Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) is expecting the first Bank Holiday weekend of the year to be particularly busy with passenger numbers set to be around 10% higher than last year as thousands of travelers from across the region jet off for Easter from Liverpool.

Easter this year coincides with the start of the summer schedules for many airlines, with new routes and increased frequencies and around 70,000 passengers are forecast to pass through the Airport between Good Friday and Easter Monday. Over 6,000 more passengers are expected compared to last year, with many taking advantage of a range of new services and additional flights to popular destinations.

The Airport predicts that the top five most popular sunshine routes this Easter are likely to be Barcelona, Malaga, Alicante, Faro and Palma as passengers take advantage of the first Bank Holiday weekend of the year and travel to the Mediterranean in search of warmer weather.  City breaks to Amsterdam, Dublin and Belfast are also expected to be popular.

Robin Tudor, Head of PR for Liverpool John Lennon Airport commented, “The region’s travelers look set to take advantage of the convenience and choice of destinations available from Liverpool over the Easter period.

This is likely to be the busiest weekend of the year so far for the Airport and even busier than last Easter with passenger numbers expected to be around 10% higher.”

It’s no surprise to see a number of Mediterranean destinations proving popular as travelers from across the region head off in search of some much needed sunshine and warmer weather from the region’s faster, easier, friendlier airport.”
