Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) supported more travellers last year than any other British airport. The latest survey of airport passenger traffic in the UK shows that Liverpool’s airport had the biggest rise in scheduled passenger numbers amongst all UK airports.

The analysis is based on data covering January to September 2010 and is compared to the data for 2009. The latest report, published by RDC Aviation, analyses passenger traffic flows at UK airports as reported to the Civil Aviation Authority.

In the year to date, LJLA saw 225,000 more scheduled passengers than in the same period of 2009. This was the biggest increased in passenger numbers seen at any airport over the period.

For most of 2010, LJLA has continued to lead UK airports on growth in scheduled passenger numbers. The news comes despite the major losses suffered during closures caused by the Icelandic ash cloud in April and bad weather at New Year’s.

Out of 50 UK airports, LJLA was amongst just 11 that saw increased passenger numbers from January to September. At 5.6%, LJLA was also the second-fastest growing airport in the country.
