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.
Earlier this evening a suspicious package was found at the airport. As a precautionary measure the terminal was evacuated and the Explosive Ordance Disposal Team (EOD) were called to undertake further investigation. Following this, the area was declared safe and passengers are now returning to the terminal. Operations are resuming as normal, though there may be some disruption as a result.
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.
