While figures at Luton Airport are expected to rise in August, the total is still expected to be extremely low compared to previous years.
The data, which was released by London Luton Airport, illustrates how the coronavirus pandemic has been a devastating blow to the aviation industry.
The government recently announced that countries like France, the Netherlands and Malta have been taken off the UK’s list of air corridors.
This means holidaymakers returning to England after 4 a.m. tomorrow (Saturday 15 August) will have to self-isolate for 14 days due to quarantine rules.
EasyJet Holidays recently welcomed its first customers at London Luton Airport on August 1, while Wizz Air continues to expand there.
The airline currently flies to 58 destinations with more than a dozen new routes launched this summer.
Alberto Martin, CEO of London Luton Airport, said: “Seeing an increasing number of passengers pass through the airport safely is a rich reward for all the hard work and effort of our teams on the ground during this incredibly difficult time.
