Liverpool John Lennon Airport
Liverpool John Lennon Airport is an international airport serving the city of Liverpool and the North West of England. Just over 5 million passengers passed through the airport in 2010, making it the tenth busiest airport in the United Kingdom.
It was 2002 when the airport was renamed in honor of John Lennon. A 7 ft tall bronze statue of the local icon 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”.
The Airport is only 7 miles from Liverpool city centre.
