Protest group welcomes opportunity to talk to Aena

Members of the Hertfordshire Against Luton Expansion campaign group have given their reaction to news Luton Airport looks set to be sold.

In a statement released today the group said:

Aena is no doubt referring to the planning application submitted in January to double passenger capacity and increase the number of planes by 60%.

Because Luton Airport is so close to big towns with crowded roads and trains, this plan has already met strong headwinds.

We look forward as local stakeholders to consulting with Aena about reducing the already substantial environmental impact, rather than making it worse.
