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 7.5% in May – the fourth consecutive year on year monthly increase in passenger throughput.
Passenger figures for the first five months of 2015 are now over 5% higher than for the same period in 2014 and reflect the recent upsurge in business at the Airport.
May’s figures follow previous encouraging monthly increases and follow on from a number of recent new route announcements which are expected to help the growth in passenger numbers continue throughout 2015. These include Flybe flights to Amsterdam with onward worldwide connections starting in September and Aer Lingus flights to Dublin with onward US connections starting in October.
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.
