Liverpool John Lennon Airport is expecting a busy Easter Bank Holiday

Over 64,000 passengers are expected to pass through Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) over the course of the busy Easter Bank Holiday weekend as travellers from the region take off to a variety of destinations during the first Bank Holiday weekend of the year.

As the airport continues to recover from COVID, forecasted passenger numbers for this weekend are expected to be more than 40% higher than those for the four-day Easter Bank Holiday weekend last year. Following the start of the airline’s summer schedules last week, travellers from all over the North West and North Wales will be taking advantage of the airport’s faster, easier, and friendlier passenger experience as well as the increase in flights from Liverpool.

Flights to places like Alicante, Malaga, Palma, Faro, Tenerife, and Dalaman are anticipated to be busiest, along with flights to places closer to home like Belfast, Dublin, Cork, Jersey, Paris, and Amsterdam. The allure of warmer weather and some much-needed Mediterranean sunshine is once again proving most popular.

Despite becoming busier, passengers can still expect to check-in quickly and pass through the terminal with ease compared to many larger airports, and having topped the latest Which? UK airport survey, travellers can look forward to a great passenger experience.

For many this will be the first time they have jetted off on holiday this year and the Airport is keen to remind all passengers that restrictions on liquids taken in hand luggage remain unchanged. Whilst plans are in place to introduce the latest generation security equipment that will enable the carriage of larger volumes of liquids in hand luggage, this equipment won’t start to be installed at the Airport until later this year.

Robin Tudor, Head of PR for Liverpool John Lennon Airport said:

“The Easter getaway brings the busiest holiday period of the year so far for the Airport, with passengers taking advantage of the great choice of destinations to jet off to and our faster, easier, friendlier passenger experience.

We don’t expect lengthy queues for our passengers, however travellers should remember that security restrictions regarding items in hand luggage including liquids, are still in force at the majority of UK airports including Liverpool and because the airport will be busier than usual, passengers should allow plenty of time to pass through the terminal.”
