Liverpool Airport has started off its Summer 2023 campaign on a strong note, operating more flights per week than in 2019.
Using data from RadarBox.com, we will take a look at how the airport has performed in the first few weeks of this busy period and what scope there is for growth.
Without further ado, let’s get into the numbers…
The Numbers from Liverpool…
For April 18-25, Liverpool Airport handled 123 movements, based on a seven-day rolling average provided by the flight tracking company.
This is exactly the same as the same period last year but is 13 movements higher than 2019 levels.
Below is the last four weeks’ worth of data for the airport:
|Date||2019 Numbers||2022 Numbers||2023 Numbers||Percentage Difference (2023 vs. 2022)|
|March 21-27||95 movements||123 movements||99 movements||-19.51%|
|March 28-April 4||110 movements||118 movements||117 movements||-0.85%|
|April 4-11||113 movements||123 movements||134 movements||+8.94%|
|April 11-18||109 movements||120 movements||124 movements||+3.33%|
What we can see from the data is the transition from the Winter 2022/23 season into the Summer 2023 season, with Liverpool Airport thriving in the early stages of this important season.
The Airport Has Been Doing Well…
In the last 12 months, the airport has been doing very well, with its home carriers Ryanair and easyJet adding more services as they have gone along.
More notably, Icelandic carrier PLAY started operations in the airport earlier this year following a May 2022 announcement.
What remains clear is that as we head further into the Summer 2023 season, the expectation is that the movement numbers will rise with the holiday demand.
And that is an exciting prospect for Liverpool Airport, which has already welcomed one million passengers through its doors this year.
All eyes are now on them to see how much further they can take said numbers.
