London Luton Airport (LLA) in the UK has been recognized by the British Chambers of Commerce as a UK Business Hero.
The airport received the recognition thanks to its re-deployment of staff to the East of England Ambulance Service. More than 100 members of LLA staff volunteered with local community organizations and donated surplus food items to homeless charities.
The UK Business Hero stamp was created by the British Chambers of Commerce to recognize businesses and individuals that have gone the extra mile to support local communities, innovate and meet new demands during the Covid-19 pandemic.
LLA’s CEO Alberto Martin, said, “Everyone across the country has been profoundly affected by this pandemic. Although the aviation industry has not been exempt from this, we wanted to make sure we were playing our part and supporting the local community as much as we could. This award is a real testament to the inspirational efforts of everyone in the LLA family, and I’d like to extend my thanks to everyone at the airport who has gone the extra mile.”
