Liverpool John Lennon Airport (IATA: LPL, ICAO: EGGP) is one of Europe's fastest growing airports, having more than quintupled its annual passenger numbers from 875,000 in 1998 to over 4.4 million in 2005. In recent years this airport has been overtaken by huge crowds of people wanting to fly from Liverpool airport. The parking facilities have not kept pace with the demand, and so the latest plans are for this airport to have a new multi-story car park, which will be able to hold up to 869 spaces. Plans are also in the works for a new 3* hotel with 150 bedrooms for people who wish to stay before their long journey. The airport is located 7 miles south east of the centre of Liverpool, England, adjacent to the Mersey Estuary.
