Liverpool John Lennon Airport celebrates best Q1 results since 2011
Passenger growth continued at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) last month, with footfall rising 7% year on year.
More than 390,000 passengers travelled through LJLA in March, delivering a first quarter increase in business of over 4% in comparison to Q1 2017.
The first three months of 2018 saw well over one million passengers use the airport – over 45,000 more than the same period in 2017.
LJLA said it was the highest Q1 figure since 2011.
A combination of new services and higher passenger loads on existing routes contributed to the growth. The uptick is expected to continue over the coming months, with seven new routes announced for 2018, including services from Blue Air, easyJet and Ryanair.
LJLA’s director of aviation development, Paul Winfield, said: “The increased choice of destinations and flights now available from Liverpool plus the completion of our various terminal improvement works is continuing to pay off for the airport and the companies based here.
“Passengers appreciate our faster, easier, friendlier approach to the beginning of their journey, be they traveling for leisure or on business and we expect to see further growth in numbers as more new routes begin throughout the year.”
