Luton says prayers

LUTON AIRPORT has opened a multi-faith prayer room.  It is only the second airport in the UK to provide such amenities beyond the security search area – although there are a number of such facilities worldwide.  Open round the clock, to staff and departing passengers, the room has already proved popular and is seeing extensive use.  Rabbi Alan Plancey, Emeritus Rabbi of Elstree and Borehamwood (Orthodox) Synagogue, and many years earlier Luton, is to act  as the airport's honorary Rabbi, Tel Aviv served by both easyJet and El Al.  The prayer room is located on the upper level of the departure lounge, adjacent to the executive lounges.  Passengers can access it via the same entrance.  Prayer mats and faith literature are provided, together with direction of prayer signs for those faiths that require them.  Religious washing facilities  are also available nearby. www.london-luton.co.uk
