Directions to Liverpool John Lennon Airport

Liverpool John Lennon Airport is conveniently located close to key North West networks such as the M57, M62 and M56. It is also not far from the A1, M6 or M1 which enable passengers in Lancashire, Yorkshire, Derbyshire, the Midlands and the north east to access the airport.

For Sat-Nav users, the postcode to use for Liverpool John Lennon Airport is L24 1YD. However, the airport is very well signposted and drivers should follow the road signage to access the car parks and drop off areas.

To ensure you have plenty of time to reach the airport, drivers are encouraged to check their flight status, as well as the latest traffic and travel news before setting off on the journey to the airport.

Travelling from the North / North-East

Travel on the M6 southbound to junction 21A with M62. Please note that junction 21A is a split junction, and motorists should ensure they come off at the slip road signposted Liverpool. Follow M62 West until junction 6, and then take the roundabout's 2nd exit onto the A5300 (Knowsley Expressway). At the end of the Knowsley Expressway, turn right at the roundabout, and merge onto the A561 (Speke Boulevard). Follow the A561 until the junction with Speke Hall Avenue, and then turn left, following signs to the airport.

Travelling from the South / East

There are two options when travelling from the south or east - either exiting the M6 at junction 20 and merging onto the M56, or exiting the M6 at junction 21A and following directions as from the North/North-East.

Exit the M6 at junction 20 and merge with the M56. Follow M56 to junction 12 onto A557/A562 dual carriageway via Runcorn Bridge to merge with A561 (Speke Boulevard). Follow signs to the Airport, situated off Speke Hall Avenue.

Mersey Gateway Bridge and Merseyflow Tolling System - Please note that there is a new bridge currently under construction across the River Mersey, and as such, the area may be regularly subject to roadworks and diversions. The new Mersey Gateway Bridge is due to open in Autumn 2017 and will operate a free-flowing tolling system. For more information about tolls and charges, please click here.

From Autumn 2017, once the new Mersey Gateway Bridge is open, the Silver Jubilee Bridge between Runcorn and Widnes will close for refurbishment.

Travelling from the Wirral / North Wales

Passengers travelling from Wirral may find it more convenient at peak times to use the M53 and then the M56 (as instructions from the South / East) rather than a route through the City Centre of Liverpool via the Mersey Tunnels. Passengers travelling from North Wales should join the A55 to connect with the M56 eastbound, and then follow instructions as from the East.
