It has been 27 months now that the number of passengers travelling through London Luton airport is increasing. In the month of June, a total of 17.7% increase was seen in the number of passengers, as compared to the same month of last year. Overall, 1.43 million passengers travelled through the airport.
To serve the customers of the airport in a more efficient way, the airport authorities have a plan to invest £110 million, in order to make the airport better than before. When this redevelopment plan will be executed, the annual capacity will be increased from 12 million to 18 million, which is the half of the original capacity.
With all these redevelopment plans, new airlines are also launching flights from the airport to different locations. The only thing which airport authorities need to consider is increasing the space for car parking at Luton airport.
Nick Barton, CEO of LLA, said: “With a decision on future runway capacity put on hold LLA remains the only London airport that is expanding capacity to meet rapidly growing demand.
The priority now is to make sure the public which is travelling can easily access our increasing range of destinations and new facilities, giving people more choice and flexibility. That’s why in the build up to the new East Midlands rail franchise we are working hard to secure additional fast train services.”
Everything is happening right for the passengers of London Luton Airport. Increased capacity, redevelopment plan, new flights will help Luton airport deliver quality services to the passengers.
