London’s Luton Airport marked their 43rd consecutive month of growth after reporting 3% rise for October 2017. More than 1.4 million passengers used the facility to fly to the 130 destinations served by the airport.
The airport is currently undergoing a significant redevelopment that will take over £150 million in investment. The aim is to increase the annual capacity of Luton by 50% so that it can handle 18 million passengers by 2020.
Nick Barton, CEO of London Luton Airport, commented that it is an exciting time for the airport as it welcomes more passengers, adds new routes and improves the hospitality for the travelers passing through it. The airport is ready to serve even more business and leisure travelers.
This winter there will be an additional flight from Luton Airport to Tel Aviv operated every Sunday by El Al. In the summer Thomas Cook will add eight new destinations that include Palma. Dalaman and Corfy, and Sun Express will start serving Antalya and Ankara.
