LJLA Growing Passenger Numbers

2018 was another successful year for Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) and the cause for a double celebration with the Airport’s latest passenger figures showing a milestone in passenger throughput, at the same time as having the UK’s best scheduled flight punctuality record.

5.1 million passengers chose to use Liverpool John Lennon Airport in 2018 - the highest figures seen at the Airport in seven years and an increase of three percent compared to 2017.

The Airport has seen growth in passenger numbers and services throughout 2018 with a number of new routes having started last year to a diverse mix of destinations including Bergen, Dalaman, Iasi, Palermo, Paphos, Pula, Shannon and Toulouse. LJLA now serves over 70 destinations.

LJLA has also continued to be one of the UK’s best performing airports operationally too. The Punctuality League - a report published by OAG, the world’s leading air travel Intelligence Company, shows that Liverpool had the UK’s best on time performance record in 2018, with over 84 percent of arriving and departing flights operating within 15 minutes of their scheduled arrival and departure time.

Liverpool has the seventh best record in the world when compared to airports of a similar size for scheduled flight on time performance.
