Luton Airport progress

With a £110m investment programme well under way Luton Airport is making real progress.

Rather like London Bridge station, to which it is railwise connected, there are going to be problem days, but persevere.  The results look promising.  And do take heed of easyJet’s warning to passengers.  Get there early.

In the short-term five more UK Border Control e-gates have been added, increasing this facility by 50%.  They are virtually ready for commission well in time for the Christmas rush.

The first extensions to Pier A (providing more space for boarding) are due to be in operation later this month and likewise the new multi-storey short-term car park but it is something of a walk along designated pathways.  Even when fully complete early in the new year it will still be a bit of a trudge via a high level walkway, but under cover.  Could a travellator be laid on top?

Work on the dual carriageway into the terminal area is progressing and looks like it might be complete by the end of February.  The estimated finish date for the main terminal extension is Q4 of 2017. The steel frame is almost complete. A Christmas present for passengers at the end of next year?
