Sumary of Passenger numbers continue to fall at Luton Airport:
- London Luton Airport (LLA) welcomed 1.2 million passengers throughout July and August this year, as people travelled to visit family and friends, whilst holidaymakers took advantage of relaxed travel restrictions during the summer holidays.
- The most popular destinations for passengers travelling through the airport were Palma de Mallorca, Bucharest and Belfast, reflecting the traffic light system.
- Despite the success of the vaccination program, the uncertainty created by changing travel restrictions resulted in a four per cent drop in passenger numbers compared to last summer.
- This includes simplifying the approach to travel through easier and cheaper testing.
