Liverpool airport witnesses 7% passenger increase

womanLiverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) continues to see record numbers of passengers fly through its doors as it adds even more services to its list.

In fact the airport has been so busy that it’s witnessed a 7% increase during Q3 of 2015 compared to the same period in 2014.

New flights added

This news comes at the same time as the Romanian Blue Air announced it will add a third destination to its portfolio from LJLA.

The airline is set to begin two flights a week to Cluj to go alongside its current flights to Bacau and Bucharest.

Flights will take off on June 6 2016, departing from the city at 17:35 on Mondays and Fridays.

Monthly passenger numbers have continued to climb month on month from February, leading the airport growth figures to increase by 7% in the first three quarters of the year, compared to the same period in 2014 – a growth that is reflective of the recent increase in business at the Liverpool airport since the addition of several new routes and airlines.

An exciting time for the airport

Meanwhile, the increase in passenger numbers is expected to continue for the remainder of 2015 as Aer Lingus commences its 16 departures every week to Dublin at the end of September, and Flybe sets to begin its daily service to Edinburgh.

Andrew Cornish, Chief Executive at LJLA, said this is a really exciting time for the airport with even more airlines recognising the opportunities to grow their business here.

Over the past year alone LJLA has secured flights from five new airlines and announced 12 new services to a total of eight destinations; leading to an additional 90 flights per week, he added.

Gheorghe Racaru, General Manager at Blue Air, commented that these new flights “represent a real success” in Blue Air’s portfolio.
