London Luton Airport

2015 was a record year for London Luton Airport (LLA). 12.3 million passengers used the airport, an increase of 16.9% on 2014. In the last 12 months four new airlines joined the airport and 20 new routes were launched.

In total 16 airlines operate to over 120 destinations across Europe, Africa, Asia and North America. The airport directly employs over 600 people and indirectly supports almost 9,000 jobs, making it a major economic contributor for the UK and local region. Once complete, the transformation is forecast to increase the airport’s annual economic impact by £1 billion, to £2.3 billion per annum, and create over 10,000 additional jobs by 2030.

Transforming LLA into a leading London airport

LLA is now undergoing a significant transformation through a £110 million investment by its operator; a consortium of AENA and Ardian, the former being the world’s leading airport operator. The development is the biggest in the airport’s 78 year history. It will significantly improve the passenger experience and increase annual capacity by 50%, from 12 to 18 million by 2020. The airport’s development began in 2014 when a new brand identity was unveiled marking the ambition to transform LLA into one of the leading airports serving London and the surrounding regions. Now underway, the physical improvements will include an expanded and modernised terminal building and improved access by rail and road.
