Reasons To Invest In Luton Airport Car Park Investments –

1.3 Million Passengers Used LLA In April   More than 1.3 million passengers flew through London Luton Airport (LLA) in April, representing a 16.1% increase compared with the same month last year. Having enjoyed over three years of continuous growth, LLA is currently making its biggest ever investment to meet soaring passenger demand and grow the airport’s capacity by 50% to 18 million in the next three years. Last week a major milestone was reached with the opening of a new dual carriageway access road making it quicker and easier to reach the terminal. 3,500 tonnes of tarmac were used in its construction and more than 30,000 m³ of earth had to be moved. The construction of the dual carriageway follows the construction of a 1,700 space multi-storey car park and re-designed bus interchange. As part of the redevelopment, LLA is also doubling the current retail space to include 43 exciting new shops and restaurants including some big name brands. Passengers can now enjoy a bite to eat before their flight at the new Bella Italia restaurant or Auntie Anne’s Pretzels. The latest additions will be joined by FRISKA and Benugo this summer and The Smithfield, a 7,000m² pub and restaurant. But despite being one of the fastest-growing UK airports, LLA remains the only London airport without direct express-style rail services and is calling for timetable changes which will introduce four fast trains per hour from central London as part of the upcoming East Midlands rail refranchising process. Nick Barton, CEO of LLA, said: “The Easter getaway always makes for a busy period at the airport but this year saw record passenger demand. Customers are now starting to see the benefits of our investment, as we transform every area of the airport experience, both in the terminal and off-site through improved transport connections  you can read the original article on the Luton Airport official site…     With the level of investment being put into UK airports it has never been a better time to consider Car Park Investments as a genuine alternative to traditional by to let purchases.

Gatwick coming out on top for the next London runway?

It is past being hot new’s, that there is an on going debate as to the merits of Gatwick verses Heathrow for permission to build a new runway to assist with the economic growth of London. There are many sides to the argument, and it looks like it will rage on for some time to come both for the businesses, the politicians and those living near to the proposed locations at both airports. Above it all, it does seem that Gatwick may just be moving ahead in popularity with the recent new Mayor of London Sadiq Kahn backing the Crawley based Airport which is great news for those investors that invested in the Car Park Investment from Park First. In the Article below Airport World is watching the battle unfold and it makes interesting reading. Gatwick Airport claims that a new YouGov poll shows that 63% of&nbsp;London’s councillors support its expansion compared to 44% for Heathrow. The airport, which is quick to point out that its expansion plans require no tax payer funding, like its rival Heathrow insists that a deliverable new runway for London is more important than ever for the UK economy since the Brexit vote. Stewart Wingate, Gatwick CEO, said; “London has united behind Gatwick expansion as the only scheme that gives us guaranteed growth while limiting the impact on the environment. “Crucially Gatwick expansion is the only plan that can actually be delivered and – unluke – Heathrow – it does not need £5 billion of taxpayer funding. “This money could otherwise be put towards vital infrastructure projects such as Crossrail 2, Thames river crossings and new homes. “The UK cannot afford decades more of Heathrow delay – let’s get on and build a new runway at Gatwick.” The airport already counts new Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, as one of its supporters, you can read the full article here…..   Interestingly the Telegraph takes a different spin on it and goes as far as to suggest that there could another alternative, and not the Thames Estuary as favoured by the last Lord Mayor Boris Johnson. No the papers business writter James Quinn pens that post Brexit requires real growth and that will only be attainable with a new runway at BOTH Gatwick and Heathrow! Read what he has to say in the following article: In the midst of a barrage of announcements and reverse ferrets from various members of the Westminster firmament yesterday&nbsp;morning, one was at risk of being overlooked. When, in between Michael Gove’s surprise leadership announcement and Theresa May’s press conference, Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin stood at the Despatch Box in the House of Commons for his regular departmental questions, most sets of Westminster ears were trained elsewhere. But, as he told a largely empty Commons chamber that  decision on extra airport capacity in the south-east of England would now be delayed until “at least October”</a>, those MPs who were present were far from surprised. The inability of successive governments to deliver a firm decision on the future…

Avoiding The Meet And Greet Scammers

Airport parking has been under the spotlight over the last few months, in particular, the “meet and greet” or the “valet parking” business. With less than scrupulous and unauthorised companies advertising discounted secure parking but in reality holiday makers and businesspeople’s cars are being left in fields, on the roadside and in some cases, used on the road! With airports such as Gatwick having their approved parking scheme’s, you wonder how these scammers manage to trick the public? The Manchester Evening News ran a story about one such company offering a secure meet and greet service at manchester airport that was not all that was advertised! Do you know where your ‘Meet and Greet’ parking firm is taking your car when you are on holiday? Companies offering ‘secure’ Meet and Greet parking around Manchester Airport are leaving cars in pub car parks in Wythenshawe. The M.E.N launched an investigation after we were flooded by horror stories from motorists who had returned from holiday to find worrying dash cam footage – and questionable mileage. While many of these firms, which are nothing to do with the official airport meet and greet service, have slick websites offering secure compounds with 24-hour surveillance and manned sites, it’s not always as it seems. Cars can spend hours on pub car parks – some more secure than others – or bumper-to-bumper on residential roads. On their return, holidaymakers pick up their vehicles, often unsuspecting of where they have actually been. We found evidence that four pubs in the Woodhouse Park area – The Cornishman, Woodpecker, The Happy Man and Mountain Ash – were being used to store cars. You can read the full story on the papers website.      Now it is not all bad news there are some good guys out there, Oliver Wilson writes for swift Airport Parking and has written and article entitled: What Questions To Ask Before Booking A Meet And Greet Survive? There is no doubt that Luton airport meet and greet is the most popular and convenient service of the modern era. But it is also important to understand how the service works.

So, let’s move towards the questions which you should ask before availing the amenity. You can read the full article here…. Clearly, if you follow a few simple steps when booking your off-site parking you can save yourself a lot of aggravation. When investing in airport parking spaces you need to be sure your investment is safe and the infrastructure is in place to avoid any issues, with Park First you have that safety net of a company that has over 13,000 parking…
