Many people will have heard of the first two airports on our list of North West Airports, but few will realise there are actually 8 airports dotted across our region.
The third busiest airport in the United Kingdom has been in operation since it opened in 1938. Manchester Airport handled a record 23.1 million passengers back in 2015, some 26.9 million short of it’s capacity of 50 million passengers per year.
Situated only 35 miles away from Liverpool City Centre, Manchester Airport is the arrival point for many travellers from across the world.
In 2001 Speke Airport was renamed Liverpool John Lennon Airport in memory of the legendary singer/songwriter and founding member of the Beatles John Lennon. The renaming of the airport 21 years after his death made it the first UK airport to be named after a person.
Situated only 8 miles from Liverpool City Centre, Liverpool John Lennon Airport handles over 4 million passengers per annum.
