Over the past 12 months the Airport 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 they 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. LJLA are asking Chamber Members complete a short business travel survey here, informing the Airport of their travel habits and needs. The information from which will be used in talks with existing and prospective airline partners as we look to develop more routes.
