Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe commenced their latest service from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) today with staff celebrating the airline’s inaugural flight to the Bulgarian Black Sea resort of Varna.
Liverpool John Lennon Airport experienced a growth in passenger numbers of 3.5% in February – the first year on year monthly increase in passengers over the past 12 months.
February proved to be busier than other months following the addition of new three times weekly flights to Bucharest with Blue Air which commenced in mid-December and three times daily flights to Belfast City which started at the beginning of February.
The school half term holidays towards the end of the month proved to be particularly busy too for the Airport, with families taking advantage of the quicker and easier access through the airport and the choice of flights to both Winter ski and sunshine destinations.
From Sunday 10 November, Widerøe is increasing the number of departures between Bergen and Liverpool to three a week.
easyJet have announced that they will add another new route to their operations from Liverpool, by operating twice weekly flights to Tenerife commencing on 30th October 2019 for the Winter 2019/20 season.
