EasyJet has revealed its plans for expansion at Liverpool John Lennon Airport, announcing that an additional Airbus A320 family aircraft will be based in Liverpool this summer. The airline has also announced it will launch a new summer route between Liverpool and the popular Greek island of Corfu.
The 156-seat A319 aircraft will be based in Liverpool throughout the summer season, and it joins two 156-seat Airbus A319, and four 186-seat A320 aircraft already serving the airline’s customers in Liverpool.
The addition of the new aircraft will also create around 40 job opportunities at the airport.
The new route between Liverpool and Corfu is scheduled to launch on 4 June 2023, with weekly departures on Sundays, offering customers in the North West even more choice when it comes to planning a beach holiday with easyJet. Seats are now on sale from just £26.99* at easyJet.com and via the mobile app.
The airline will also be putting its autumn 2023 schedule on sale tomorrow, 8 December, meaning seats on tens of thousands of flights between 1 October and 30 November 2023, including for October Half Term, will be available to snap up early at low fares across the entire easyJet network.
Paul Winfield, Director of Aviation Development for Liverpool John Lennon Airport commented, “We’re delighted that easyJet will be offering passengers from the North West and North Wales even more opportunities to fly from the region’s airport of choice, with more seats now on sale from Liverpool for next Summer as we continue our recovery from the pandemic. Our reputation of delivering a faster, easier, friendlier customer experience is seeing more and more passengers asking to fly from Liverpool.”
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager, added, “I am delighted to be announcing our plans for expansion at Liverpool today. The addition of another aircraft will help us to further strengthen our network in Liverpool and offer customers an even wider range of destinations, like our new route to Corfu. And with flights for autumn 2023 on sale tomorrow, customers can also book early for next autumn and snap up the best fares across our network to find a great-value getaway or October half term holiday.
