Latest passenger traffic figures for Liverpool John Lennon Airport (JLA) show that the encouraging passenger throughput seen over the New Year period continued throughout the rest of January, with total passenger numbers for the month up 5% compared to January 2013.

Ryanair, easyJet and in particular Flybe on their popular Isle of Man service, all carried more passengers for the month. This continues on from a good end to the year for the Airport, with December figures showing a 2% increase in year on year passengers.

The gloomy, wet and windy start to 2014 appears to be a factor in the increased travel patterns of the region’s passengers from JLA, with warmer destinations to the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands proving to be the most popular.

Robin Tudor, Head of PR for Liverpool John Lennon Airport commented, “It’s no surprise that low cost airlines Ryanair and easyJet with flights at great prices have been carrying more passengers to destinations with much better weather than we have seen here in the UK for some time.”

“With the school half term rapidly approaching, we are expecting this trend to continue in the coming weeks too and our range of ski destinations are also perfect for any budding Winter Olympians.”
