Furthermore, their branding is proudly placed pitch-side, too, on the edge of the north stand next to the tunnel where the teams run out for kick-off.

Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) is one of the United Kingdom’s longest-established operational airports and has welcomed millions of passengers since officially opening on July 1,1933.

Director of aviation development at the airport, Paul Winfield, said: “This is a great opportunity, not only to partner Merseyside’s airport with Merseyside’s rugby club but to do so in a year where both are marking milestone anniversaries – as we celebrate our 90th birthday and Saints toast 150 years.

“It also allows us to better connect and communicate with the people of St Helens, many of whom travel from Liverpool John Lennon Airport.”
