Re: Passenger Figures

Liverpool John Lennon airport aims to maintain passenger levels despite first UK-wide fall since 1991

LIVERPOOL John Lennon Airport expects to beat the airline industry downturn by maintaining its passenger numbers this year.

The airport believes it can confound the worst economic conditions in decades that have resulted in the first fall in UK airport passenger numbers since 1991. Airlines, including UK flag carrier BA and even cut-price leader Ryanair, have scaled back flights in response to tumbling demand.

Only last month, Ryanair, JLA’s biggest carrier by far, axed 10 routes out of Liverpool, cutting the number of jets based there from seven to six. The airline blamed the impact of the Government’s air passenger tax.

Liverpool JLA spokesman Robin Tudor said the airport was confident it could match last year’s 5.4m passengers.

He said: “For this summer, across the board, we will be up to 62 routes during 2008, compared with 59 last year.”

Mr Tudor explained this was due to a mixture of seasonal summer routes being reinstated by Ryanair and new routes, including three by Easyjet to Bordeaux, Naples and Dubrovnik in June, a new link with Prague by Wizz Air commencing this July, and the prestigious three-times-a-day service to Amsterdam, byKLM, starting on March 29, which will link Liverpool into 650 global routes operated by KLM and its Skyteam partners.

Mr Tudor acknowledged that the withdrawal of a Ryanair jet will inevitably reduce frequency on some of its remaining routes, but said Easyjet’s decision to base an extra plane at JLA, taking its commitment to nine, will help cushion the blow.

“Taking all this into account, we have run the figures and we hope that we might be similar to last year on overall passenger numbers of 5.4m.”

If the airport achieves its target, it would reinforce its reputation as one of the fastest-growing in Europe over the past 12 years, since it was bought by property group Peel Holdings in 1997. JLA’s target is in contrast to new figures released by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) showing the total number of passengers using UK airports in 2008 fell 1.9% to 234m from a 2007 peak of 239m. The CAA also predicts the slump will last until 2010, the first consecutive decline since World War II.

Re: Passenger Figures

[textarea]Liverpool Airport passengers down 8.1% in 2009

Liverpool Airport saw an 8.1% decline in passenger numbers, which totalled 4.95m, for 2009, according to statistics compiled by support group the Friends of Liverpool Airport (FoLA). The figures also show easyJet recovered from falling passenger numbers far quicker than rival Ryanair at the airport.

According to FoLA easyJet has managed to pull out of a dive in its passenger numbers at Liverpool Airport, but rival Ryanair finished the year in a steep decline. Figures produced by FoLA member Keith Hardwick show easyJet suffered a relatively modest 4% fall in passenger numbers, flying 2.33m to and from the airport last year. However, Ryanair lost 12.9%, flying 2.17m people.

That's interesting because you would expect Ryanair with it's super cheap fares to recover quicker than Easyjet.

[textarea]Liverpool the only UK airport to grow in January

Liverpool Airport was the only airport in England to report an increase in passenger numbers in January, according to new survey. The airport saw an 7.9% increase in passengers according to a research published by aviation intelligence specialist anna.aero.

In November and December the Merseyside airport's passenger numbers grew 8 and 7 per cent respectively. The growth follows last year's launch of a new KLM route to Amsterdam and Eastern Airways services to Aberdeen and Southampton which began last March. Manchester and Blackpool Airports saw a decrease in passenger numbers in January of 14% and 11.9% respectively.

Liverpool Airport Still Tops UK Airport Growth League Table

Latest analysis of UK airport passenger traffic shows that Liverpool John Lennon Airport (JLA) has seen the largest increase in scheduled passenger numbers of any UK airport for the period January to September 2010, compared to the same period in 2009.

The latest publication of data produced by well respected aviation industry consultants RDC Aviation, contains analysis of UK passenger traffic flows as reported by the CAA up to September 2010. For the year to date, over 225,000 additional scheduled passengers chose to use JLA compared to the same period last year – the greatest increase in scheduled passenger numbers of any UK airport during this period.

JLA has continued to be the top UK airport for growth in scheduled passenger numbers for most of this year and this news comes despite seeing the significant loss in business during the New Year snow and ice disruption and the six day closure of UK airspace caused by the Icelandic volcano ash cloud in April.
The Airport was shown to be just one of only eleven UK airports in a list of 50, to see any growth in passenger numbers between January and September and the second fastest growing UK airport with passenger growth of 5.6%.

In terms of scheduled passengers, Liverpool remains in eighth place in the league table of busiest UK airports in 2010, with almost four million passengers having used the Airport by the end of September.

Additional services operated during this period by airlines such as KLM, Eastern Airways, easyJet and Ryanair, in comparison to the same time last year, have all contributed to this success.

Work on a £12m development program at the airport is now nearing completion in order to better accommodate the needs of airport users. Developments have included the opening of a new passenger security screening area and expansion of the Airport’s departure lounge, bringing a number of new and exciting retail developments and high street names to the Airport for the first time.

Peel Airports’ CEO Craig Richmond commented, “Once again its credit to all here at the Airport that Liverpool continues to out perform other UK airports.”

“Whilst we recognise we now have a difficult few months ahead as we enter the quieter Winter period, it is pleasing that for most of the year we will have been at the top of this particular league table.”

November 2010 CAA stats

After a long stellar period LPL seems to have had a bit of a slow-down in November.

It handled 313,204 passengers in the month, down 13% on November 2009, with atms down 8%, suggesting that loads were slightly down.

Rolling total was 5,066,179, up 4.3% on a year ago, which means the year to date as a whole is very impressive compared with most airports in the country.

December 2010 CAA Stats

300,676 passengers handled in the month, down 15.9% on December 2009. Atms down 6.9% which follows the pattern of last month when passenger numbers were down at a greater percentage rate than the reduction in atms.

Liverpool has had an excellent year until the winter when loads have been down well into double digit percentage figures, although like everywhere else the weather must be factored into December.

Total for the calendar year of 2010 is 5,008,305 - up 2.6% on 2009, a good performance because many UK airports showed a decrease in numbers.

January 2011

CAA provisional stats show Liverpool handled 308,976 passengers in the month, down 3.8% on January a year ago. Atsms were up 4.6%.

Rolling 12-month total is 4,995,764, up 1.9% on a year ago.

As with all UK airports it has to be remembered that January 2010 was severely affected by bad weather so the comparision will not be quite like for like, given January 2011 was much less affected.

So Liverpool falls through the 5 mppa barrier.

It will be interesting to see how the airport fares this year given the talk in some quarters that Ryanair's rumoured big base at Manchester might adversely affect LPL.

I wonder how many passengers use the airport originating from Manchester. On the otherhand, I wonder how many passengers the airport looses to Manchester?

CAA Passenger Stats for March 2012

A total of 351,159 passengers used Liverpool John Lennon Airport during March 2012 down -10.5% on the same month last year.

Rolling year passengers for the previous twelve months stand at 5,158,662 up 4.3% on the year earlier.

Signs of the bubble bursting at Liverpool perhaps? A drop of 10.5% for March is a sizable reduction and yet neighbouring Manchester airport has seen passengers rise by 13% in March.

It's going to get worse at LPL. In the past few days Ryanair have announced the closure of their routes to Milan, Rimini, Rome and Almeria, together with reductions on other routes this summer.

They blame APD but that doesn't seem to have stopped them starting routes to some of these Italian destinations from nearby MAN.

Also, easyjet base reduced by two aircraft this winter, not clear whether to return for next summer. Add to that rumours of further cutbacks by Ryanair to come, and KLM will be gone soon.

I think the bubble has burst.

A total of 389,476 passengers used Liverpool John Lennon Airport during May 2012 down -19.8% on the same month last year.

Rolling year passengers for the previous twelve months stand at 4,965,791 down -3.4% on the year earlier.

Nearly a 20% reduction in passengers during May. Liverpool is taking a battering from low cost airlines Easyjet and Ryanair who appear to be favouring nearby Manchester airport. The airport will need to take drastic action if it is to regain it's popularity.

It seems as though the so called Peel deal is off.
