A total of 193,935 passengers passed through Luton Airport over the holiday weekend. Good Friday was the busiest day for departures, with 51,103 passengers travelling through the airport.

March marks the 14th consecutive month that over one million passengers have passed through the airport and comes as easyJet and Wizz Air announce six new routes. easyJet will be flying to Palermo and Genoa in Italy, Reus in Spain and Dalaman in Turkey and Wizz Air has announced routes to Bratislava, Slovakia and Bari, Italy.

Fourteen new retail stores have also recently opened at the airport, including Ted Baker and Hugo Boss, while Oliver Bonas chose LLA for its first-ever airport store. A total of 30 new stores are due to open in the terminal by the end of the year as part of LLA’s £160 million redevelopment programme. The transformation includes an expanded terminal providing more seating and new boarding gates.

Nick Barton, CEO of London Luton Airport, said: “This is a really exciting time for the airport, as we come towards the culmination of our transformation and celebrate our 80th anniversary. People can now visit over 130 destinations from LLA (London Luton Airport) and new shops and restaurants mean our growing number of passengers have even greater choice when travelling through the airport.”
