Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) has scooped the Best Medium-sized UK Airport at the 2019 British Travel Awards.
Held in London, the awards saw almost a thousand guests in attendance. Voting for the UK Best Airport Award was based on a public voting system. LJLA, which offers more than 70 destinations, has issued a “thank you” to every one who voted for it.
Chief executive John Irving said: “With security process times of under 10 minutes and parking to gate in 15 minutes, we offer a family friendly experience for all passengers.
“This year, we have launched new routes to Vienna, Copenhagen, Guernsey, Varna, Paphos, Corfu and Tenerife, and continue to look to expand our route offering to allow passengers travelling for business or leisure to enjoy a stress-free start to their journey.”
Lorraine Barnes Burton, British Travel Awards’ chief executive, added: “Liverpool John Lennon Airport is to be congratulated on winning the UK’s Best Medium-sized Airport.
“Competition was particularly strong this year but ultimately it is the travelling public who decide the winners by voting for the travel companies they consider the best in the business. The British Travel Awards is the largest consumer awards programme in the UK and to win is truly an accolade.”
