_Liverpool John Lennon Airport has announced that a new airline offering a new route will add to its list of 60 destinations next year.
Europe’s third largest low cost airline, Norwegian, will commence a three times weekly service from Liverpool to Copenhagen, starting on April 5, 2013, with a lunchtime departure from Liverpool at 13:55 and one way fares from £33.
