Luton Airport has strong start to 2019

Posted 12 February 2019 · Add Comment

London Luton Airport (LLA) has recorded an increase in passengers of 12.9% compared to January last year, with 1.1 million passengers travelling through the airport last month.



In what was a record-breaking January for the airport, popular destinations for winter breaks included Geneva and Lisbon, while Amsterdam and Bucharest continued to be the busiest routes overall.

Following the official opening of the newly-upgraded terminal in December 2018, passengers are now able to benefit from improvements such as the addition of 3,000 seats and 48 new shops and restaurants in a retail and dining area that has doubled in size. This includes a range of luxury and high street stores, such as Chanel, which offers an exclusive range for LLA’s passengers, and Oliver Bonas’ first-ever airport store. A second, new executive lounge is also set to open later this year, offering an extra space for passengers to relax.

Alberto Martin, CEO of LLA, said: “January has been an exciting start to 2019, as we continue to welcome more passengers than ever before. Our redevelopment has been designed to make journeys more enjoyable and more comfortable, which our passengers are now experiencing.”
