This weekend sees the start of Liverpool John Lennon Airport’s (LJLA) busiest time of the year once again, as the school holidays begin for many families from across the region.
Liverpool John Lennon Airport experienced a growth in passenger numbers of over 5% in April – the third consecutive year on year monthly increase in passenger throughput.
Passenger figures for the first four months of 2015 are now over 4% higher than for the same period in 2014 and reflect the recent upsurge in business at the Airport.
April’s figures follow on from a 3.5% increase in February and an 8% increase in March, compared to the same months in 2014.
The growth in passenger numbers follows the recent introduction of a number of new services, including Blue Air’s flights to Bucharest and Bacua in Romania, Flybe’s Belfast City flights, easyJet’s Zante flight and Wizz Air’s flight to the Latvian capital Riga. The volumes of passengers on existing services have increased too, with airlines reporting higher numbers of passengers on many of their routes from Liverpool compared to the same time last year.
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.
From Sunday 10 November, Widerøe is increasing the number of departures between Bergen and Liverpool to three a week.
