About Liverpool John Lennon Airport

Liverpool John Lennon Airport (IATA: LPL , ICAO: EGGP ) is
an international airport serving North West England. Its CAA Public Use Aerodrome Licence Number is P735. On the outbreak of World War II, the airport was operated by the RAF and known as RAF Speke . The airport is within the City of Liverpool on the banks of the estuary of the River Mersey some 6.5 nautical miles (12.0 km; 7.5 mi) southeast of the city centre.[2] Originally called Speke Airport , the airport was renamed after Liverpudlian musician John Lennon of the Beatles in 2001. Scheduled domestic, European, and North African services are operated from the airport.

Between 1997–2007, the facility was one of Europe’s fastest-growing airports, increasing annual passenger numbers from 689,468 in 1997 to 5.47 million in 2007.[3] Despite passenger numbers having decreased to just over 4.8 million in 2016, this was an 11.1% increase on the 2015 total, making it the 12th-busiest airport in the UK. The airport served 4.95 million passengers in 2017, an increase of 3% over 2016. The airport handled just over 5 million passengers 2018.

Sorry mine is the Flybe one, not the orange one. Much prefer the Dash8. Thanks!

I legitimately thought this was my flyout being bumped 😂

I’ll make my way to Tenerife South, either gate ✌


Any chance you could switch a Ryanair gate for a flight to EYVI Vilnius, please? Thanks!
