Liverpool John Lennon Airport Liverpool is one of the UK's oldest operational Airport's, first thought of as an idea in 1928 with first scheduled flights commencing in 1930 and an 'official' opening ceremony some 3 years later on 1 July 1933.

Situated some 7 miles South East of Liverpool City Centre and adjacent to the Mersey Estuary, the Airport location was chosen for three reasons:

  • Close proximity to the City of Liverpool and surrounding conurbation's.
  • Ideal geography of the site for aircraft movements.
  • Excellent year round weather record (fog free).
During the mid 1990’s some ?4 million was subsequently invested in improving and expanding the terminal with new and larger landside and airside passenger lounges and an expanded arrivals hall to cater for growth in passenger throughput. 47% of such developments was funded through the EC Objective One programme.

The Airport steadily continued to grow its passenger throughput with tour operator Direct Holidays choosing to fly from Liverpool in 1996 bringing a range of value for money Mediterranean charter flights to the Airport for the first time in many years.

Airport Rebranding

Liverpool John Lennon Airport In July 2001 Yoko Ono visited the Airport to announce a renaming and rebranding to Liverpool John Lennon Airport. This coincided with construction and subsequent future completion of the new look Airport and in honour of her late husband as a fitting, lasting tribute to the former Beatle who originated from Liverpool. The Airport became the first in the UK to be named after an individual.

The new logo for the Airport included the famous self portrait drawing by John Lennon and the strapline “above us only sky”, taken from the lyrics of Lennon’s “Imagine”, one of the most popular songs of all time.

The renaming and rebranding was completed in March 2002 when Yoko Ono returned to the Airport to jointly unveil a 7ft bronze statue of John Lennon by well known local sculptor Tom Murphy. The imposing statue is sited on the main passenger walkway overlooking the check-in hall and is clearly visible to all Airport users.
