Luton becomes first London airport to return to normal schedule

Luton Airport became the first in London to begin operating flights at full capacity following the disruption caused by the volcanic ash cloud.

Normal services begin operating on Thursday (April 22nd), two days after flight restrictions were lifted. The airport had been operating at 70 percent the previous day.

Glyn Jones, London Luton’s managing director, said the airport’s first priority is the well-being of passengers and to provide them with "the most efficient service possible".

"We are delighted to be able to see almost 100 percent of our programme operating," he commented.

"People should now contact their airline to rebook cancelled flights."

In a further boost for affected passengers, the airport has confirmed that those who have paid overstay charges at its car parks will have the charges waived, as long as they can provide proof of car park booking.

Meanwhile, Romanian airline Blue Air commenced cheap flights to Bucharest, Sibiu and Bacau from London Luton last month.
