Liverpool John Lennon Airport (IATA: LPL, ICAO: EGGP) is one of Europe's fastest growing airports, having almost quadrupled its annual passenger numbers from 875,000 in 1998 to just over 3.1 million in 2003. The airport is located 7 miles south east of the Centre of Liverpool, England, adjacent to the Mersey Estuary.

The Airport
Liverpool John Lennon Airport is one of the UK's oldest operational airports. Speke Airport - its original name - started scheduled flights in 1930, however was 'officially' opened in the summer of 1933. In the thirties, as air traffic from Liverpool was beginning to 'take-off' with high demand for Irish Sea crossings, a passenger terminal and aircraft storage facilities were built.

During World War II, the airport was militarised as RAF Speke.

In 1966, a new runway was opened. It enabled the airport to be open for business around the clock and is to this day. Under the control of five new Merseyside councils, a new passenger terminal was built.

In 2000, work on a £42.5 million modern passenger terminal began, tripling the size and increasing capacity. 2002 saw the airport being renamed in honour of the late John Lennon, a founding member of Liverpudlian band The Beatles, twenty years after Lennon's death. A 7ft bronze statue of the local icon proudly stands overlooking the check-in hall.

On the roof is painted the airport's motto, a line from Lennon's song "Imagine": "Above us, only sky"
