Liverpool Airport: plans for growth to 2030
It launched its "Strategic Vision"
Liverpool "John Lennon Airport" ("LJLA") has launched its "Strategic Vision" to 2030 setting out how it intends to take the business forward, bringing further benefits for the Liverpool City Region, the North West and North Wales.
This strategy incorporates the Airport Master Plan to 2050 which in turn sets out the potential future infrastructure developments required to deliver the forecast expansion of the business and follows last year’s public consultation of the draft Airport Master Plan.
Liverpool is one of the UK’s major regional airports and plays an important role both as an international gateway and as a major driver of the local economy.
The Airport has seen growth in passenger numbers of over 25% since 2014 with 5 million passengers per year now choosing to use Liverpool and has the potential to further enhance its economic and social impact across the region.
Building upon its recent success, the Airport has ambitious plans to serve more destinations including long haul, with passenger forecasts indicating the potential to grow passenger numbers to 7.8 million by 2030. These increases will require a planned investment of around £100m over the next 10 years, in a proposed expansion of the terminal building, additional car parking, passenger facilities including hotels, retail, food and drink services and a potential extension of the runway.
