Easyjet used to operate a LTN service i believe but it was scrapped due to APD.

As a reader from the other side of the pond (actually the other side of the pond and then south of the border), I'm fascinated by this discussion, following along with a map as I read the comments. Thanks all.

Isn’t MAN airport quite easIily in reach from Liverpool by train? If you live north of the city centre and were to drive, I believe MAN airport is maybe 15-20 mins more is it not? I’d say MAN airport’s catchment area overlaps greatly with LPL’s meaning perhaps it makes sense to focus and use the crew, aircraft and slots only at the larger airport vs needing double the resources?

Yep, I live north of the city and it’s around half an hours drive to LPL or 50 minutes to MAN (I happen to live very close to the motorway). It’s also easier to get to MAN via public transport than LPL from Liverpool!? Direct train vs train and a bus!

Usually when looking for flights I check both MAN and LPL, MAN is cheaper 75% of the time.
