Football Charters:

Both Liverpool and Everton regularly appear in European competitions. The charter flights out for our teams and those of their opponents inbound for their away legs generate valuable income for the airport. Occasionally, other league clubs including Tranmere Rovers and some of the Lancashire clubs, and their opponents, also use the airport. Clubs also use air travel for pre-season friendly matches and for some of the longer distance League matches.

The flights also produce some interesting aircraft for enthusiasts to view.
