Blue Air announces new route from LJLA!

AIRLINE Blue Air have announced their latest new route to operate from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA), with flights to Palma de Mallorca for Summer 2018.  Flights will commence on 2 June 2018, with twice weekly departures on Wednesday's and Saturday's through to the end of September 2018.

Liverpool became Blue Air's 8th European base earlier this year with the basing of one of the airline's 189 seat Boeing 737-700 aircraft, at LJLA, and this new destination for the airline complements their existing 6 flights from Liverpool to Milan, Rome and Alicante along with 3 destinations in Romania. Majorca is a favourite summer sun destination for North West holidaymakers and Blue Air's flights are expected to be very popular.

Paul Winfield, Director of Aviation Development for LJLA commented:- "We are delighted to see Blue Air announce additional services from Liverpool and we will continue to work closely with one of Europe's fastest growing airlines to look at other new destinations in the near future too. This new service gives the Region's holidaymakers a further opportunity to travel to one of the most popular destinations in Europe from the fastest easiest friendliest airport in the North West."

Tudor Constantinescu, Blue Air's Chief Commercial Officer said:- "To be able to announce a brand-new route less than 12 months after our arrival at Liverpool John Lennon Airport is something that we are very proud of. It's been an incredible year and we are delighted with the response that we have received from our passengers. We want to thank them by offering a sale on all Blue Air routes in the UK, which will of course include Palma de Mallorca, our latest addition to our Summer 2018 schedule."

Birkenhead Park recognised as 1 of the Top 100 historical places in England

BIRKENHEAD Park has been chosen as 1 of the Top 100 historically significant places in England by Historic England. The 'A History of England in 100 places' project has been searching the length and breadth of England to find the country's most significant sites which have helped shape both this country and countries internationally. The Grade I listed landscape and conservation area was 1 of 10 historical sites chosen in the 'Homes and Gardens' category alongside Windsor castle, Blenheim Palace and Wirral's own Port Sunlight village. TV presenter George Clarke, who has judged the Homes and Gardens category, is 1 of a panel of expert judges, including Mary Beard, Baroness Tanni Grey Thompson, Tristram Hunt and David Olusoga, who have chosen 10 places in 10 different categories from a long list of public nominations. Designed by Sir Joseph Paxton and opened in 1847, Birkenhead Park was the world's 1st publicly funded park in the world and was also the 1st park to be created through an Act of Parliament. Its creation was a response to the poor health conditions brought on by the industrial revolution with the aim of developing a 'green oasis' amongst the hustle and bustle of urban life. Birkenhead Park has influenced the design of urban parks across the world, most notably Central Park, New York and will now be featured in Historic England's recently launched podcast series, hosted by Emma Barnett.

Cllr Phillip Brightmore, Wirral's Cabinet Member for Environment said:- "I am incredibly proud that Birkenhead Park has been recognised by Historic England and the Top 100 places project. To be chosen alongside places such as Windsor Castle is a real honour and shows just how influential Birkenhead Park has been in the history of not only Wirral and England, but internationally as well. I would also like to thank the hard working, dedicated staff and volunteers that care for Birkenhead Park and maintain it to its historically excellent standard."
