Project Description


We are delighted to announce this year’s sponsor of Excellence in Manufacturing (under 50 employees and 50+ employees) – Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

Liverpool John Lennon Airport currently handles over 5 million passengers per year with flights to over 70 destinations in the UK and across Europe.

With a growing range of destinations bringing increased passenger numbers, 1 million more passengers now choose to use Liverpool compared to four years ago.

It is the Faster, Easier, Friendlier Airport of choice for passengers from across the region and is recognised for its relaxed, hassle free environment and best in class operational performance including the UK’s only 5-star airport rating for flight punctuality, complimented by recent investments to improve passenger facilities and deliver an enhanced customer experience, with positive passenger feedback now at an all-time high.

The airport is also one of the area’s major employers, attracting inward investment and bringing significant tourism benefits, helping to boost the region’s economy. LJLA is a significant driver of prosperity in the region and the North West and North Wales as a whole, bringing an estimated £250 million per annum in GVA and supporting 6,000 jobs across the Liverpool city region.
