LJLA continues to grow

Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) has recorded its 14th consecutive month of growth as passenger numbers hit 380,000 in March.

Growth in passenger numbers continued at LJLA during March as passenger numbers rose by 18% compared to March 2015 - the highest March figures since 2011.

The figures have contributed to a strong first quarter, with over 1 million passengers using the airport this year already - almost 170,000 more than in 2015.

Robin Tudor, head of PR for Liverpool John Lennon Airport, said: “This has been a tremendous first quarter for the Airport and the airlines that now operate from here.

“In the week that we have the Grand National Festival and an expected 15% increase of visitors on many routes, these latest growth figures are set to continue and are expected to contribute towards a further upsurge in business at the Airport in 2016.”

A number of new services also started from Liverpool in March. Vueling commenced their new service to Barcelona and Wizz Air started flights to both Budapest and Katowice.

March also saw the return of Czech Airlines with their twice weekly flights to Prague.
