easyJet has announced a “massive” growth in passengers for London Luton Airport.

easyJet, Luton’s largest airline, grew its passengers in 2016 by 13% - adding half a million passengers.

More than five million passengers flew with easyJet during the course of the year - 35% more than five years ago, with one million of those passengers travelling for business.

easyJet is also continuing to expand the number of destinations from Luton and since November has added seven new routes which include Valencia, Marseille, Nantes, Stockholm, Isle of Man, Zadar and Biarritz.

Neil Slaven, Commercial Manager at easyJet, said: “As the number one airline at the airport, we will fly over six million passengers this year to and from London Luton, and offer an unrivalled network of over 64 routes. We are committed to doubling passengers over the next ten years,”
