Austrian airline Laudamotion is to become the latest airline to operate from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, having announced plans to commence a twice weekly service from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) to Vienna, starting in Winter 2019.
Flights will commence on 28 October operating at convenient flight times on Mondays and Fridays using Airbus A320 aircraft.
Laudamotion has bases in Vienna, Innsbruck, Stuttgart, Dusseldorf and Palma and currently only operate to London Stansted in the UK.
This is LJLA’s first scheduled service to Vienna and is the latest new destination to be served direct from the North West’s faster, easier, friendlier airport. It will be the third new airline to be announced in Liverpool during the last 9 months.
Paul Winfield, Director of Aviation Development for LJLA commented: “For Laudamotion to choose Liverpool to be their first UK regional airport to operate from, is a tremendous achievement for the Airport and shows how attractive operating from here is becoming for some of Europe’s top airline’s.
“Vienna is another new destination to be served from Liverpool and we expect this to be popular with both the leisure traveller and the region’s business community.”
Andreas Gruber, Managing Director of Laudamotion added: “Our routes work because we have the right offer for price-sensitive customers. In particular, with our new City Shuttle routes, I’m sure to increase the traffic with our new non-stop service to and from Vienna.”
