August Bank Holiday expected to be busiest of year

This weekend is once again expected to be Liverpool John Lennon Airport’s (LJLA) busiest of the year as the August Bank Holiday sees thousands of the region’s travellers taking advantage of the great choice of flights from the airport.

Between Friday and Monday, almost 70,000 passengers are expected to pass through the Airport over the long weekend - an increase of approximately 5% compared to last year and the busiest August Bank Holiday period for the Airport since 2011.

The continued wet and windy poor Summer weather, means that the majority of the region’s holidaymakers are likely to be heading off from Liverpool in search of some much needed sunshine to resorts on the Mediterranean as passengers take advantage of the wide choice of holiday destinations available from LJLA. Weekend city breaks are expected to be popular too with passengers travelling to a variety of European cities, such as Rome, Prague, Milan, Berlin and Budapest.

Robin Tudor, Head of PR for Liverpool John Lennon Airport, commented: “August Bank Holiday weekend is always our busiest time and this year with many people so fed up of the miserable Summer weather here at home, we expect even more passengers will take advantage of the great choice of flights and the convenience of flying from Liverpool to a host of destinations a lot warmer than here in the UK.”
