About.

Our aims and objectives are:

1. To promote the use of, and need for, Liverpool John Lennon Airport. 2. To encourage the preservation, development and improvement of the Airport and its facilities. 3. To educate public opinion and give advice and information about the Airport, the airlines and services offered. 4. To promote civic pride in our local Airport. A quarterly magazine called "09/27" (the runway orientation) is sent out to all members and contains articles of news and other interesting features which, mainly, have a Liverpool John Lennon Airport theme. Members are encouraged to send in articles for the Editor's consideration. It is widely accepted that the original idea of a friends organisation for our Airport came from none other than Liverpool's own comedy genius, Ken Dodd, way back in 1980. To celebrate FoLA's twentieth anniversary, Ken was installed as our Honorary President at a ceremony held on the occasion of our annual dinner in January 2000 and accepted our unique ‘tickling stick’ version of a windsock as his Regalia of Office. Needless to say he is an avid supporter of the Airport and FoLA is delighted to have him as our Honorary President. FoLA is delighted that the former Managing Director of the Airport, Mr Rod Hill, is our Honorary Vice President Members of the Association staff the increasingly popular tours and educational activities offered by the Airport to schools, colleges and other groups by giving presentations at the Airport and elsewhere on the history, activity and services available. From time to time we have the opportunity to take part in events or trips. In the past we have been able to arrange flights on various aircraft including Concorde (gone but not forgotten!), BAe146, DC3 Dakota, Embraer 145, Fokker 50 and Dash 7 by chartering these aircraft. We have also utilised scheduled services for day trips/tours and weekend breaks to such places as Geneva, Chamonix, Lausanne, Isle of Man, Belfast, County Donegal and others using easyJet and Ryanair.
