History
The airport was officially opened in 1933 on the grounds of Speke Hall. A distinctive terminal building, control tower, and two large hangars were built.

During WWII it became RAF Speke and Bristol Blenheims, and Handley Page Halifaxes were built here in a shadow factory. Lockheed Aircraft Corporation also assembled many aircraft including Hudsons, and Mustangs which were shipped to Liverpool Docks and flown from here. The airport was also home to the Merchant Ship Fighting Unit.

At the end of the war, civil airline operations resumed and in 1961, the City took ownership from the Ministry of Aviation. In 1966, a new 7,500ft runway was built on a new site to the southeast of the existing airfield. In the 1970s, ownership passed to Merseyside County Council which later became the five Merseyside Councils. In 1986, a new modern passenger terminal was built and the original 1930s buildings were closed shortly after. The old terminal building became a hotel which opened in 2001 and preserved its Grade II Art Deco style and the old apron has been retained in original condition and is also listed. It is now home to several aircraft which are preserved by the Jetstream Club.

In 1990, the airport was privatised, and British Aerospace took a 76% stake, and in 2000, the ownership of the airport passed to Peel Holdings Ltd. In 2002, a modern passenger terminal was completed which tripled passenger capacity. Also, in 2002, the airport was renamed in honour of John Lennon and a bronze statue of him can be found overlooking the check-in hall.

In 2006, the airport began long-haul flights but were abandoned in the next year. In 2007, work was completed on the reconstruction of the main runway and taxiways. April 2014 saw 'The Peel Group' having a 100 per cent ownership of the airport. Future plans include expanding the airport significantly with new terminal buildings and the introduction of permanent long-haul services.
