03/05/12 Easyjet Calls for Long Term Imrovements at Luton Airport

Easyjet has today published a Strategic Vision for London Luton Airport (where the airline has it's headquarters and is the airports largest operator), following on from the recently published master plans from Luton Borough Council and London Luton Airport Operations Limited (LLAOL).
The airline would like to see:

Easier access with more fast trains to and from London, removal of the charge on the shuttle bus between the station and the airport, and deliverance of the proposed junction 10a improvements which would give a smoother and quicker flow of traffic from the motorway to the airport.

IMproved security area to reduce waiting times in the terminal.

More aircraft stands to eliminate the need to bus passengers to aircraft.

Improved taxiways to improve aircraft movements.

Carolyn McCall, easyJet Chief Executive said:
"Our mission is to make travel easy and affordable. Itís clear that at present London Luton Airport is not as good as it could be, and it should be positioned to play a bigger part in overall airport capacity in London and the South East. We therefore broadly welcome the infrastructure development plans from the Council and London Luton Airport Operations Limited."
