This weekend sees the start of Liverpool John Lennon Airport’s (LJLA) busiest time of the year once again, as the school holidays begin for many families from across the region. Thousands of passengers are expected to jet off abroad from Liverpool for their main holiday over the coming weeks, taking advantage of the great choice of destinations available from their local airport and Liverpool’s faster, easier, friendlier customer experience.


Around 725,000 passengers are due to pass through the Airport over the next six weeks – with 6 new destinations available for Summer 2019, including Copenhagen, Corfu, Guernsey, Varna, Iasi and Paphos.


Over 33,000 passengers are due to pass through the Airport this weekend alone and the Airport believes this is likely to be one of their busiest Summers in recent years with direct flights operating to even more destinations.


Mediterranean sunshine resorts including Palma, Malaga, Alicante, Faro, Barcelona and Nice are expected to be amongst the most popular once again, with high volumes of passenger traffic also expected on city break flights to Belfast, Dublin and Amsterdam.


Airport management continue to remind travellers to allow plenty of time to pass through the Airport during peak periods, recommending that passengers arrive at the Airport at least 2 hours before their scheduled departure time.


Robin Tudor, Head of PR at LJLA commented, “As the UK’s only airport to have a 5 star rating for flight punctuality and with the vast majority of passengers passing through security in less than 10 minutes, thousands of the region’s holidaymakers are taking advantage of these benefits and choosing to start their holiday by flying from Liverpool over the next few weeks.”
