Luton Airport caters for record 13 million passengers

More than 1.1 million people flew through London Luton Airport in April 2016, representing a 17% increase in passenger numbers compared with the same month last year. The figures also mean that the UK airport has catered for more than 13 million passengers in the past 12 months for the first time in its history. April also marked 25 consecutive months of passenger growth at the airport.

Earlier this month, the airport announced its plans to build a £200m (US$290m) mass passenger transit (MPT) link to connect the rail station with the terminal. The link will replace the existing shuttle bus and cut journey times from London St Pancras to less than 30 minutes.

Nick Barton, CEO of London Luton Airport, said, “As we await a decision on a new runway in the Southeast, Luton Airport continues to go from strength to strength. The airport is being transformed by our £110m (US$160m) investment, while the announcement of the new MPT link will make accessing the airport easier than ever for passengers.

“At the same time, whether you’re a holidaymaker or business passenger, our strong relationships with our airline partners are allowing us to deliver more frequent flights to a wider variety of destinations than ever before.”
