Liverpool John Lennon Airport has taken home the award for Best Medium-sized UK Airport at the 2019 British Travel Awards which recognised the best performing enterprises in leisure travel and tourism.
Voting for the UK Best Airport Award was based on a public voting system with the winners determined based on the number of consumer votes cast between 1st July and 30th September 2019.
“Liverpool John Lennon Airport is to be congratulated on winning the UK’s Best Medium-sized Airport. Competition was particularly strong this year but ultimately it is the travelling public who decide the winners by voting for the travel companies they consider the best in the business,” said Lorraine Barnes Burton, British Travel Awards’ chief executive. “The British Travel Awards is the largest consumer awards programme in the UK and to win is truly an accolade.”
“We are delighted to win this prestigious award. Liverpool John Lennon Airport is at the Heart of the North West and now serves over 70 destinations offering passengers from across the North West and North Wales a truly Faster, Easier, Friendlier experience,” commented John Irving, CEO of Liverpool John Lennon Airport. “With security process times of under ten minutes and parking to gate in 15 minutes, we offer a family friendly experience for all passengers.”
“This year, we have launched new routes to Vienna, Copenhagen, Guernsey, Varna, Paphos, Corfu and Tenerife, and continue to look to expand our route offering to allow passengers travelling for business or leisure to enjoy a stress-free start to their journey,” Irving added.
Meanwhile, Birmingham Airport won the Best Large UK Airport, and Doncaster Sheffield Airport claimed the title of Best Small-sized UK Airport.
