The addition of another aircraft and the upgrading of two others will help us to deliver long term, sustainable growth at the base providing passengers with a greater range of destinations.

“EasyJet is the UK’s leading airline and we have been committed to Liverpool airport for nearly 20 years. We are proud to have carried more than 40 million passengers in that time. We are delighted to demonstrate our commitment to the North West market with this growth which will enable us to offer more seats to more destinations from next Summer.”
