Liverpool Airport hits highest passenger numbers in seven years

Liverpool Airport has seen its best passenger numbers in the last 7 years, with a 3% increase on the first 6 months of 2017.

Figures newly released show that over 2.4 million passengers travelled through the airport between January and June of 2018, a 70,000 increase based on figures from the same time period in 2017.

….And if that didn’t sound impressive enough, those passenger numbers are the highest the airport has seen since 2011, and the first time the total number has exceeded 5 million passengers in 7 years. Now that’s impressive!

The airport believes that the passenger growth has been driven by the number of new routes available from the Liverpudlian airport, such as Majorca and Malaga with Blue Air, Champions League Final flights to Kiev and higher passenger loads on existing routes.

It doesn’t end there though; future plans to implement new routes to Pula, Dalaman and Palermo are all expected for Liverpool Airport.

-Liverpool Airport director of aviation development Paul Winfield said:

“The recent completion of the latest terminal improvements gives our growing numbers of passengers an even better customer experience and as we build up to the busiest time of the year with the start of the school summer holidays just a few weeks away, we expect to see further growth in passenger numbers during the second half of the year.”
