400 jobs on offer at London Luton Airport.....

London Luton Airport is recruiting for 400 new roles across the airport as February’s passenger figures indicate a promising recovery for the airport, and the Government announces an end to all covid travel restrictions.

London Luton Airport is one of the UK’s busiest airports despite Covid-19, carrying 58 million passengers in the past five years. The airport is operated by a consortium of which the majority shareholder is AENA, the world’s largest airport operator, and AMP Capital, a specialist global investment manager. Airlines include easyJet, Wizz Air, Ryanair, Tui, Blue Air, FlyOne, Sun Express and El Al.

A busy ski season and half-term city breaks boosted LLA’s passenger count last month with a total of 611,00 passengers using LLA in February. Geneva, Amsterdam and Belfast topped the most popular destinations, followed by Edinburgh, Glasgow and Paris.

Ahead of an anticipated busy summer, boosted by the announcement all remaining covid travel restrictions are to be lifted on Friday, the airport is recruiting for 400 new roles. Jobs available include aviation security officers, fire fighters and retail and hospitality staff and positions related to the Direct Air-Rail Transit (DART) system, which will link the airport terminal with Luton Airport Parkway railway station.

Alberto Martin, CEO of LLA said: “We are confident that demand for air travel is returning given the busy half term period, and will only increase further with the relaxation of the final travel restrictions at the end of this week. Though reaching our pre-pandemic figures will be tough, flying to the UK is now as easy as it was before, removing a key barrier to booking for many passengers. Hiring key staff will be essential to accommodate this anticipated uplift, and we look forward to recruiting ahead of what we know will be a busy summer season.”

Passengers travelling by rail can reach the airport via a half-hourly express rail service which operates between London and Luton Airport Parkway. In addition, work is nearly complete on a £225 million light rail system linking the airport with Luton Airport Parkway station. The project is being delivered by the airport owners, Luton Rising – a company owned by Luton Council.
