Luton transformation begins

With a new CEO appointed, new owners and new Motorway access, Luton Airport (LLA) has signalled the start of a £100m transformation programme by unveiling an innovative video update of its future.

The redevelopment will increase capacity to 18m passengers per year and bring about a raft of improvements including a major redesign of the terminal to create what it calls “a quick, efficient, friendly and convenient passenger experience”.  Planned are new shopping and eating options and the development of a futuristic executive lounge which will include a spa. 

Commenting on the announcement, Clive Condie, Chairman of the airport, said: “The investment from our shareholders Aena and Ardian is proving to be transformational for LLA.  Our ambition is to increase our capacity to 18m passengers per year while putting the customer at the heart of everything we do."

easyJet is the largest airline at Luton.  Sophie Dekkers, Director – UK Market, easyJet, said: “London Luton Airport is our spiritual home and remains our head office base.  The transformation of the airport was a key factor in our commitment earlier this year to double our passenger numbers at London Luton Airport over the next 10 years and we have ambitious plans for growth which will result in an even greater range of business and leisure destinations for our passengers.”  http://youtu.be/afZIJxLaPAE   www.london-luton.co.uk
