At around 21:00 on Tuesday 10 October fire broke out in Car Park 2 at Luton Airport, and over 1,400 vehicles were destroyed. Fortunately there was no loss of life.
Things have now returned to near normal with the DART transit between the Parkway Station and the terminal working as normal. Terminal Car Park 1 is open for pre-booked only.
A temporary drop-off zone has been set up in the Mid-Term car park with a shuttle bus service in operation. In practical terms the near terminal parking has been reduced by 50% with the rebuilding likely to take up to two years.
Whilst there is no statement from the airport, or resident airlines, all are clearly delighted that the happening has not affected the running of the DART, which is proving to be a great success.
Speaking to City A.M. Alberto Martin, London Luton’s CEO, said that the new rail transit system has been a ‘gamechanger’ for the airport.
The airport website is being regularly updated and all passengers and airport/airline staff are asked to continuously monitor the website.
