ABOUT LONDON LUTON AIRPORT
Marking its 80th anniversary in 2018, London Luton Airport has become a major player in the UK aviation industry.
Passenger demand for air travel in the South East of England, and particularly the London area, continues to grow at a rapid rate and naturally, demand for parking is at an all-time high.
LLA is investing £150 million in a series of initiatives aimed at increasing annual passenger capacity by 50% by 2020.
Currently serving around 15 million passengers a year, London Luton Airport is confident its transformation programme will provide the necessary facilities to deal with burgeoning demand.
Work has also begun on the Direct Air-Rail Transit (DART) project, will will connect LLA directly with central London.
In 2017, over 15.7 million passengers passed through London Luton Airport, making this a new record total and proved its continued growth is on track.
A massive investment programme is currently underway at the airport to support a planned large increase in capacity to 18 million passengers within the next three years.
The investment includes a complete terminal redesign, along with the addition of a luxury private jet terminal. Plans also include an upgraded security area to speed up passenger processing and a doubling of retail space.
The planned increase of passengers will enable London Luton Airport to handle an additional 45,000 flights per year, which amounts to more than 120 additional flights every day. London Luton Airport is headquarters to easyJet, the world's 10th largest airline which has purchased sufficient space for a 20-year expansion plan. London Luton is also an operating base for Thomson Airways.
The airport currently serves 174 destinations and has opened up 22 new routes.
