Originally known as Speke Airport, it was re-dedicated to the memory of John Lennon in 2001.

It was the first British Airport to be named after an individual.

It has grown into a popular International Terminal, with many attractions for the Beatles’ fans, including artwork, shopping destinations, and a prominent sculpture at the entrance. Many people go there just for the photo op. Even if they are not travelling.

On the roof is painted the airport’s motto, a line from Lennon’s song “Imagine”: “Above us, only sky.” In 2005 the Yellow Submarine, a large-scale work of art, was installed on a traffic island at the entrance to the airport. A permanent exhibition of The Beatles in India’s photographs made in 1968 at the Ashram of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, (founder of the Transcendental Meditation technique), by Paul Saltzman can be seen above the retail units in the departure lounge.

It also runs charter flights to several remote destinations, so if you are feeling adventurous, and maybe have won the lottery, give them a call and see what they have to offer.
