Passengers from across the North West and North Wales will now have the opportunity to fly direct from Liverpool to summer holiday resorts along the Black Sea Coast.

We have seen a host of destinations added to the Airport’s network of flights over the past year and annual passenger numbers rise to over 5 million, with 2019 looking like another busy year for the airport.”
