LJLA Sees Two Percent May Passenger Rise

Passenger numbers at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) rose by two percent in May compared to 2018, with almost 480,000 passengers passing through the Airport – 10,000 more than in the previous year.

Last month saw Blue Islands commence its new twice weekly Guernsey service from the Airport as well as the additional traffic generated by Liverpool fans heading off early to Madrid and other Spanish destinations ahead of the Champions League Final.

In addition to the new Guernsey service, Ryanair has now commenced its new summer services to Copenhagen and Corfu, with more new routes still to come. Wizz Air’s three times weekly service to Varna in Bulgaria starts next month and Lauda’s twice weekly Vienna service is due to start at the end of October.

Paul Winfield, director of aviation development, LJLA commented, “We are delighted after reaching 5.1 million passengers during 2018, to continue our growth to date during this year.”
