Liverpool John Lennon Airport has teamed up with a local independent travel agency to create a holiday arm.

Liverpool Airport Holidays is being run with local Atol-protected Global Travel group member Myriad Travel to offer tailormade packages to more than 70 destinations flying from Merseyside.

Holidays will feature on a dedicated page on the airport website and also be promoted across the airport’s social media channels, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and a new WhatsApp account.

Airport aviation development director Paul Winfield said: “Liverpool Airport Holidays has been introduced to give the region’s holidaymakers an easy way to access some fantastic package holidays, all with the benefits of flying from Liverpool John Lennon airport.

“This is the start of the Liverpool Airport Holidays product, with further exciting developments planned as we continue to increase our range of airlines and destinations.”
