Growth in passenger throughput has continued at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) throughout 2016, with latest figures for May showing 10% more passengers choosing to fly through LJLA compared to May 2015.

Over 40,000 more passengers used LJLA last month helping to boost total passenger numbers for the year to date to almost 1.9 million and over 250,000 more than during the first 5 months of 2015.

As well as the impact of a number of new services from existing airlines which started earlier in the year, May also saw Flybe’s weekly departure to Newquay commence and the start of the Thomson Airways’ summer 2016 weekly flight to Palma with passengers departing on holidays to Majorca with Thomson and First Choice for the first time in eight years. In addition, 14 extra flights chartered to take Liverpool FC fans over to Basel for the Europa League Final added to the growing numbers of Airport users.

Robin Tudor, Head of PR for Liverpool John Lennon Airport commented, “The great start to the year that we had with increased passenger numbers has continued with passenger volumes at their highest in 5 years and we remain confident that this growth will continue throughout 2016.”
