LONDON - London Luton Airport has submitted an application to Luton Council to change its current annual passenger cap from 18 million to 19 million. The application, which follows a public consultation held in October 2020, seeks to vary five conditions the airport's original planning permission.

The upgrade "will not require any physical changes or new construction at the airport, and the airport will continue to operate within the existing terminal infrastructure," management said. "A full environmental impact assessment has been submitted as part of the application."

London Luton Airport (LLA) remains one of the UK's busiest airports despite the pandemic, carrying 5.4 million passengers in 2020.

"As people start to travel again and the UK's economic recovery begins, we want LLA to be in the best position to continue to support these things," Luton CEO Alberto Martin said. "By submitting this application now, we are preparing the airport for future success and creating reassurance for the thousands of people and businesses who rely on us."
