Growth in passenger numbers continued at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) during March as passenger numbers rose by 7% compared to March 2017.
Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, started operating its new weekly summer flights between Liverpool John Lennon Airport and Newquay Cornwall Airport on Saturday, giving travellers direct access to one of the UK’s top summer destinations.
Taking just one hour and 15 minutes, the flight cuts travel time by upwards of four hours compared to making the same journey by car – giving an extra eight hours of holiday time on a return trip. Eight hours is the equivalent to an average day’s annual leave in the UK, no small gain for those who value their time off and want to make the most of it.
And with the shortest train journeys from Liverpool to Newquay taking seven and half hours, including up to three changes, those who fly would bank an extra 11 extra hours stress-free holiday time!
One way fares are available for booking at www.flybe.com from £29.99 including taxes and charges.
Vincent Hodder, Flybe’s Chief Revenue Officer, comments: “Our new route to Newquay from Liverpool opens up a whole new part of the country to travellers who may previously have been put off by the long journey times. We have all experienced driving or taking the train at peak holiday times, often an extremely stressful experience especially for families taking a well-earned break.
“This convenient new route confirms our customer promise to be the ‘Fastest way from A to Flybe’, faster than road or rail. We look forward to welcoming all our new passengers on board this summer.”
Robin Tudor, Head of PR for Liverpool John Lennon Airport commented: “Cornwall is a beautiful part of the country but notoriously difficult to get to at the best of times, taking at least 5 hours by car and even longer by train from Liverpool.
Flybe’s flight to Cornwall Airport Newquay now means the region’s holidaymakers can be there in just over an hour saving all the hassle and able to spend more time to enjoy this popular holiday region.”
