Work underway on £4m LJLA departure lounge upgrade

Work on a £4 million refurbishment programme at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) has begun.

The airport’s departure lounge will be revamped as part of the work to include a reconfigured space for new and existing shops, new washroom facilities, large flight information screens and new seating.

The latest phase of redevelopment, which is expected to be completed in June 2017, will bring the lounge in line with other areas of the terminal which have undergone similar improvements over the last 18 months.

Earlier this year the airport completed the first phase of terminal improvements having invested £2.5m in a number of new and improved facilities aimed at enhancing the customer experience.

David Taylor, LJLA’s interim commercial manager says: “We are looking to create a real wow factor for passengers as we welcome them into the departure lounge, further enhancing the customer experience and building on the really positive passenger feedback following the completion of the first phase of terminal improvements earlier this year.”

“The aim is to create a memorable and unique shopping experience for our passengers by providing facilities that appeal to the various passenger demographics that we have using the airport. Bringing well-known recognised brands here shows the progress we have made in recent years and by providing a wider choice for our growing numbers of passengers.”
