Liverpool John Lennon Airport (IATA: LPL, ICAO: EGGP) is an international airport serving the city of Liverpool and North West England. Formerly known as Speke Airport and RAF Speke, the airport is located within the City of Liverpool adjacent to the estuary of the River Mersey some 6.5 NM (12.0 km; 7.5 mi) southeast of the centre of Liverpool, the airport is named after assassinated musician and peace activist John Lennon. Alongside domestic services, there are also regular scheduled flights to dozens of locations across Europe, the Near East and North Africa as well as formerly North America.

Until 2007 (12 years ago) it was one of Europe's fastest growing airports, having increased its annual passenger numbers from 875,000 in 1998 (21 years ago) to 5.47 million. CAA UK airport statistics show that the number of passengers during 2009 (10 years ago) reduced by 8.4% compared with 2008 (11 years ago), to 4.9 million, making Liverpool the tenth busiest airport in the United Kingdom.

Liverpool Airport has a CAA Public Use Aerodrome Licence (Number P735) that allows flights for the public transport of passengers and for flying instruction.

2002 saw the airport being renamed in honour of John Lennon, a founding member of the Liverpudlian group The Beatles (31 pics), twenty-two years after Lennon's death. A 7 ft (2.1 m) 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". In 2005 (14 years ago) the Yellow Submarine, a large-scale work of art, was installed on a traffic island at the entrance to the airport.
