Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) has launched a campaign for local travel agents to promote departures from Liverpool ahead of those from other airports, highlighting to the region’s holidaymakers the latest opportunities to fly from their local airport.

With a growing range of destinations bringing increased passenger numbers, the airport has become the 'Faster, Easier, Friendlier Airport' of choice for passengers from across the region and is recognised for its relaxed environment and operational performance.

A number of local travel agents including Hays, Tui, Myriad Travel, Crowne Travel, Pearl King Travel, Barnes travel Worldwide, CTI business travel and the Global travel group have already signed up to the ‘We sell Liverpool Airport 1st’ campaign, committing to promote departures from Liverpool to their customers ahead of flights from alternative airports.

The campaign is aimed at highlighting the convenience of flying from Liverpool, particularly for local holidaymakers. Other benefits include on site car parking close to the terminal, average security queue times of five minutes, one of the UK’s best records for on time departures and fast baggage collection times when returning home.

More than £5million of passenger facility improvements have also helped to enhance the customer experience, with surveys showing that positive passenger feedback is now at an all-time high.

In addition, last month the airport received a good rating by the Civil Aviation Authority for the quality of assistance they provide to passengers with a disability, helping to encourage more people with a disability to fly.
