Liverpool John Lennon Airport is situated in South Liverpool and was the first UK airport to be named after an individual when it was rebranded in 2001 as a lasting tribute to the Liverpool born, former Beatle, John Lennon.
The award winning Liverpool South Parkway is the closest rail station to Liverpool John Lennon Airport and is located approximately 2 miles from the airport itself. Transport is available between the airport and the rail station by bus or taxi.
The station is also easily accessible from elsewhere in the country and has efficient links to Manchester, Yorkshire, West Midlands, East Midlands and connections to London Euston services at Runcorn or Crewe. Train operators calling at the station include Merseyrail, Northern Railway, Transpennine Express, London Midland and East Midlands Trains.
Regular Arriva buses operate between Liverpool South Parkway and the airport which include the 500 and the 86A. Travellers to and from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) are now able to take advantage of improved bus links and lower fares to make their journey better than ever.
A fleet of upgraded Arriva double decker buses have been put on the 500 service and deliver improved comfort and even more space for passengers and their luggage. The buses are now in their own distinctive airport livery so they are easily noticeable. All of the buses on the route are equipped with comfortable e-leather seating as well as free Wi-Fi and USB charging so travellers can stay connected on the go. And to keep passengers fully informed of the progress of their journey, a new audio visual announcement system has been installed on all route 500 buses.
In addition to offering a host of improvements, the newly launched service also comes with a cheaper price tag, with ticket prices reduced from £3 to £2. Purchase your bus ticket as an add-on to your train ticket from any Merseyrail station, simply tell the ticket office that you're going to Liverpool Airport.
