Liverpool John Lennon Airport – giving local business a competitive advantage

Posted by Liverpool John Lennon Aiport

It’s great to see so many fellow Chamber members continuing to grow and develop their business despite the uncertain business environment that we all currently operate in and when it comes to international business. Liverpool John Lennon Airport is well placed to help companies large and small, with direct access to a growing range of destinations across Europe. We believe that the Airport is a great asset for the City Region, ideally placed to help companies take advantage of the connectivity afforded by the Airport, increasing levels of international business and helping the visitor economy by attracting more visitor numbers from overseas.

With flights to over 70 destinations, including a growing range of European cities, LJLA can help local companies do more overseas business. Over the past 12 months we have attracted new airlines and a range of new routes as well as continuing to work closely with existing carriers to develop additional and new services too.

However the Airport recognises that there are many more opportunities for the region’s businesses to explore, if the Airport’s connectivity was improved further. It is for this reason that we are continually looking to better understand what local businesses want from the Airport, particularly regarding what new routes companies would like to see available from Liverpool. This is why we are asking Chamber members to tell us about their travel habits and needs, by completing a short business travel survey ( www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/97WF9FQ ) the information from which will be used in talks with existing and prospective airline partners as we look to develop more routes.

Whilst this increased connectivity is important, the best customer experience is essential too. LJLA is the faster, easier, friendlier Airport of choice for passengers from across the region and is recognised for its relaxed, hassle free environment and best in class operational performance. Queue times at Airport security remain low, with 97% of all passengers taking 10 minutes or less to pass through security and over 80% taking less than 5 minutes and there’s a much higher chance of their flight being on time, with Liverpool having the UK’s only 5-star airport rating for flight punctuality.

Having an airport within the City Region gives Liverpool a competitive advantage over other regions across the UK which it can capitalise on. By working together the Airport can help local businesses to grow, increasing their reach and realise their ambitions too.
