El Al moves 1m passengers at Luton

The millionth passenger to fly through Luton (LTN) with El Al was given a special send-off by the airport last week with a commemorative gift, free flight upgrade and car parking package. All passengers were also treated to kosher cookies on the flight.

The milestone coincides with the airline’s 10th anniversary at LTN following the launch of operations from the airport in 2009. In that time, Tel Aviv has become the fifth most popular destination from Luton.

El Al operates up to 19 departures a week and will operate three different aircraft at LTN in 2019, led by the 289-seat three-class Boeing B777-200. El Al passengers have access to the Fast Track security service at the airport.

LLA chief commercial officer Jonathan Pollard said: “We work closely with our airline partners to ensure our passengers have a great choice of routes and destinations, and we look forward to continuing our partnerships with El Al for many more years.”

El Al managing director for West Europe and Africa Oranit Beit Halachmy added: “It has been a successful decade and our close partnership with LTN has made it possible for us to offer passengers the most convenient travel. Here’s to the next million.”
