The Limit for JLA; New Research May Help Relieve Amputees of the Pain of Phantom Limbs Penny Fray Reports


Byline: Andy Kelly and Neil Hodgson

FITTINGLY for an airport, it has had more than its fair share of ups and downs.

But Liverpool John Lennon airport will celebrate its 70th birthday today with its future looking extremely rosy. Liverpool airport officially opened in 1933, three years before Gatwick and 13 years before Heathrow's site was chosen.

Since then it has had a chequered history across two different sites. In the dark days of the 1980s, it came perilously close to closure.

But the last five years have been marked by an unpr ecedented turnaround which has seen Liverpool become the country' s fastest growing airport.

And, as the Government' s consultation period on airport expansion ended yesterday, airport officials are confident that there is still scope for further development at the famous Speke site.

Airport spokesman Robin Tudor said: ``We hope and believe there is room for more expansion.

``At the moment we're handling around 3m customers in any 12 month period and by 2006 we want that to be up to4.5m.

``Beyond that, the Government consultation on the future of air travel in the UK suggests we could be handling 8m passeng ers by 2030.

``We actually think that is a little bit conserv ative and think we could be looking at maybe 10-11m in that period.''

As well as playing a key role in helping to regenerate the Merseyside economy, airport leaders are confident JLA will provide a crucial gateway for visitors in the city's Capital of Culture year in 2008.

But while the future looks genuinely bright there are a number of possible clouds on the horizon.

Chief among these is the possibility of the Government intr oducing extra taxes on aviation fuel in response to en vironmental concerns about rapidly increasing flight numbers .

That would hit the economy flight sector -the backbone of Liverpool's recent success -very hard.

Robin Tudor said: ``I think ourselves and other airports recognise the need for balanced growth.

``In terms of extra taxes on fuel, all we would ask for is a level playing field.

``Anything like that should be done across Europe and not just on UK operators. There is already the extra passeng er duty on UK domestic flights which is not paid in other parts of Europe.

``Anything that would be detrimental to low cost operators could hit us in terms of passeng er numbers and growth.'' The Friends of Liverpool Airport have arrang ed various celebrations to mark the airport's 70thbirthday.

A dinner at the Liverpool South Marriott hotel, the con verted original airport terminal, will take place this Friday.

And on Saturday , a vintage DakotaDC3 aircraft will fly in to offer pleasure flights over Liverpool.

Luxury car maker Jaguar and the Jaguar Owner' s Club will display past and present models.

It is hoped a vintage bus service will run visitors from the new terminal to the former Speke airport to view the replica Dragon Rapide aircraft standing outside the hotel. …
