Passenger numbers at Liverpool John Lennon Airport have increased again for the ninth consecutive month as almost 400,000 passengers chose to use the Airport in October. Passenger numbers were up 9% compared to October last year, with figures for the year to date some 6.5% higher than the same period in 2014.

Last month saw the start of two more new services from Liverpool, with Aer Lingus commencing their 16 departures per week to Dublin with onward connections to the US and Flybe commencing their latest new route – a daily service to Edinburgh.

This continued passenger growth reflects the increase in airlines and routes operating from Liverpool. Over the past 12 months, 5 new airlines have been announced, with 12 new services to 8 new destinations, bringing over 90 additional flights per week and the Airport expects increases in passenger numbers to continue next year too.

Spanish airline Vueling, commence a three times weekly scheduled service to Barcelona in March, Thomson Airways commence a new service to Palma, Majorca in May and Blue Air start a twice weekly service to Cluj in Romania in June. In addition, Ryanair plan on increasing their capacity from Liverpool in 2016 too, with the return of their service to Reus and more departures to Dublin, Kos and Rhodes compared to this year.

Andrew Cornish, CEO of Liverpool John Lennon Airport commented, “We have seen almost 230,000 more passengers choose to use the airport so far this year, taking advantage of the increased choice of airlines and range of destinations now served from here and we expect this growth to continue in 2016 too.”
