Czech Airlines is planning to resume its twice weekly summer scheduled service from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, England (LJLA), to Prague, following the success of the first season.

Operating on Mondays and Fridays, the service will commence on 28 March 2016, running through to 28 October.

Czech Airlines commenced flights to Prague from Liverpool for the first time in July, with flights due to continue until the end of their summer schedules in late October.

The airport is starting three more new scheduled routes in the next two months.

"We have invested more than £100 million in LJLA over the last 15 years and have overseen a transformation in the business."

Flybe will inaugurate its service to Amsterdam today and a daily service to Edinburgh later this year. It already operates services to Isle of Man and Belfast City.

Aer Lingus will begin a new double daily service to Dublin connecting to North America in October.

LJLA said that it is looking to expand its route portfolio with existing and new partners even as the airport recorded its seventh consecutive month of growth during August, with year on year passenger growth of 7.24%.
Total passengers for August were over 471,000.

Recently, The Peel Group has announced a five-year investment programme for terminal refurbishment works and expansion of facilities.

The Peel Group CEO Steven Underwood previously said: "We have invested more than £100 million in LJLA over the last 15 years and have overseen a transformation in the business. We will continue to work closely with all the Airport's stakeholders to ensure its continued success."
