3 years ago
The next wave of Ryanair departures recommenced this morning from Liverpool John Lennon Airport and all flights got away either early or on time withe new safety measures in place.
July will see flights to an additional 29 European destinations operate from Liverpool for the first time since the lockdown started as airlines continue to restart operations and enable travellers to get away once again, with the number of weekly departures increasing to over 120 later this month.
Ryanair are adding 25 more destinations to their Liverpool July schedule, with easyJet recommencing flights to 4 more destinations and Wizz Air 3 more. Many more services are due to restart in August too.
Spokesman Robin Tudor said LJLA was delighted to welcome back passengers as airline services begin to return.
And he added: “The safety and security of all passengers and employees has always been the Airport’s top priority. Throughout this crisis staff have been preparing the Airport in order to welcome back customers.
“Passengers can continue to take advantage of Liverpool’s Faster, Easier Friendlier experience, while reassured that comprehensive measures are in place to reduce the risk of infection in line with the latest Government guidance.”
Passengers will notice changes and must adhere to new guidelines, the main ones of which are:
1. Keep 2m apart
With plenty of space available, social distancing can easily be maintained throughout the terminal along with ‘our usual quick processing times’.
2. Wash or sanitise hands regularly
Passengers are encouraged to use the hand washing facilities and hand sanitiser stations located throughout the terminal. Comprehensive cleaning measures are also in place.
3. Wear a face covering
Face coverings should be worn at all times throughout the airport terminal. Staff will also be wearing face masks or will be behind protective screens.
4. Passenger access only
Only those travelling are permitted into the terminal unless an accompanying adult is providing assistance.
To help prepare passengers in advance of their journey through the Airport, LJLA has asked passengers to familiarise themselves with all the changes before they travel so they can continue to enjoy the benefits of flying from Liverpool while helping to minimise the spread of the virus.
Robin Tudor says: “Key to passenger safety will be to adhere to much the same measures that we are all becoming used to elsewhere.”
