LIVERPOOL - 2

Globespan submitted to the US authorities that it intended to fly the Liverpool/New York JFK route daily in summer 2007 and then drop down to two per week in winter 2007/08.

But it has now released its winter schedule for the route and it continues until early January 2008 (at least) with a daily rotation.

Liverpool Airport Surcharge

Bit surprised that nobody here has commented on Liverpool Airport's proposal to surcharge all of its departing passengers by 2...

http://icliverpool.icnetwork.co.uk/liverpooldailypost/news/regionalnews/tm_headline=easyjet-in-row-with-john-lennon-airport-&method=full&objectid=18315595&siteid=50061-name_page.html

...easyJet says that the new charge will come into effect from 1st January, but the airport insists that they have set no firm start date yet.

Just a money making scheme, nothing more, nothing less, we are all being taken for a ride in the name of security, just hope JLA suffer from this.

Has any other airport introduced (or even considered) such a scheme?

Easyjet actually went beserk when this was announced. it has been all over the Liverpool Echo and local radio.

Easy were incensed and suggested that pax simply ignore the demand for extra cash.

I suspect we have not heard the last of this...!

Also strange that the Airports MD suggested a proposed hike in airport duty costs announced by the chancellor 2 weeks before this announcement would badly hit the airports development of new routes....

.... a situation which appears not to be the case if the airport hike up charges themselves......

short memories !

Liverpool Airports security is a joke. If anyone from Liverpool Airport who are responsible for security would like to PM me, I will gladly tell them something they urgently need to sort out.

Fr @ Lpl

Possibly something to do with the new routes to ALC and PMI that have just appeared in the booking system from LPL ?

(There are about 15 new routes across the network today)

Not as yet, its now well past the favourite 10am start time for the FR press conferences.

Could it be that the number of press conferences over Europe could be just rumour?

When you say booking system do you mean the websites booking engine?

Possible theft from Liverpool airport?

Just been infromed by our courier company that their van containing IOM packages etc was stolen last night allegedly from inside a secure area

If this is true it makes a mockery of security at the airport - and especially the attempts to introduce a surcharge on passengers - when someone can walk into a secure area and steal a van!

When is the LPL night flight ban due to end?

I originally heard it was April, but is there anything more accurate yet?

Easyjet used to operate a LTN service a couple of years ago and dropped
VLM do LCY which I think is down to 2 a day

So not a lot interest really especially as Virgin trains are so quick and frequent ( hourly with a few extras )

Liverpool Airport owners, Peel Holdings, are planning to create a 5.5bn 'skyscraper city' to the north of the city centre.
Part of the plan is to link this, the development, with the city centre and on to the airport with a high speed Monorail network.
Plans have already been put to Liverpool City Council, the public unveiling will be next Tuesday.
