London-Luton airport reopened

After the fire in the parking lot, it resumed flights in the afternoon

The normal schedule of flights at London-Luton airport resumed yesterday afternoon. They were temporarily suspended after a huge fire, which broke out on Tuesday evening around 9pm local time, devastated three platforms of the Terminal 2 multi-storey car park. The fire caused enormous disruption and it is estimated that 40,000 passengers were affected by the cancellation of departures and arrivals.

The Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service said the flames caused a "major structural collapse" of the building where the car park is located. Firefighters believe the cause of the fire was accidental. Meanwhile, the four firefighters and the airport employee who had breathing problems due to "smoke inhalation" during the operations to put out the flames have been released from hospital.

It is estimated that at least 125 routes have been cancelled. The restoration of flights took place yesterday starting from 4.30pm Italian time: the first air connection operated in Luton was the landing in London of a Ryanair aircraft coming from the Irish airport of Cork. The inconveniences could continue today, Thursday 12 October, with several flights delayed.
