    Is'nt there a website which lists the Bizjet movements as above? I can't remember the address but sure I used to check when I went to Luton in April.

    I see the England team flew out of Luton today on Gainjet 737-400 "Long Range" SX-ATF to Paris LBG. Luton seems to be England's departure point whenever they head to tournaments. If I recall correctly, they used a 767 to fly from Luton to Brazil for the 2014 World Cup.

    It also flies from Manchester. Typical routing, such as today's one, is MAN-LTN-XXX. MAN also saw the team fly back after the World Cup.

    It drops off the Northern contingent.

    Apparently this is for the Grand Prix at Silverstone.

    In other news, LTN has just had its busiest day ever - 50,564 passengers. If it handled that number every day, that would add up to 18,455,860 passengers per year. So LTN has already passed its intended future daily capacity limit by a long way, four years before the building work is due to be finished, and we've not even reached peak summer...

    I had the misfortune to fly from Luton once and it really was the most awful airport I've ever used. Short of knocking it down and starting again I don't see how it can be improved to comfortably handle the numbers they are now seeing. I will never go near the place again.

    It will be interesting to see how LTN passenger figures pan out over the coming year because the busiest route (Copenhagen) is very much under threat.

    It looks like Ryanair have pulled a typical move by coming on LTN-CPH to compete with easyJet and slashing fares to destroy yield (but attracting 700,000+ pax in 2016), and now easyJet look to have canned LTN-CPH for S17.

    Now it seems 3 of the 4 daily Ryanair LTN-CPH flights will move to STN this year, and Beziers, Cagliari and Nîmes may also be moved to STN.

    Some LTN followers on the dried plum see route cuts as a welcome relief :confused:

    Aviation Minister congratulates London Luton Airport on 80th anniversary
    News • Jul 16, 2018 13:00 BST
    [​IMG]
    Aviation Minister Baroness Sugg has offered her congratulations to London Luton Airport (LLA) as it marks its 80th birthday.

    LLA first opened its doors in 1938 as a municipal airport before being used as an RAF base during World War II. Today, it is the UK’s fifth-largest airport, with 15.8 million passengers choosing to travel through in 2017. Over the past 80 years, more than 250 million passengers have used the airport.

    LLA is also nearing the completion of its £160 million redevelopment project, which will upgrade the terminal building and increase annual capacity to 18 million by 2020.

    Improvements to the passenger experience include a new boarding pier with eight new boarding gates, and an expanded security search area to help speed up passengers’ journeys. The amount of retail space has also more than doubled with more than 30 new shops and restaurants opening in the terminal since the start of the year, including Chanel, Oliver Bonas, Ted Baker and Hugo Boss.

    Baroness Sugg, Aviation Minister, said: “The opening of LLA’s newly-expanded and upgraded terminal later this year is a fitting culmination of its eightieth birthday celebrations. Aviation is a sector which is hugely important to the UK economy, and sustained investment is vital to ensure that we maintain a leading position on the international stage.

    “I would like to take this opportunity to wish LLA a very happy birthday.”

    Nick Barton, CEO of London Luton Airport, said: “LLA has been on an exciting journey over the past eighty years. From humble beginnings as a municipal aerodrome to a world-class international airport today, I am immensely proud of what we have achieved. I would like to thank the Minister for her kind wishes, and look forward to welcoming her to the airport once our redevelopment is complete.”
