London Luton Airport records busiest day in its historyJun 15, 2016
May 27 was the busiest day in the airport’s 78-year history, with a total 50,564 passengers passing through the airport.
To meet sustained customer demand, LLA is investing £110 million to transform the airport. The development will increase capacity by 50%, from 12 to 18 million passengers by 2020 and will include a major redesign of the terminal.
Airport chief executive Nick Barton said: “Our ambitious redevelopment project is crucial for meeting the consistently high levels of demand for air travel we are seeing in the South East – our record-breaking May is testament to this.”
