The holiday starts at the Airport as ‘Happy Hour Fridays’ come to Liverpool Airport
Thursday 28, October 2010
In an initiative aimed at bringing the fun back to air travel, Liverpool John Lennon Airport (JLA) are to trial free entertainment, giveaways and flight prizes for passengers travelling through the Airport this Friday, 29th October 2010.
A DJ from world renowned Liverpool nightclub Cream will be on hand from 11am to 7pm, creating a party atmosphere in the Airport Departure Lounge with passengers able to enter a competition for two return tickets courtesy of easyJet, to Brussels, their latest destination to be served from JLA.
A host of retailers throughout the Airport will also be joining in the fun with staff in costumes offering various customer discounts, food and drink tastings and even complimentary hand massages and mini makeovers to help passengers look good as well as feel good ahead of their flights.
The Airport hopes to roll out a year round program of similar initiatives.
Matthew Thomas, Commercial Director for Peel Airports commented, “Friday is often the day of the week when passengers set off on a few days holiday or a weekend break and we want to give our passengers a departure to remember by putting the fun back in to travelling from JLA on Fridays.
We have made a number of big improvements at the airport recently, with work in the departure lounge now nearing completion. This initiative will help to showcase these improvements and is a way of saying thank you to passengers for choosing to fly from here, giving them the opportunity to experience a range of goods and services from various retailers throughout the airport. “
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
