Luton Airport welcomed 1 million passengers in February
London Luton Airport is celebrating welcoming just over a million passengers last month for the 13th consecutive month.
And the milestones don’t end there, as the airport has also opened eight new retail outlets during 2018 already.
New stores open to passengers include prestigious brands such Kurt Geiger, Ted Baker, Rituals and Fiorelli, as well as Oliver Bonas’ first ever airport store.
Enhancing the airport’s retail offering is part of a major redevelopment programme at London Luton, which will see £160 million invested in total.
Designer names Chanel and Hugo Boss are also gearing up to launch retail outlets at the airport imminently.
In fact, the redevelopment of London Luton Airport will see its retail and dining space double.
A total of 1,042,325 passengers travelled through London Luton Airport in February, making it 13th consecutive month the airport has hit this milestone.
Last month, a new premium wine bar, Dubl, opened up at the airport, offering a range of sparkling wines to customers.
Passengers departing out of London Luton will soon be able to feast on French cuisine at the new Oriel Brassierie, due to open in the next few months.
Later this year, the newly extended terminal will open to the public, along with an even wider selection of shops and restaurants, as well as more boarding gates and seating areas.
Work has also begun on a Mass Passenger Transit System, which will connect the airport with Luton Airport Parkway station, linking the airport to central London in just 30 minutes.
Nick Barton, CEO of LLA, said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer people a new and improved choice of shops and restaurants when they travel with us. The fact that so many prominent retailers have chosen to open stores at LLA is further evidence of our transformation into a world class international airport.”
