New domestic flights for Liverpool John Lennon Airport
WELSH airline Air Wales today announced that it is to commence three new domestic air services from Liverpool John Lennon Airport with flights for the first time to Cardiff International and Newcastle International Airports, plus a link to Plymouth City Airport via Newcastle.
Daily scheduled services to all three destinations will commence on December 8 and will operate a set price structure for fares to Cardiff, Newcastle and Plymouth.
Until now, Liverpool John Lennon Airport has experienced growth mainly in European scheduled services and these new flights are seen as an important development for the Airport as it looks to widen the choice of domestic flights, particularly for business travellers in the North West.
Neil Pakey, Liverpool John Lennon Airport's Managing Director commented:-
"In working closely with the region's business community, the Airport recognised the need for good, fast links between the North West and key business centres, which is why these additional services are important to business travellers across the whole North
Clearly, the fact that both Cardiff and Newcastle were contenders for the European Capital of Culture 2008, demonstrates that they also have a lot to offer tourists from the North West, whilst the opportunities for visitors to this part of the UK from all three regions, should also prove attractive."
