Liverpool John Lennon Airport (JLA) is once again gearing up for the great Christmas and New Year ‘Getaway' with around 190,000 passengers expected to pass through the Airport over the holiday period.
The end of school term on Friday triggered the first increase in passengers through the Airport as families across the region headed off on flights from Liverpool to seek some much needed Winter sun, to go skiing, visit relatives, or looking for Christmas and New Year festivities across Europe.
As usual, popular flights for passengers over the coming days are expected to be winter ski destinations such as Salzburg, Innsbruck, Lyon and Grenoble, The Canary Islands and southern Spain for some warmer winter weather and Christmas city break destinations.
Christmas is also a time to meet up with family and friends with many passengers taking advantage of flights to Northern Ireland and The Republic of Ireland. Visitor numbers arriving to the region via the Airport are also expected to continue to grow over the festive period too.
Helping to put passengers in the holiday mood, World Duty Free have the Liverpool Town Crier in their store in the departure lounge today and on Friday 23rd December. They also have a gift wrapping service available at certain times too, for any passengers wanting to purchase last minute presents, ready to give to friends and family.
JLA Management are once again keen to remind all passengers to allow plenty of time to pass through the Airport during this busy period and that stringent security restrictions still apply, with passengers being urged to arrive at the Airport at least 2 hours ahead of their departure times as usual.
