A massive 150,000 passengers are expected to pass through London Luton Airport for the August Bank Holiday this weekend. As holiday makers look to escape the British weather, figures at Luton show an increase of 4% on passengers from last year.
Passengers will be jetting off in search of the sun at popular destinations such as the Canary Islands, southern France, Greece and Cyprus. Brits will be looking to take advantage of the pound sterling's strong position as they search for cheaper holidays abroad.
Natalie Raper, Luton Airport's marketing director, stated:
"With a constantly expanding network of routes now making up nearly 100 unique destinations, we continue to serve the requirements of both the business and leisure traveller."
