London Luton Airport reports strong start to 2019

Following the trend set by Heathrow earlier this week, London Luton Airport has recorded an increase in passenger numbers for January.

Some 12.9 per cent more customers passed through the airport compared to January last year, with 1.1 million passengers travelling through the airport last month.

In what was a record-breaking January for the airport, popular destinations for winter breaks included Geneva and Lisbon, while Amsterdam and Bucharest continued to be the busiest routes overall.

Following the official opening of the newly-upgraded terminal in December, passengers are now able to benefit from improvements such as the addition of 3,000 seats and 48 new shops and restaurants in a retail and dining area that has doubled in size.

Alberto Martin, chief executive of London Luton Airport, said: “January has been an exciting start to 2019, as we continue to welcome more passengers than ever before.
