Liverpool airport announces busiest year since 2012

Figures that were released a week ago (06/01/16) show that Liverpool airport have had their busiest year since 2012. The figures show that the airport welcomed approximately 4.3million passengers through their doors in 2015, meaning an 8% increase on the previous year.

It would seem that it was the festive period which gave Liverpool a big boost, with passenger numbers in December increasing 15% on the previous year. Not only did they see a massive increase, but it was also the 11th consecutive month of growth for the airport, in which they saw 310,000 passengers travel in and out. It would seem that Liverpool is becoming a much more popular choice.

Not only is the airport popular with passengers, but also with airlines. 2015 saw the number of airlines wanting to fly to and from Liverpool nearly triple to 10. This is set to increase with more routes hopefully starting at the end of March this year, including Vueling who will be flying three-times weekly to Barcelona and Thomson airways who will be flying weekly to Palma in May.

Andrew Cornish, who is the CEO of Liverpool airport told “Looking back, 2015 has been an excellent year for the airport. We have made significant progress, delivering on our objectives…“. With the CEO clearly feeling positive, it looks like 2016 is set to be another great year for the airport.
