibility services provided by the top 30 UK airports with Liverpool listed in the highest ‘very good’ category.
An emergency exercise is being staged at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (JLA) Wednesday, 16th October.
The exercise is due to commence at 9am, lasting for approximately three hours and will take place in order to test and exercise procedures within the Airport’s emergency plan which is used in the event of a full scale emergency incident at the Airport.
This is a follow on from a similar exercise staged last year that centred around a simulated collision between two aircraft at the Airport and will look at procedures in place to deal with passengers who may be injured along with their families and friends who may subsequently attend the Airport too.
It is a requirement by the Civil Aviation Authority for airports such as Liverpool to regularly test its emergency procedures and this multi-agency exercise will also involve personnel from Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service, Merseyside Police, North West Regional Ambulance Service and Local Authority representatives in addition to a number of volunteers.
The Airport will however be operating ‘business as usual’ throughout the exercise and no passengers or airlines will be affected by the training taking place.
easyJet, Europe’s leading airline, has announced that a new route to Toulouse from Liverpool John Lennon for next winter is on sale today.
Liverpool John Lennon Airport has once again been awarded a 5-star rating by the world’s leading air travel intelligence company, OAG for flight punctuality. With an on-time performance of 85.4 per cent of flights running on time, the 5-star ranking represents excellent performance over a rolling 12-month period.
