Luton Airport serves 14 million passengers for the first time in its history

London Luton Airport (LLA) reached a major milestone in September 2016 as the rolling annual total of passengers using the airport passed 14 million for the first time.

The airport saw its 30th consecutive month of passenger growth in September with a record 1.4 million passengers passing through the airport, a 15.6% increase compared with the same period last year.

To meet this continued demand LLA is currently undertaking a £110m (US$134m) redevelopment project, which will increase annual capacity by 50% to 18 million passengers by 2020. The airport’s transport links are also being upgraded with a new light rail link planned for 2020, operating between Luton Airport Parkway station and the terminal.

Nick Barton, CEO of LLA, said, “Reaching this huge milestone is a fantastic endorsement from our passengers as they continue to choose to fly with us. Demand for air travel at LLA is at an all-time high, which is an indicator of the timely nature of our transformation project.”
