The LJLA Blogger Challenge- Connecting Liverpool to the World!

This September, we teamed up with flybe and Travelex to whisk four bloggers across to Amsterdam to take part in a series of exciting challenges in the city. But why? What was so special about this quick flight over to the Netherlands? Everything!

The bloggers boarded the flybe Bombadier Dash 8 at 6.40am on Monday 7th September and in doing so, made history. The connection we’ve made with Amsterdam Airport Schiphol gives passengers the opportunity to make use of a global connection airport, direct from Liverpool. In essence, it is a new flybe route which connects Liverpool John Lennon Airport to the world.

The flybe Bombadier Dash 8

We pride ourselves as being the faster, easier and closer airport available to our passengers and the new route to Amsterdam opens up a worldwide list of available destinations, from the Far East to Sydney in Australia.

The flight to Amsterdam is a short one too – it’s quicker to get to Amsterdam on a plane than Birmingham in a car. Not bad for central Europe! Indeed, Amsterdam is a beautiful city too, certainly more than a simple connection. If you are flying far and wide via Schiphol airport, why not factor in a stay over in Netherland’s capital? If you want to know just how easy it is to capture everything in 24 hours, check out our #LJLADam24 Blogger Challenger video, in which our lucky bloggers saw every nook and cranny – inspiring stuff!
