Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce has expressed concern at opposition to plans to develop London Luton Airport by local interest groups in Hertfordshire saying they ignore the importance of the airport to the local and sub-regional economy.
This week has been a busy one at Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce with the business support organisation hosting three events at their Kimpton Road offices.
The Chamber was used for training by Peter East Associates and for IT and Export courses.
London Luton Airport Operations Limited have launched a consultation on their vision for the future of the airport, and are seeking the feedback of all those who have an interest in its development and improvement. The airport is one of the region’s most important assets. It is currently the 5th largest airport in the UK, was the fastest growing in 2011, and flies an increasing number of UK business passengers abroad on business.
Bedfordshire Chamber is to be a partner for the London Luton Airport Meet the Buyer event at Putteridge Bury on the 18th October. The event provides a platform for local businessess to present information about their products and services to airport-based companies and potentially open up supply chain opportunities for airport businesses.
