Brilliant Blackpool!

May 05, 2006 at 00:00

Blackpool Airport is today celebrating the news that it is officially the fastest growing regional airport in the UK.

Passenger numbers are soaring at a staggering 42 per cent higher compared to the previous year and it doesn't take a genius to work out that the ever increasing destinations from Blackpool will continue to play a huge part in this success story.

Flights to Alicante, Murcia, Palma & Belfast are all currently serving people of The North West wanting to head for the sun or try a city break from their local airport. In turn people are also booking in their droves to visit the seaside resort of Blackpool – the one place you really do feel like a child again as soon as your feet hit the sandy beaches and candy floss is thrust in your hand!

With flights commencing to Tenerife, The Algarve (Faro) & Amsterdam in October, plus Summer 2007 flights on sale already, we'll continue to play our part in helping Blackpool airport reach for the skies.
