Yesterday – on October 10, 2023, just before 9:00 PM, a fire broke out in the parking lot at Luton Airport.
One of the parked cars burst into flames, and the fire quickly spread.
It caused significant losses and inconveniences for passengers. A vast number of vehicles were destroyed – over 1,200 cars.
Furthermore, five people were injured, including four firefighters and one airport employee. The structure partially collapsed, but the firefighters managed to completely extinguish the fire.
More than 10 fire units worked on this operation.
As a result of this incident, flights were canceled, causing chaos at the airport.
Passengers, especially those whose cars were consumed by the fire, were stranded at the airport with no way to continue their journeys.
This must be a very challenging situation for the people waiting and for the airport staff.
However, I hope that the airport authorities will take appropriate measures to assist all those affected in this difficult situation, and that flights will be restored in the near future.
