Liverpool Airport predicts 70k passenger figure for Bank Hol weekend
Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) is set for a bumper Bank Holiday weekend, with passenger numbers expected to be up 10% against 2017’s figures.
LJLA is due to serve around 70,000 people between Good Friday and Easter Monday – over 6,000 more than last year.
The Easter weekend has coincided with the start of the summer schedule for many airlines this year, LJLA said.
The airport is expecting Barcelona, Malaga, Alicante, Faro and Palma to be the five most popular sunshine routes, with Amsterdam, Dublin and Belfast likely to be among the favourites for those jetting off on city breaks.
Robin Tudor, head of PR at LJLA said: “The region’s travelers look set to take advantage of the convenience and choice of destinations available from Liverpool over the Easter period.
“This is likely to be the busiest weekend of the year so far for the Airport and even busier than last Easter with passenger numbers expected to be around 10% higher.”
He continued: “It’s no surprise to see a number of Mediterranean destinations proving popular as travelers from across the region head off in search of some much needed sunshine and warmer weather from the region’s faster, easier, friendlier airport.”
