UK to approve Luton expansion?

By Doug Newhouse |

Aena Chairman Jose Manuel Vargas told the Spanish Chamber of Commerce in London last week that the UK Government is expected to approve a capacity increase of up to 18m passengers a year at Luton Airport.
He said expansion of the airport and its runway would require investment of $164.6m (£98m) and Aena is ready to commence work as soon as the final approvals are given.
Aena acquired Luton Airport – London’s fourth-biggest airport with 9.7m passengers – in 2013. It currently has a capacity for up to 12m passengers a year.
