London Luton Airport (LLA) has teamed up with the London Blitz American football team to promote the new Luton Airport Express service.

On Saturday May 10, London Luton Airport (LLA) will offer a complimentary luggage-carrying service for passengers boarding the new Luton Airport Express train from London St. Pancras station. Members of the London Blitz American football team will carry passengers’ luggage to the train.

According to new research by LLA, for three in five (59%) holidaymakers, the journey to the airport can be a major source of stress ahead of their trip. Unexpected travel delays (48%) and carrying heavy luggage (26%) are among the main causes of stress, the research found.
LLA also found that on average, British holidaymakers have up to three items to carry on their journey, from suitcases to prams. A third (33%) usually regret how much they have packed when travelling to the airport, the surveyed revealed.

Clare Armstrong, head of guest experience at London Luton Airport, said, "We know that carrying heavy suitcases and bags can make the beginning of a holiday feel like hard work. And our research shows that luggage is one of the main causes of contention for travellers before embarking on their next adventure.

“That's why we’ve teamed up with London Blitz to literally take the weight off holidaymakers’ shoulders this weekend. Our passengers will be able to start their holiday as soon as they board the new Luton Airport Express at London St Pancras.”

The 32-minute train service, which includes the new four-minute DART shuttle service between Luton Parkway station and the airport terminal, makes LLA more accessible than ever before. 

The Luton Airport Express departs from St Pancras International every 30 minutes with an average journey time of 32 minutes.
