Probably means Flyglobespan (not sure, but FSG could be their air industry code - only of use to air industry people really) are flying to Tenerife, via Stansted, which sounds like a trip made in hell to me, but perhaps Westi can clarify.

Just for clarification; JLA is actually a small airport named Quartz Creek in a small village called Coopers Lodge, Alaska, USA. Liverpool John Lennon Airport has call letters that read LPL.

What westi failed to lift (even though he has put it into his own words) from my post elsewhere is that the 'via Stansted' is for 7 weeks and then it flys non-stop to Tenerife from Liverpool.

The reason for the 'via Stansted', I suspect, is due to lack of available aircraft.

No, JFK is John Fitzgerald Kennedy International Airport, Jamaica, Long Island, New York, USA., and the call letters designate for that airport are indeed JFK. JFK was once known as Idlewild Airport, when it's call letters were IDL. Liverpool John Lennon Airport has call letters of LPL. "YOU" may use JLA as a designate for Liverpool John Lennon Airport but "WE", the great unwashed masses worldwide, know that airport by it's rightful IATA designate of "LPL".

Just another small point regarding LPL. The recently announced Flyglobespan flight to Canada will arrive/depart at YHM (Hamilton John Munro Airport, Mount Hope) and not YYZ (Toronto Lester B Pearson International Airport). Hamilton is not considered, by anyone other than LPL, the Post & Echo, Flyglobespan and some on this forum, as a GTA (Greater Toronto Area) airport.

There are two codes that define an airport, one is the airline 'Sita' system and the other the International Civil Aviation Organisation code.

Liverpool John Lennon Airport is known as LPL under Sita and EGGP under ICAO.

Generally the Sita code is used by the travel trade and is normally an abbreviation of the airport name such as MAN, Manchester: NCL, Newcastle. However, many airports have Sita codes that seem to bear no relation to the airport name e.g. MME - Teeside, BHX - Birmingham. For that reason, I doubt very much that Liverpool's code would be changed to JLA, even if that is convenient shorthand for us.

I call it John Lennon or Liverpool. I hate the way some smartarses on here insist on using these codes as if they're in some sort of aviation expert's forum. It's especially annoying when it's not immediately obvious what the initials stand for ie YYZ = Toronto, for instance.

easyJet carried its 15millionth passenger through Liverpool yesterday just days after the airlines ninth anniversary at Liverpool.

Out of interest, are we still expected to break the 5 million mark this year? Anyone know Newcastle's estimated turnover this year?

should do if not it will be very close
the provisional figures for OCT will be out in about two weeks that will give us a clearer indication

Newcastle on about 5.4million at the moment. The next Airport for us to overtake is Belfast intl and all being well this should happen in december.
Then we can have ago at overhauling Newcastle next year

Think NCL (newcastle is a way off yet) as most of the recfent route announcements from LPL have started now with the only really outstanding big one being New york daily from LPL. And even if this were to be full every day woud "only" add 120,000 pax to the total. I know that NCL has also got further expansion to commence.

What we could do with is a further wave of announcements from Easyjet, RyanaIR Flyglobespan or someone new. These announcements are required if the airport is to keep up its fantastic recent development.

?

Re Newcastle, they lost their New York route without it starting, they are losing schedules from easyJet and they are set to lose their BA Gatwick flight, so all in their garden is not that rosy.
