Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) has been celebrating employee long service, with a special event held at the former airport terminal building now the Crowne Plaza Hotel, to recognise and acknowledge the many years of staff commitment and dedication to the Airport’s business.

The event, hosted by famous local broadcaster and strong supporter of the Airport Pete Price, saw almost 80 employees receive a variety of awards to celebrate between 10 and 30 years or more continued service working for the Airport Company.

Staff from almost all departments across the Airport were present, with 11 employees on hand to receive awards for the longest period of service, having each worked in excess of 30 years for the company, with a cumulative 348 years of experience between them.

The Crowne Plaza Hotel was an entirely appropriate venue for the event, since a number of staff receiving long service awards started their working careers at this location when this was the operational airport in the early 1980’s.

Matthew Thomas, CEO commented, “The Airport has changed considerably in many ways over the years, with increased numbers of passengers and airline operations and the expansion in facilities. However, the one consistent has been the continued hard work and loyalty to the business shown by a considerable number of employees who have worked for the company for many years and contributed towards our success. This was our chance to say thank you to each and every one.”
