June has been a busy month for LJLA – read the highlights here…
Changes Inbound For Airport Parking
After the recent Consultative Committee meeting, which takes place on a quarterly basis, there have been some significant changes to the way that the Liverpool John Lennon Airport car parking works. The Consultative committee, a group of representatives from several public and private organisations that oversee alterations to the day-to-day functioning of the airport, have received feedback from the general public in regards to the on-site car parking services.
The price for the Express drop off area has been raised from £2 to £3, an increase which has so far not raised any eyebrows. In response to customers’ comments, the duration of time that cars are permitted to park up at the the Free Drop Off point has been doubled from 20 minutes to 40 minutes – this change has made LJLA one of a very few airports that offers any form of free car parking to their customers.
Friends of Liverpool Airport Open To New Members
The Friends of Liverpool Airport, an organisation created to promote interest and good favour towards the airport is currently looking for new members! In addition to representing the airport at certain events and conferences, the FoLA also offer their help on a volunteering basis to the airport. If you’ve ever flown through the airport or have simply come to visit it, you’ll have no doubt seen one of the 400 members assisting customers in some way.
LJLA is unique in being one of the few international airports that has an active group of people supporting them. Set up in 1980 at the suggestion of Honorary President Ken Dodd, the FoLA are always looking for more members to join their ranks. Membership costs as little as £10 for a year and includes a subscription to the group’s magazine (electronic only) that is released on a quarterly basis. Pay £25 and you can get a full year’s subscription to the full colour magazine, filled with stories and news all about the airport.
LJLA Has Vacancies!
