Northern airport celebrates five-star rating


Liverpool John Lennon Airport has again been awarded a five-star rating by air travel intelligence company OAG for flight punctuality after more than 85% of its flights were on time over a rolling 12-month period.

Liverpool remains the only airport in the north of England and one of just three across the UK. alongside Birmingham and Cardiff, to achieve an OAG five-star rating. Globally, Liverpool is listed in the top 10% of airports.

LJLA spokesman Robin Tudor said: "The airport has achieved the five-star highest rating consistently for the past 18 months now and this is recognition for all the hard work by staff from the airport, airlines, handling agents and other companies working together to help flights operate on time.

"Liverpool now has an excellent reputation across the industry for on-time performance, which is important both to our passengers and to the airlines who choose to operate from here. We truly are the region's faster, easier, friendlier airport."

OAG marketing director Caroline Mather said: "Naturally delighted that Liverpool Airport have received a 5-star rating from OAG that recognises the levels of service offered at the airport. To be ranked so highly against other global airports reaffirms how much progress the airport has made in recent years both operationally but also in its network to the local travellers."
