London Luton Airport has been making a remarkable success since last year. The rate of the passengers is increasing day by day and it is very important to manage all the travellers in future. There is a need for expansion at London Luton Airport to facilitate the passengers. The continuous growth of the passengers not only increasing at the airport, but also the Parkway station. Therefore, Luton Borough Council requested the Department of Transport to add more fast trains at Parkway station.
There is only one East Midlands train that stops an hour at Luton Parkway Station on route to London Pancras. The authorities of London Luton Airport are discussing with the Department of Transport to raise the frequency of stop offs at Parkway station to four per hour.
In a report Robin Porter, the Director of Commerical and Transformation Services said:
If these changes and expansions will not carry out properly, then London Luton Airport will suffer a significant commercial disadvantage in comparison to the other London airports.
The Chief Executive of London Luton Airport said:
“As our plans to improve the airport and increase capacity continue, so does the need to create strong public transport connections. Fast East Midlands Train services from London St Pancras already reach Luton Airport Parkway in 20 minutes once every hour. Our future vision, as part of the upcoming rail franchise, is to increase this to four fast trains per hour to improve connectivity and significantly increase the number of people using rail to access the airport. The council’s support for such a vision highlights the improvements that an increase in fast trains would bring to the local and surrounding communities.”
