Simon Vincent, area president, EMEA, Hilton Worldwide, said, "London Luton Airport continues to see more and more traffic pass through its doors every year.  With 85% of the airport's passengers traveling via low cost airlines, our mid-market brand offering has already succeeded in striking a chord amongst this growing passenger group.  Hilton Garden Inn Luton North won three titles at this year's Holiday Extras Awards and this fantastic new Hampton by Hilton allows us to build an unrivalled presence in a market undergoing sustained growth."

Introducing Hampton by Hilton to London Luton Airport marks the growing significance of what is the U.K.'s fifth largest airport, and current proposals to develop the Airport could see passenger numbers grow from nearly 10 million per year in 2011 up to 18 million per year by 2031.  The hotel offers guests a discounted taxi service to the Airport, which can be reached in just five minutes.
