Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe have today announced another new route from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA), with flights to commence next Summer to the Bulgarian Black Sea resort of Varna.
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.
The Government should champion investment in regional infrastructure to support economic growth and help eradicate the north-south divide, according to a new report published today.
Passenger numbers at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) continue to grow at the start of the winter season, with a rise of 5% in October compared to October 2017, with many passengers and families taking advantage of the choice of flights to some great overseas destinations during the school half term.
