Provisional stats from the CAA

October passengers 460,961 +10.4%

Moving annual total
Nov05-Oct06 4,909,635
compared to last year
Nov04-Oct05 4,214,000

growth a bit sluggish for the amount of new routes started in October however compared to other airports our size or bigger,still impressive growth

we need an increase of a little over 45,000 a month for the next two months to reach 5,000,000 for the year so going to be close either way.

I cant believe the JFK plane is stopping at Knock, was demand not strong enough? And why Knock of all places there is nothing there... Surely Cork would be a better market?

I wouldn’t worry too much. It started as a rumour on the notoriously unreliable pprune (a pilot’s bitchfest), then someone who is a keen supporter of Robin Hood airport in Doncaster posted something on NWAN (a local site for JLA). Apparently the ‘direct’ flight from Glasgow to Boston is also going to be stopping off at Knock en route! Looks like Knock is going to be getting ALL the action. Anyway, flyglobespan themselves haven’t seen fit to announce it publicly – this seems a bit odd. Check it out for yourself:

http://www.flyglobespan.com/index.asp?lan=en

BTW, JLA already has direct flights to Cork. Rumours abound that Air Arran are thinking of restarting their service to Knock and flybe are looking at a JLA – Isle of Man link. Every so often we hear that easyjet are looking into a LPL – Gatwick link. In other words I’ll take the story about a Knock stopover with a pinch of salt until I can book a seat online.

Gareth, is there any way of moving the posts on this thread to the original JLA thread and then closing this one or is it OK to have two on the go at the same time?

Alternatively, maybe the name could be changed to:

Oi Globespan! What's going on?

or

Biggest employers in the city region.

the globespan debacle is not suprise, i said it when they first announced new york,, Its a shame to say it but i really would not bet against the NY flight getting off the ground.

So far they have pulled the Prague route.
Routed the Teneriefe route via STN
and now JFK (originally changed from newark) via Knock...

whatever next .... its tough but there are 3 flights a day from MAN to NY so why would anyone in their right mind get on a service to NY via KNOCK.

Some joined up thinking required asap .... though i fear it may already be too late.

It is not a rumour, go to http://dmses.dot.gov/docimages/p88/430420.pdf to see the application.

FlyGlobespan has asked the US DofT for permission (note permission, it may or not be granted and flyGlobespan may not choose to use the stop anyway) to pick up/drop off passengers to/from the US using the Liverpool service.

All interested parties need to reply by next week.

Done. I believe that the search function works now, so could I ask that people use it? I'm also creating a new index, so there'll be no excuses. Let's keep Liverpool tidy, even in the virtual world.

Not a fan of the provisional stats much better to wait for the official ones from the CAA.

Always a bit of difference between the two types.

Festive getaway means JLA will hit 5m mark


RECORD numbers of holiday-makers are expected to use John Lennon Airport to head overseas this Christmas for a festive break.

And this year’s Christmas getaway is expected to be the airport’s busiest yet, thanks to new destinations launched this year – taking the total served by the airport to 60.

Some 128,000 passengers are set to pass through the airport during the holidays, bringing an increase of over 6% on the same period last year.

Robin Tudor, general manager, (corporate and community affairs) at the airport, said that more people across Merseyside were choosing to go abroad for Christmas lured by winter sunshine and cheap air fares.

He said: “The beginning of the school holidays again brings the start of the great Christmas getaway as famil-ies and friends head for the sun, the snow and other festivities over the Christmas and New Year holiday period.


“It’s no surprise the Christ-mas period will be busier than ever. Over the last year we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of new routes on offer and this has certainly had a knock-on effect on the number of passengers using Liverpool John Lennon Airport .


“At the end of this year we expect to have reached a throughput of almost five million passengers and expect numbers to grow further in 2007 and into the Capital of Culture Year 2008.”


With over 60 destinations on sale from JLA, many passengers are heading off to the warmer climates of Tenerife, Malaga, Santander and Italy’s Ancona..Others are embarking on city breaks such as Amster-dam, Paris or Venice.


Mr Tudor added: “Many will also be using JLA to take to the slopes via Geneva or stay closer to home and visit Aberdeen or Inverness.

Airport expansion plan has public support


A BIGGER Liverpool John Lennon airport has won the support of the people of Merseyside.

The airport's draft masterplan for growth to 2030 launched in July could lead to passenger levels of 12.3m a year and an 11,300-strong workforce.

More than 60% of people who responded to the airport's consultation exercise said they were in favour of JLA growing.

There were 1,000-plus responses from individuals, businesses and organisations and the plans on the airport' web-site attracted more than 150,000 hits.

And today airport officials revealed that:

* 66% agreed with the airport's vision for long haul passenger and freight.


* 69% recognised its economic benefits in terms of job creation and tourism.


* 60% supported the plan to extend the runway to increase the range of destinations and services.


* 43% agreed with measures proposed by the airport to minimise the impact on the environment.


Peter Nears, strategic planning director for airport owners Peel Holdings, said: "There have been no real surprises from the feedback, with the majority recognising the positive benefits that a successful, expanding airport brings to a region.


"At the same time, however, many were clear to remind us that such growth naturally impacts on the environment and that the airport should minimise such effects wherever possible. This will be important when the airport looks to progress such proposals further."


The draft master plan estimated that passenger levels could increase to 8.3m by 2015 and 12.3m by 2030.


To achieve the targeted growth the airport proposes to expand terminal capacity and the runway, create a new road link, establish a world cargo centre and develop a coastal park extension to preserve the surrounding environment.


The airport's revised masterplan will be submitted to the Department for Transport in the New Year.

Dense fog is still affecting flights in and out of Liverpool Airport. All planes were grounded from 09:30 yesterday, with inbound flights diverted to East Midlands and Blackpool airports.

The fog is not expected to clear until 10:00 this morning, and all passengers are advised to ring their airlines before setting off to the airport.
Does this mean that the 5m pax for the year will be missed?
