Does Liverpool still have any Royal Mail flights?
I think that all went to EMA...or by road. Long time ago now. I think the post office building has gone too. Used to be lots of Shorts 330s and 360s late at night / early morning . Various operators.
TNT also operated a B727 and BAe 146 to Cologne and Luton.

Still cargo seems to be returning again the AN 42 are still in and out.

Across in Yorkshire we had a program called "Close Up North" which featured Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Humberside and Newcastle airports and the future prospects for each of the airports. For Liverpool I seem to recall it featuring the "hub & Spoke" mail operation. The airport looked so vibrant back then. I'm guessing it still is even without the Royal Mail operation. Still it's sad it came to an end.

It was ...but it was all at night mainly in the early hours to be honest I never saw the postal ops...too late at night. But you are talking also of the days pre Easyjet when you can only fly across the Irish Sea to IOM BFS and DUB plus LHR on a regular basis. The terminal building was much smaller then and we weren't processing 5M passengers in those days.

There was also newspaper flights to IOM and BFS but again this must be so much less these days.
