London Luton has celebrated its busiest-ever July, as 1.67 million passengers travelled through the airport.
This marks a 3.1 per cent increase compared with last year, making July the 18th consecutive month that over one million passengers have passed through LLA.
The start of the busy summer period coincided with LLA’s 80th anniversary – the airport celebrated throughout the month with staff, passengers, and the local community.
Celebrations included the launch of a limited-edition birthday Campari cocktail from Oriel Grande Brasserie inspired by Lorraine Chase, and goodie bags and macarons for passengers.
Nick Barton, chief executive of LLA, said: “July was a milestone month for LLA, as we celebrated 80 years of growth and reached the next stage of our £160 million redevelopment.
“Our transformation will mean that passengers can enjoy smoother and quicker journeys, and allow more people to travel to new destinations.
“We look forward to welcoming even more passengers throughout the rest of the summer period as people get away for a well-earned break.”
