London Luton Airport Operations Limited has invited chamber members to fill in a survey before its own consultation on its vision for the future of the airport ends on Friday (October 12).
The Chamber, based in Kimpton Road, Luton, just a stone’s throw from the airport, believes the transport hub is ‘one of the region’s most important assets’. It is, the chamber says on its LinkedIn page, a ‘key economic growth driver for Bedfordshire and, indeed, the sub-region’.
Through approximately £100 million of proposed new investment, the operator intends to increase the capacity of the airport to 18 million passengers per year, which it believes will generate approximately £218 million in added annual value to the local economy, as well as create 4,500 additional jobs.
The airport intends to submit a planning application later in the year, and the chamber is strongly urge its members to take part in an online survey, which asks people who take part three questions.
