The History of Liverpool Airport
Liverpool John Lennon Airport is one of the oldest international airports in the UK. Its original name was Speke Airport and it commenced scheduled flights in 1930 but was officially opened in the summer of 1933. During the thirties, as the high demand for Irish Sea crossings caused air traffic from Liverpool to boom, a passenger terminal and aircraft storage facilities were constructed.
During the Second World War, the airport was used as a testing facility for military aircraft, which were built in nearby Rootes and Lockhead and was then known as RAF Speke. Speke was witness to what is considered to be the fastest air combat "kill" in the Battle of Britain and possibly of all time. Squadron Leader Denys Gillam took off in his Hawker Hurricane from Speke to be confronted by a Junkers II passing across him. As his undercarriage was still retracting his shot the enemy fighter down and the moment was caught in a painting by Robert Taylor called "Fastest Victory". The airport was held for military use until 1961 when it was handed over to the local authority.
In 1966 a new runway was opened on a new site to the south of the existing airfield and this enabled the airport to open for business on a twenty four hour basis. In the mid 1970s control of the airport was transferred to Merseyside County Council from Liverpool Corporation and then ten years later to the five Merseyside councils following the abolition of the Merseyside County Council.
In 1986 a new passenger terminal was constructed on the site, adjacent to the runway on the southern airfield site and shortly after, the original 1930s building was closed.
The original terminal building, which was famously seen on old television footage with its terraces paced with Beatles' fans, was abandoned for over a decade after it was closed but it has recently been renovated and expanded to become the Marriott Liverpool South Hotel, preserving its Grade II listed art deco style.
> In 1990 the airport changed hands again with British Aerospace taking a 76% shareholding in the new company and after this, £4 million was put into the airport to further develop the site and improve passenger facilities.
In 1997 Peel Holdings plc bought 76% of the airport shares, with the other 24% being acquired in 2001, making the airport at wholly-owned subsidiary of Peel Holdings Ltd. Whilst this was going on work on a £42.5 million modern passenger terminal began, tripling the size and increasing capacity and this development was completed in 2002.
It was in 2002 that the decision was made to rename the airport in honour of the late John Lennon, a founding member of Liverpudlian band The Beatles. A 7ft bronze statue of the local icon proudly stands overlooking the check-in hall and on the roof is painted the airport's motto, a line from Lennon's song "Imagine". "Above us, only sky."
