Despite the global credit crunch, Ryanair, Europe’s largest low fares airline, today announced that it will launch two new routes from Liverpool John Lennon Airport later this year. Services will commence to Paris Beauvais in France and to Turin in Italy for the Winter season onwards.

This latest expansion brings the number of routes at Ryanair’s Liverpool base to 46 and passengers can now access an even wider variety of European destinations from Liverpool.

Flights will operate daily to Paris Beauvais starting from the beginning of November, whilst the weekly flight to Turin commences on 20th December. 
Neil Pakey, Peel Airport’s Deputy CEO, said: “At a time when many airlines are cutting back and we hear about the credit crunch, it is particularly pleasing to see Ryanair’s continued commitment to their operations from Liverpool with these new services. Paris is a great all year round destination for both business and leisure whilst Turin will be popular with skiers in the coming months.”

Speaking today Ryanair Sales and Marketing Executive Maria Macken said,  “The new Paris Beauvais will mean an extra 100,000 passengers per annum travelling to and from Liverpool, sustaining an additional 100 jobs.

Your Views On An Expanded Heathrow December 12, 2007

The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) is seeking your views on the Government’s consultation on adding capacity at Heathrow Airport. The UK has campaigned strongly for airport expansion and Heathrow, as the UK’s busiest airport and only true hub, is crucial to the economy’s continued success. As it stands Heathrow is falling behind its major competitors. Amsterdam Schipol, for instance serves 21 UK airports compared with only nine served by Heathrow. London, as the world’s premier financial district, is also heavily reliant on its international connectivity and Heathrow underpins this success. It is for these reasons that the BCC is seeking your views on the proposed expansion of Heathrow.

Whilst Liverpool does not currently have a direct link to Heathrow this consultation might well be one way in which the role of regional airports feeding into major hubs can be further debated.

Liverpool Chamber needs to submit its response to BCC by 15 February so a response to Liverpool Chamber by the end of January 2008 would be helpful.
