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.

Please note that are a number of different routes to Liverpool John Lennon Airport, some of which are tolled. Tolled routes are listed below.

Travelling from the North / North-East / 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. This route is not subject to tolls.

Travelling from the South / East

Drivers can either travel up the M6, exit the motorway at junction 21A and follow directions as from the North/North-East. Tolls are not applicable via this route.

Alternatively, drivers can exit the M6 at junction 20 and merge onto the M56. Drivers then have a choice of either using the Mersey Tunnels (tolls applicable, via the M53) or the Mersey Gateway bridge across the River Mersey. The new Mersey Gateway bridge, for which tolls are applicable, is now open and the Silver Jubilee bridge has closed for works. Please visit merseyflow.co.uk for more information.

Whichever route the driver chooses, they should then follow signage to the Airport which is situated in South Liverpool, just off Speke Hall Avenue. Please note that the Mersey Tunnels and the Mersey Gateway Bridge are subject to tolls.

Mersey Gateway Bridge and Merseyflow Tolling System - Please note that due to the construction of the new Mersey Gateway bridge, the area may be regularly subject to roadworks and diversions.

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.
