These days, regular services operate to more than 30 holiday destinations, including Corfu, Gran Canaria, Ibiza and Turkey.

Easyjet, the popular low cost airline, who began flights from Liverpool in 1997, signed a 20-year contract with the airport in 2001 whilst Ryanair has also signed a 10-year agreement.

In July 2001 the airport became the first in the UK to be named after an individual – former Beatle and pop icon John Lennon, who hailed from Liverpool. The airport’s logo now includes the famous self portrait drawing by John Lennon and the caption “above us only sky”, taken from the lyrics of Lennon’s “Imagine”, one of the most popular songs of all time.
