London Luton Airport has been in Ardian's portfolio from November 2013 to June 2018.
A £110 million investment program was set up to increase the capacity of the airport by 50%, to improve overall passenger experience and create long-term sustainable value. Together with leading airport operator, Aena, Ardian invested heavily in developing the airport. As a result, the airport was utterly transformed and passenger numbers have increased from 9.7 million in 2013 to 15.8 million in 2017, making LLA one of the UK’s fastest growing airports.
In 2018, Ardian sold its stake in London Luton Airport to AMP Capital.
