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 recorded passengers numbers of 322,998 passengers for the month of March, a rise of 8% on March 2014.
Traffic was boosted by additional capacity from Flybe, Wizz Air and Blue Air with incremental flights to Belfast City, Warsaw (WAW), Gdansk and Bucharest.
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.
