Lufthansa’s new service to Frankfurt takes off from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, bringing the return of global connectivity for the city for the first time in over 10 years.
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.
A new service by PLAY airlines will connect Liverpool with Reykjavík and four eastern US cities.
A £2m investment is now underway to introduce new passenger facilities that will also create a further 200 jobs at the airport.
