The inauguration of a third daily Flybe service between Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) and Amsterdam Schiphol has been completed.Mark Povall, LJLA’s air service development director, presented Lotte Harbers, aviation marketing director for Schiphol Airport, with a special ‘Superlambanana’ gift on behalf of Liverpool to mark the occasion. The ‘Superlambanana’ is a famous 17 ft tall sculpture located in Liverpool city centre.Flybe’s three flights per day between Liverpool and Amsterdam depart early morning, lunchtime and late afternoon so passengers can make onward long-haul connections through Amsterdam to destinations including Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Shanghai.“Flybe is delighted to play a part in making it possible for Liverpool customers to access the world through Amsterdam and, just as importantly, make it easier for the rest of the world to come to Liverpool,” remarked Flybe’s chief commercial officer, Paul Simmons. “We already have a number of codeshare and interline arrangements with long-haul carriers that, in the future, have the potential to benefit passengers even further.”The airline recently committed to further expansion from Liverpool by announcing a new daily service to Edinburgh which starts at the end of October. It will also be increasing capacity on its existing Isle of Man and Belfast City services with an additional daily departure to both destinations, taking the total number of flights to and from Liverpool by Flybe to approximately 150 per week.
