As the school holidays get under way, Liverpool John Lennon Airport, is expecting its busiest summer ever!
The busiest in fact, for five years!
The airport has secured many new destinations and capacity on routes this year, and the influx in local travellers wishing to fly from their local airport has seen passenger numbers increase month on month at LJLA.
This weekend alone, 24,000 passengers are expected to fly out of the airport – which equates to a 13% rise from the same time last year.
Mediterranean summer hot spots are the most popular – 15 Mediterranean destinations are on offer, along with four Canary Islands to meet with deman – as three quarters of a million passengers head off over the six week peak summer holiday period.
Robin Tudor, Head of PR at LJLA commented, “This is expected to be one of our busiest weekends of the year so far and it is likely to remain busy throughout the next 6 weeks, as the region’s holidaymakers choose to take advantage of the Airport’s convenient, hassle free environment and the many great value for money direct flights from here.”
In light of the busy period ahead, the airport is reminding passengers to leave extra time to navigate their way through check in and boarding, and are reminded to adhere to the strict security measures in place, which will speed up security queues.
Mr Tudor added, “Whilst queue times at the Airport are some of the shortest around, we do advise that passengers should allow plenty of time to pass through the Airport at this particularly busy time as well as leaving plenty of time for their journey to the Airport too.”
