EasyJet is offering two new routes out of Liverpool John Lennon Airport


Low-cost airline easyJet is offering two new routes out of Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) this winter – to Hurghada in Egypt and Lyon in France.

On October 29, the carrier will launch from Liverpool to Egypt’s scuba-diving hotspot Hurghada, operating twice a week on Thursdays and Sundays. The route will continue into summer 2024.

EasyJet is the number one carrier from the UK to Egypt which continues to prove popular with UK holidaymakers for guaranteed winter sun, vast sandy beaches and world-renowned coral reefs.

On December 13 the airline will also begin twice-weekly flights to Lyon. Operating on Wednesdays and Fridays throughout winter. It offers access to the renowned Christmas markets or to the Alps for skiing trips. One-way prices for both routes start from £27.99.

Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK country manager, said: “We’re delighted to be launching two new routes and holidays from Liverpool to Hurghada and Lyon.

“They will provide even more choice for our customers this winter whether they’re looking for a Christmas getaway, hitting the slopes or chasing the winter sun and we can’t wait to welcome more customers on board.”

Last week Liverpool Airport celebrated its 90th birthday. In May LBN revealed a year-on-year rise in passenger numbers to 3.77m in the 12 months to March 31, 2023. There have been a number of new routes launched and Jet2 is always set to fly from Liverpool.

Paul Winfield, aviation director at LJLA, added: “These two new winter routes from easyJet adds to the growing list of destinations available direct from the region’s airport of choice for passengers.

“We are also delighted to welcome back flights to Lyon once again, which we expect to be popular with skiers traveling to the Alps.”
