Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) is gearing up for the expected influx of horse racing fans as they fly to LJLA on their way to the three day Crabbie’s Grand National at Aintree Racecourse, which culminates in the world famous steeplechase on Saturday.

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 John Lennon Airport commented, “We would like to welcome all of this year’s thousands of arriving race-goers expected to pass through the Airport 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.”
