The final phase of the latest development works aimed at further improving the customer experience for departing passengers at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) has now been completed.
Growth in passenger numbers continued at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) during March as passenger numbers rose by 7% compared to March 2017.
Over 390,000 passengers travelled through the Airport last month contributing to a first quarter increase in business of over 4% compared to last year. Well over 1 million passengers chose to use the Airport during the first three months of this year - over 45,000 more than in 2017 and the highest first quarter since 2011.
A combination of additional new services now operating from Liverpool and higher passenger loads on existing well established routes has helped to boost passenger numbers.
Growth is expected to continue during the year with seven new routes having already been announced from Liverpool for 2018 with Blue Air to operate new flights to Palma and Malaga, easyJet to serve Pula, Dalaman and Palermo and Ryanair to fly to Shannon and Paphos.
Paul Winfield, Director of Aviation Development for LJLA commented, “The increased choice of destinations and flights now available from Liverpool plus the completion of our various terminal improvement works is continuing to pay off for the Airport and the companies based here.
Passengers appreciate our faster, easier, friendlier approach to the beginning of their journey, be they traveling for leisure or on business and we expect to see further growth in numbers as more new routes begin throughout the year.”
Scandinavia’s largest regional airline Widerøe has today announced that it is to start operating a twice weekly service between Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) and Bergen in Norway.
Blue Air’s newest flights from Liverpool to Malaga and Majorca take off for the first time next week. These two routes were announced late last year as part of the airline’s 2017 network expansion program which ended the year with 34 new route announcements.
