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 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.
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.
