The new flights mark an expansion of SunExpress’ services from across the UK. The leisure carrier is currently operating 136 flights per week from nine airports in the UK in summer 2024, including Birmingham and Manchester.

Paul Winfield, Aviation Director for LJLA commented, “We are delighted to welcome this new scheduled service with SunExpress, the latest carrier to announce operations from Liverpool. Antalya remains a popular destination from Liverpool and a route with significant scope to grow when comparing capacity to other UK Airports.

 “We look forward to seeing SunExpress begin and grow their services in Liverpool, with passengers from across the North West being given the opportunity to fly to popular destinations from the Faster Easier Friendlier Airport in the North West.”

Bookings for SunExpress flights are now open, with value prices starting from £69.99 per person, including checked baggage. For small additional payments, passengers can upgrade to SunClassic and SunPremium fares with added benefits such as increased baggage allowance, pre-flight seat selection, inclusive onboard meal and the ability to amend bookings without extra charge.
