Lufthansa’s new service to Frankfurt takes off from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, bringing the return of global connectivity for the city for the first time in over 10 years.
easyJet have today announced a new route from Liverpool for this Summer with a twice weekly flight to Bournemouth on the south coast, commencing in July 2021 as part of the airline’s UK Summer 2021 schedule.
Whilst international travel continues to be limited due to restrictions remaining in place, this new service will enable the region’s travellers to take advantage of a break to the south coast, with flights departing from Liverpool on Saturdays and Wednesdays from 10th July throughout the summer season until late October.
Seats go on sale today with fares starting from £22.99 one way per person including taxes and available to book now on easyJet.com. easyJet is providing more flexibility for flights than ever before through its Protection Promise, including fee-free flight changes to any date or destination up to two hours before departure.
Paul Winfield, Liverpool John Lennon Airport’s Director of Aviation Development commented, “We know many of the region’s travellers are having to look closer to home this year for a summer break, so this link to Bournemouth for the first time by easyJet will give passengers a fast and convenient way to travel to the beautiful south coast and areas such as Dorset and the New Forest.”
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager commented: “We know our customers can’t wait to be reunited with friends and family or have more opportunity to explore the UK so this new route from Liverpool should prove popular and will further strengthen our domestic network providing customers with even more choice.
“We also know it is important to our customers to be reunited with loved ones overseas so we continue to urge the UK government to add more countries to the Green list – which can be done safely - to make this possible.“
We continue to have some of the most flexible policies currently in place so customers can book with confidence and change their plans if they need to, making travel as easy as possible this summer.”
A new service by PLAY airlines will connect Liverpool with Reykjavík and four eastern US cities.
A £2m investment is now underway to introduce new passenger facilities that will also create a further 200 jobs at the airport.
