Momentous milestone for LLA

Momentous milestone for LLA

London Luton Airport (LLA) hit a momentous milestone in September as the rolling annual total of passengers using the airport passed 14 million for the first time.

The airport recorded its 30th consecutive month of passenger growth in September with a 15.6% increase compared with the same period last year. In total, a record 1.4 million passengers chose to fly from LLA last month.

Nick Barton, CEO of LLA, said: "Reaching this huge milestone is a fantastic endorsement from our passengers as they continue to choose to fly with us.

"Demand for air travel at LLA is at an all-time high which is an indicator of the timely nature of our transformation project.

"We’re working hard to deliver our £110m redevelopment and create an airport that exceeds our passengers’ expectations."

To meet this continued demand LLA is currently undertaking a £110m redevelopment project which will increase annual capacity by 50% to 18 million passengers by 2020.
