A 10% growth in passenger numbers has been recorded at Liverpool John Lennon Airport for May.
The bumper month saw more than 40,000 extra passengers use the airport this May compared to the same month last year. This equates to a total number of passengers using LJLA this year to soar to nearly 1.9 million.
Many factors have contributed to the rise in passengers – for example, the airline has been attracting many new services, including a new summer 2016 Thomson Airways flight to Palma, along with new flights to Majorca with Thomson and First Choice. Plus, Flybe’s new weekly service to Newquay has proved a success.
What’s more, 14 extra flights were chartered to take Liverpool FC fans to Basel for the Europa League Final.
Speaking about the growth, Head of PR for Liverpool John Lennon Airport Robin Tudor, said, “The great start to the year that we had with increased passenger numbers has continued with passenger volumes at their highest in 5 years and we remain confident that this growth will continue throughout 2016.”
