Liverpool John Lennon Airport welcomes the opportunity to help shape the future of Aviation in the UK

Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) has welcomed the news that the Government are seeking views on the content of their new aviation strategy that has been published today.


Shaping aviation to help boost economic growth, connectivity and skills will be at the centre of the new strategy to prepare the industry for the next three decades and beyond, with the Government looking for feedback on the six themes of Customer Service, Safety and security, global connectivity, competitive markets, supporting growth while tackling environmental impacts, and innovation, technology and skills.


LJLA will be providing their response to the Government highlighting the importance of Regional Airports to the growth of both the local and national economy, and demonstrating the progress that Liverpool has made in enhancing the customer experience at the Airport through the recent investments made in passenger facilities and high levels of customer engagement.


Mark Povall, Strategy Director for LJLA commented, “We welcome the opportunity to share our views with Government on the new aviation strategy. It is important that this new strategy enables and encourages regional airports such as Liverpool to continue to grow, and that the Government recognises the economic and social benefits that Liverpool Airport brings to both the City Region and the wider Northern Powerhouse.


Supporting improved global connectivity, better surface access, and implementing policies to help growth such as the removal of Air Passenger Duty will all form part of our response to Government.”
