Published on : Monday, January 14, 2019

London Luton airport welcomed 16.6 million passengers in 2018 which was 5 per cent increase from the previous year.   In December, the airport welcomed over 1.26 million passengers, which is a 19.7 per cent increase from December 2017.

 

 

2018 saw the official opening of LLA 160 million pounds redevelopment project, which will increase capacity by 50 per cent to 18 million by 2020.

 

 

 

The newly-upgraded terminal was opened in December by transport secretary, Chris Grayling, and features 48 new shops and restaurants, including Chanel and Oliver Bonas’ first-ever airport outlet. The transformation also added 3,000 more seats, a new boarding pier and upgraded transport links.

 

 

 

Alberto Martin, chief executive of LLA, said: “Last year was a landmark year for LLA as we welcomed more passengers than ever before, celebrated our 80th anniversary, and opened our newly-upgraded terminal. As we enter the New Year, we will work hard to ensure that the benefits of our transformation are felt by our passengers, staff and the local community in the years ahead.”

 

 

In 2019, passengers will further benefit from the extension of the Oyster and contactless card system on train services between London and the airport.

 

 

The Direct Air Rail Transit will replace the current shuttle bus between Luton Airport Parkway station and the terminal.
