Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) is expecting 65,000 passengers to pass through over the Easter weekend.
This is around 7% below last year’s figure of 70,000 but higher than the 63,000 passengers passing through in 2017 with a mix of destinations including Mediterranean resort or city breaks.
LJLA says the most popular sunshine routes this Easter will be be Barcelona, Malaga, Alicante, Faro and Palma, with city breaks to destinations such as Amsterdam, Krakow, Dublin and Belfast also expected to be popular, along with Copenhagen, the airport’s newest destination.
Robin Tudor, head of PR for LJLA, said: “We expect the Easter getaway once again to bring the busiest weekend of the year so far for the airport.
“It’s no surprise to see a number of Mediterranean destinations proving popular once again as travellers from across the region head off in search of some spring sunshine, taking advantage of the convenience and great range of destinations available direct from Liverpool.”
