Growth in passenger throughput has continued at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) during 2017, with latest figures showing that 517,000 passengers chose to fly through LJLA in August compared to the same period last year – an increase of 3% and the Airport’s highest monthly figure since August 2011.

Over 70,000 more passengers have used the Airport so far this year, with the busy August helping to boost total passenger numbers for the year to date to almost 3.4 million.

The growth comes on the back of a number of new routes added throughout 2017. Blue Air have added new scheduled services to Alicante, Milan, Larnaca and Rome, whilst other new routes include Ryanair’s services to Prague, Bari and Girona, Wizz Air’s new route to Lublin and TUI’s new service to Ibiza.

More new routes are to operate from Liverpool later in the year too, with flights due to commence to Venice and Milan Malpensa operated by easyJet and Ryanair respectively. In addition, Superbreak will also launch a dedicated charter service to Iceland, whilst Transun and Santa’s Lapland are offering increased Lapland charters later this year.

Air Service Development Director, Paul Winfield commented ”We are delighted to see continued growth at Liverpool John Lennon Airport and continue to work with existing and new operators to explore further opportunities from here.

The passenger experience remains one of our key focus areas as passengers across the North West can enjoy the ‘Faster, Easier, Friendlier environment at Liverpool John Lennon Airport.”
