Luton Airport sees record February

Posted 12 March 2019 · Add Comment

Almost 1.2 million passengers travelled through London Luton Airport (LLA) in February 2019, a 13.1% increase on the same month last year and the airport’s busiest February on record.



The busiest routes for the month were Amsterdam, Geneva and Bucharest as more passengers chose to travel from the airport for both business and leisure. Ryanair also announced a new route to Krakow, which will begin flying in October 2019, offering passengers even more choice when flying from LLA.

In addition to new destinations to choose from, passengers travelling from LLA have also benefitted from the expanded retail and dining space within the newly upgraded terminal. The area features 48 new shops and restaurants, from Chanel to Oliver Bonas, and will soon include buffalo mozzarella specialist store Fattorie Garofalo. Travellers will also soon be able to relax in a second executive lounge which will be run by No. 1 Lounges when it opens in April.

Alberto Martin, CEO of LLA, said: “The diversity in destinations that we offer is just one reason why more passengers are choosing to travel from LLA, both for business and leisure.

"Since the opening of our newly upgraded terminal, our passengers have been able to experience a more comfortable journey thanks to the addition of new shops and restaurants, more seats, and new boarding gates.”
